nacho and Pepe
Artist Statement: Here's a bright and sunny little shirt, perfect for playing in the winter, spring, and fall.
The artwork is based on illustrations included on the "Win Pets" font created by Samuel Marcius. I have transferred the artwork as a reverse appliqué on a 100% handmade baseball tshirt.
Front and back are made of an orange 100% cotton jersey fabric. The brown sleeves and appliqué are a cotton/polyester blend of interlock jersey. The appliqué area is also lined underneath with lightweight interfacing so baby won't feel an itch. All fabrics have been pre-washed and tumble dried to avoid uneven shrinkage.
The size of this shirt is 12-18 months. Please see specific dimensions on this image: http://ny-image2.etsy.com/il_fullxfull.50473526.jpg
Fear not at laundry time. Just toss the shirt in the washing machine with all other baby clothes in warm or cold water in the delicate cycle. Tumble dry low. Sure, this may give Nacho and Pepe a bit of "uncombed fur", but they'll still look adorable.
