100th Day of School Shirt

Today was the 100th day of school for my children.  My son had the assignment to assemble a collection of 100 items that he could bring in or wear to share with his first grade class.  We decided that we wanted to make this a wearable assignment and tossed around the idea of doing something with hearts since the 100th day fell on Valentine's Day.  It was determined, though, that hearts might be a little too "girly", so we went with his other love ~ sports!!  I had a baseball print fabric left over from another project, he had a red shirt in his closet that would be perfect, and I had some  Heat'n Bond Ultra Hold Iron-On Adhesive .  His assignment cost us nothing extra, turned out really cool and is totally something he can wear more than once.

Here's what we did:

1.  I ironed the Heat'n Bond to the wrong side of the baseball print.  Then, I just flipped the fabric over and started cutting out the individual little baseballs.  The paper backing made it really easy to cut the fabric ~ it's just like cutting a piece of paper.  While the paper did make it easy for me to cut, the small shapes would have been a little tricky for my son to do 100 of them.  So, being the nice mom that I am, I cut and just had him count!

2.  Once the baseballs were all cut out, we peeled the paper backing off of the first ten, and lined them up across the top of his shirt.  I ironed that row on, then we just repeated the process for nine more rows until we had 100 baseballs neatly lined up on the back of his shirt.

Hard at work lining up all those baseballs!

The ultra hold Heat'n Bond should stand up to repeated washings just fine, so my son will have a cool shirt to wear to school today and then be able to wear it throughout this spring's baseball season too.



  1. This is such a great idea. We didn't have to do a shirt or anything for Madison, but thinking that I might have to do one I researched it a bit and came across NOTHING like this!!!

  2. THank you for sharing! I found this on pinterest and am going to do something similar for my son's 100th day next week :)

  3. THanks for sharing!! My son loves basketball and is contemplating the idea and I do not want to spend the money buying 100 basketball buttons!

  4. Super cute! Where did you buy that fabric?

    1. I got it at JoAnn fabrics. I believe it was in the section with the cotton novelty prints. Last time I looked, I'm pretty sure they still had some.

  5. That's a cute idea. I might do something like this for my son next week for 100th day at his school. I have the same fabric that I got at Hobby Lobby.

  6. Thank you so much for the wonderful pictures and instructions! I am not "crafty," but completing this shirt by following your directions gave me a boost of "craft confidence!" Maybe I'll do another one some day! Today was my 1st grader's 100th day of school and he loved wearing it!
