Cut a 6-inch x 9-inch rectangle from blue foam. Place brads through foam evenly spaced around outer edge. Cut a 3-inch x 4-inch rectangle from lime foam and place on blue foam as shown. Remove backing from foam shapes and decorate rectangles as desired. Use Sharpie to add lines to green foam piece. Use glitter glue to embellish shapes.

Cut up back center of shirt. Cut small pieces of tape, place sticky sides together and attach to back of shirt to make tabs. Add Velcro to tabs for shirt closure.
