So 4 of the shirts I designed with the dinosaur appliques.
Apatosaurus in green and blue
Triceratops on a white shirt that I tie dyed with water and fabric paint.
T-Rex on yellow with green
Steggy on orange with yellow
So then with the other two I decided to make my own appliques. I asked Bug what other shirts he might like and he said a Batman shirt and a fuzzy teddy bear shirt. So for the batman shirt I made an applique of yellow cloth on a black t shirt and then hand drew the symbol in pencil and painted it with black fabric paint. I then touched it up and traced the design with black fabric paint.
Then with the Teddy bear shirt I cut out the face pieces from fake fur cloth and sewed it all together and then stitched it to the shirt. I finished off the face with button eyes and a nose.
After we were all done with it I bought two more shirts both woman's sizes, one for me and one for my MIL. The one for me I used a smaller dino decal on and painted it with the words "Dino Mommy". The one for my MIL I painted with Bug's handprints and gave it to her as her Mother's Day gift.
All in all we spent less than 20$ in supplies to make 6 kids shirts and 2 adult shirts. Considering most adult shirts run around 12-20$ each and kid shirts run 5-10$ I figure I saved myself roughly 80$.
