St Patty's Day T-Shirts and Video

Good evening all.  Hope you have had a great weekend.  We had a pretty low key one here.  Just hanging out enjoying the nice weather.  So my project for today is some T-shirts I made for my girls.  I really think they can out super cute and can't wait for them to wear them for St Patrick's Day.  These shirts are different from ones I have done in the past because I used fabric instead of paint for the decorations.  I used my Cricut to cut the fabric and learned a lot in the process.  I also made a video for you to share some of my tips.  Here are the shirts.

Didn't they come out great.  I love the gold buttons on the pot of gold.  Here is the video and I will put a recipe at the end.

T-Shrirt Recipe:

  • T-shirts:  I use regular t-shirts from Target instead of the craft store because they are softer and have more shape
  • Heat n' Bond
  • Fabric and embellishments from fabric store
  • Ironing Board and Iron
  • Shamrocks from Cricut Digital cart St Patrick's Day cut at 3.5" and 1.3"
  • Rainbow and Pot of gold from Simply Charmed cut at 2.4"
  • Text from Plantin Schoolbook Shadow cut at 1.12"
 So I hope you have enjoyed my video and the project.  The number one tip I can give you for cutting fabric is to use a new cricut blade.  It will reduce any tearing of the fabric.

I have decided to enter this project in two challenges this week.
I will leave you will a picture of my cuties in their t-shirts.  Have a great week!!
