feeling under appreciated.

Moses loves Yo Gabba Gabba.
We found this show because one day I was flipping through the channels and happened upon it during a beat boxing segment with Biz Markie...I knew Moses would love it...he LOVES to beat box. :) Since then we have seen every episode.

My favorite part of the show is that all the songs they sing are actually life applicable...from "Don't Bite Your Friends" to "Lots of things can be dangerous"...we actually catch Moses singing Yo Gabba songs at appropriate times.
DJ Lance Rock is the host...I guess you would call him that.
I thought Moses would love a DJ Lance shirt...but we aren't much into buying character clothing...so I came up with this alternative (since then I have seen others do it).
It's just felt fabric and simple stitching...I LOVE it...I don't think it could have come out cuter.
I was SO excited to show Moses...I just KNEW he would LOVE it!
In my head he would jump up and down, maybe squeal and tell me what a great mom I was...he would want to wear it every day...because that is how much he would love it.

In reality...he looked at it and said "How about a face?" Meaning "Give him a face".
He wouldn't even wear it...he said we could give it away.

Ouch.

I'm still hoping he will come around.
Because I still think it's pretty cool...with my broken heart and all.

My son loves that show too (not as much as Diego) but I LOVE that shirt. It's a great interpretation of the show without being too cartoony. Brilliant!

I have to tell you that now I have "Don't bite your friends" stuck in my head. Thanks a lot:)

I think you did a great job! All of your re-creations are brilliant! Maybe Moses would like it more if you added a beat box? Boys are funny like that. I have 7 nephews, and I can never predict an outcome. I oould spend $50.00 on a cool hoody or give them a rock-they'd go for the rock of course! Or tell me they aren't into hoodies anymore.....oye

Beth said...

oooo, i made one almost just like this back in april. it is one of rosie's most favorite shirts. he'll probably, eventually, want you to make one for every character. i'm working on it, but haven't yet. :)

Awww...sorry he didn't like it. Maybe it will grow on him.

Beth love your version too! Cute button :-)

That shirt is Crazy cute! That is by far my kids faveorite show and Wow Wow Wubzy. I think that the characters are so cute and fun, I also like the guest stars. dont worry , he might like it sooner or later, I really like it!

Great story! My 4 yr old Noah has just recently become a fan of Yo Gabba Gabba. He even pauses the show if he has to get his diaper changed or when it's dinner time. Wouldn't want to miss a thing, lol!

*jimaie.marie* said...

aww, don't you hate that? boys boys boys :)
It turned out absolutely adorable tho!! i LOVE it!!

BC said...

We love this show too!!!! The shirt is AWESOME! So creative and I knew right away it was DJ Lance Rock!

HeartfeltHandmade said...

oh but it IS soo cool, I love it - I'd wear it!!

Wisconsin Girl said...

So cute and such a great idea! Wish I had the talent to make things on a whim like that! What fun! It's so much better knowing that you made it especially for him rather than buying it off the rack.

Kristi said...

Ahhh, I'm so sorry. I've been making skirts for my daughter lately, not realizing that my son wanted me to make something for him too. Today we were in Hobby Lobby and he found some Lightnening McQueen fabric (character fabric is not exactly my favorite) and said he wanted me to make him a shirt. Maybe you need to make a onesie like that for Aaron and then Moses will want one of his own?

At any rate, it is a cute shirt and a great job making it. I like it!

The Parrotts said...

Oh no! It really is adorable! My husband and I love Yo Gabba Gabba, I found it while channel surfing when I was pregnant. Hopefully our Paige will enjoy it as much as we do soon...she's 10 months right now.

A local radio morning show actually did a bit where they sent one of the guys to a Burger King drive-thru to order by incorporating it into the "Party in My Tummy" song, with the goal to get the employee to participate...I was laughing SO hard! I believe you can hear/see it at freebeerandhotwings.com (I know, ridiculous name). Thanks for the great shirt idea!

ice zone lady said...

Oh man! My daughter LOVES Yo Gabba Gabba! (You know that translates to my husband and I loving it, really. Ha!) That shirt is SUPER adorable! I have been daydreaming about how rad YGG shirts would be, but I haven't had the time to be crafty for a while. I guess what I'm getting at is, I would totally buy that shirt (or a similar one) if you're interested in selling it!

By the way, I just caught myself at work today singing a song from that show! "Everybody wash your hands, lather up (lather up)!" LOL!

I've heard of this show but still haven't seen it. I'm curious about it now. That shirt is way cool even if Moses doesn't want to wear it. Just wait...maybe he'll change his mind :) It's funny how kids have such an opinion about things.

Jen~ Lipstick and Laundry said...

That shirt rocks... That show scares me... hahahah

La Dolce Vita said...

Never seen the show, but the T is too stinkin' cute!

My crazy crazy life said...

My kids are totally possessed when that show comes on...they love it!!! That shirt is totally cool! I hate character stuff too. Good job!

Tiffany said...

That shirt rocks! And if you are interested in doing a giveaway, or making another one to sell, please count me in. My 2 yr old is crazy about that show--I kinda like it myself--and I'm thinking he'd like the shirt (although he's not really at the age where he has much of an opinion yet)!

doughmesstic said...

I LOVE this idea! I am not a sewing person, but I think even I oculd tackle a project like that!
Thanks for the inspiration!

Jodi said...

Really great shirt...
Plus, just thought I'd put it out there that I know one of the guys that co-creates the show (Christian Jacobs). He's every bit as cool as his show.

aw, sad! i can't believe he doesn't love it. i love to make applique t-shirts and recently made an iron on cookie monster t-shirt for my little boy because, like you, i refuse to purchase character related clothing. i hope he comes around because otherwise that is one darn stinking cute shirt that will go to waste!
