Thursday night we had the third Girls’ Craft Night. I’m a slacker, cause I really haven’t posted much on Craft Night before. The first Craft Night we had was back in November. We did Freezer Paper Stencil Shirts. There are numerous tutorials online, one of the first ones I came across was Dana’s. Many shirts were made that night and it was super fun. In December we made ornament wreaths, well I went against the grain and did a topiary. This time around the planned project was Valentine’s wreaths, and shirts again. So I’m devoting this post to the shirts, cause they turned out so great (not the wreaths didn’t), but doing shirts is so fun. And a GREAT cheap and EASY project to do so your kids can have custom cool clothes. Not to mention, our new method with the Cricut, really expands the possibilities of what you can create, and makes it pretty effortless. No more tracing, cutting, pain in the rear placing the design. Like this shirt Jen did, I mean it may look simple, but cutting all that out and figuring what needed cut, what didn’t need cut, piecing things together, it took FOREVER. Thankfully the finished shirt looks AWESOME!
But look at all the things we did with the Cricuts. Much less stress involved :)
Donna did a retro reverse bus for her little man.
Her daughter got this beautiful butterfly shirt with detailing on the sleeve. Something like that would have been impossible to cut out by hand.
Jen made these for her kids. I hope she post pics of the shirts on facebook soon, so I can steal them to post on my blog. :) Don’t know if you can see but the guitars have hearts on them and say Love and Rock.
And last but not least my shirt I made for Brooke. I chose the same design Hilary had used. I was happy that Donna had this design in her Cricut collection, cause it’s exactly what I was picturing.I made hers a little fancy, by appliquéing the black heart on it.
Thanks Donna and Tyann for bringing your Cricuts!!
Here they are hard to work.
Can't wait till next craft night! I think we're going to work on Saint Patty's Day shirts.
