I think this shirt would be perfect for Memorial Day or the 4th of July. I actually made this for my son and when I showed it to him, he ran away. I usually take pictures of him in tie shirts if I can and he thought I was going to make him model. In order to get it on him (he's 3.5, by the way), I had to promise to put the camera away. So I never did get any pics of him in it, but I will next time. I'll have to be sneaky, but I'll do it. Once he realized that he wasn't going to break any child labor laws, he loved it.
