So yesterday I ended up making three tshirts. They are pretty cute - if I can say so myself. Well, one I'm not crazy about but the other two - cute cute!! I did a red star on a blue shirt with some little firework-ish details around it (this is the one I'm not crazy about) with another small star on the back. Then I did a black shirt with a cool design I drew out with a heart and ribbon behind it and a smaller heart off to the side. I want to add an "E" to it somewhere - ya know - for Edward from Twilight. This one was the hardest one to do - I drew the pattern out on paper and pinned it to the shirt and stitched through the paper. It didn't seem like a bad idea, but it was hard - and my thread was a little too loose. So if I did that again, I'll need to pay more attention as I go.
THEN i got really brave and took a butterfly i'd cut out with the accucut machine at Scrap Etc, some fabric that came in the first Scripts kit, a tshirt and some embrodiery thread. so now i have a green tee with a cute butterfly reverse applique!! Now i'm thinking of about 400 other things i want to do. i wish i had about twenty other plain tshirts to play with now. I would love to take another one and do a KC (Kenny Chesney) and use old of my older Kenny shirts as the backing - that way I would have an original Kenny shirt for the show in a few weeks. So here's a close up of the butterfly::
I'll take pictures of my other shirts and post soon. I'm sure this will be a short lived obsession - I tend to do that a lot. Get all crazy about what I want to make and make it a bunch and then get burned out. So, a handful of shirts will probably be enough. I may try to do something for Cole though - out of some older shirts that I just can't get rid of - maybe a little blanket or some throw pillows or a wall hanging. I don't know. There are always so many cute kid clothes you just can't bare to part with, ya know? What do you do with them??
So what are you making right now?
