Today is Leif Erikson Day. In honor of the explorer Leif Erikson and my Scandinavian roots, I thought a viking inspired shirt for Connor should be in order. Don’t get excited it’s not the Vikings (as in the football team), it’s a more traditional viking ship (and definitely no purple and yellow).
I used the freezer paper method (if you don’t know how to do this, here’s an awesome tutorial. Wink. Wink.) I got some inspiration from viking ship images on pintrest and just drew my own directly on the freezer paper. I couldn’t find my x-acto knife to cut it out, so instead I used scissors. Took a bit longer.
Connor really liked it — and learning about Leif Erikson Day! I think also because we had Swedish meatballs from Ikea for dinner. Yum!
I didn’t even know about Leif Erikson day ~ thanks for sharing
I love that! Did you free-hand it after looking at pinterest? I’d love to make one for my nephew!
Are you willing to share the ship image. I love it!!!
