“Mom!” she called out from her bedroom. “Is my animal shirt clean? I want to wear it to the sleepover Friday.” What could be better than a favorite Friday shirt for your 18” doll? Well, how about one with a cute animal on it? The Friday Shirt PDF pattern by Peppermintsticks features a pet parade of dogs and cats. The top has ¾ length dolman sleeves, a boat neckline and ties at one side for an asymmetrical shape. The top is relaxed and comfy just like every Friday should be. Wear it during the day with leggings, at night as a sleep shirt or for beachwear, over your best swimsuit. The pattern includes a pet parade of 17 dog and cat photos that can be printed onto t-shirt transfer paper (using an ink jet printer) and ironed onto the Friday shirt. Add ribbon, beads or decorative trim to the animals to personalize the pets.
As a bonus make your American Girl Pets ® a Friday t-shirt too! The t-shirt is designed for three body styles that will fit the newer My American Girl Pets® along with the older style Pepper, ® Meatloaf, ® and Grace’s ® French Bulldog. The shirt will also fit Sophia’s® plush puppy and kitten. Hurry, Friday is just around the corner!

This pattern works up beautifully. Stay tape for seams and paper (coffee filters) work wonders. Also, I hand basted the bottom hem and ties instead of pinning. Took several minutes to baste and then several more to remove basting thread but I ended up with a very smooth and even finish.
I made the doll shirt out of an orange knit, and paired it with some pink and orange stripped leggings. It went together easily and is so cute. I didn't use the pet picture iron-on, but instead added a store bought appliqué.
Absolutely LOVE this pattern! Easy to to follow directions make this quick to construct and fun to make. Lots of options here...both for embellishing the doll shirt and for making the adorable pet shirts! This one is definitely a must-have!
Totally cute, easy & adorable. A fast sew and instant gratification with these adorable pet grahics! I love it!
I bought this pattern for making a swimsuit cover up. It works nicely for that. It is easy and quick to sew up. I have not made the pet shirts yet, as I don't have a play pet to model it!
