As a Grandma, this is a wonderful idea and I would love to receive the gift. As a grandma, I have made T-shirts like this for each of my grand babies. It says I Love xxxx (child's name).

I used the iron-on transfer paper for the bear t-shirts as they won't need much cleaning. I have used fabric sheets for my printer that I sewed onto a Quilt for longer wear and tear. I intend to make more picture pillows/quilts for my babies.
