I made a couple of these cute shirts for friends last year who love libraries. Can you believe I didn't end up making my own (and I'm a librarian!) until last week? Ha, only a few weeks to wear it, but that's ok since I've never been able to get the iron-on transfer stuff to hold up well in the wash anyway.
I downloaded a scan of a vintage date due slip from Flickr and added my due date in the Adler typeface from urbanfonts.com, printed it in reverse on my iron-on transfer sheet and slapped it on my shirt. It's a bit crooked, but so are the date due slips when I'm the one sticking them in new books anyway! I look grumpy in the picture, but really it was just naptime. This makes a quick and easy gift for library and book lovers.
