It's all about the craftiness

No, not really. But I did want to share what I made for my Alli-girl today. These:
Photobucket
I bought the shirts (plain) at Wal-Mart (I love that store) for $3 a piece - can you believe that!? Crazy awesome, right!? Anyways, I still have a ton of Heat-n-Bond lite from the last time I did appliqued shirts (last September & at Christmas). It's about $5-6 per roll (and that is enough to do tons of shirts for all your kids, their friends around the neighborhood, at church AND at school). I used my Cricut to cut out the Heat-n-Bond in the shapes that I wanted, then ironed the H-n-B to the fabric, peeled off the paper backing and then ironed the applique to the shirts. Then I just sewed around all the edges to secure them to the shirt .They will fray a bit after washing, which I think looks cool! I added buttons (stitched on with embroidery floss) and ribbon for some extra pizazz. Fun, eh!? Well, I think so. ;)

Super Cute! I might start doing that with my boys. Of course, I'll have to do dinosaurs and monster trucks instead of cute cupcakes and flowers. Thanks for being so crafty!
