We are visiting a pumpkin patch tomorrow, so I needed to make some cute shirts for Emily and Carter quickly (Lindsey is way past wearing cutesy custom shirts - so sad but true). I found some images online that I liked, cut them out, traced them onto some Heat n Bond, and then followed the instructions to attach them to the shirts (I couldn't find Carter a short sleeved shirt, and it is still super hot here, so I had to use a shirt he already had). I purchased a $4 tshirt for Emily, and I had all of the fabrics already. So, my total cost for BOTH shirts was $4! Not bad! My mom was kind enough to stitch around them using her sewing machine (thanks Mom!). I used layered buttons for their eyes. Also, for Emily's shirt, I added a few little embellishments to the bottom corner for some extra cuteness (kind of hard to see in the pictures, but there are is a little yo-yo and some cute buttons sewn on).
Here's how they turned out:
And I had to add this picture of my pretty Lindsey, even though she isn't wearing a "Mom-made" shirt - at least she wore a headband I made!
From start to finish, I think these shirts took around 2 hours to make. I did everything but the sewing part during Carter's nap! Easy and cute!
They will be wearing their shirts to the pumpkin patch tomorrow - pictures from that adventure coming soon!!!
