I made this shirt with heat press flock vinyl and rhinestones. This first picture is so you can see the flock vinyl…very cool stuff. My son is in gymnastics and he had a pretty big smile when I showed him the shirt. Granted, pink isn’t exactly a boy color, but since I’m wearing it, who cares, right?
Black clothing is hard to photograph without distorting the other colors. The first two pictures are truer to color but I wanted to show a “completed” shirt. I’d love to see your projects using heat press vinyl and/or rhinestones! I’ve made several other shirts with rhinestones and have to say, it can be a bit addicting…and oh so fun! Don’t forget to mirror your image before you cut the design, have fun with it!

How fun is this? I found a video (from the Cricut website) by a 12 year old girl (yeah, you heard right, 12 years old!) who gave a great tutorial on how to make shirts using your Cricut and freezer paper. I didn’t have any fabric paint so I decided to try it by air brushing it with Copic markers. Basically you cut the design out on freezer paper (shiny side up) then using a dry iron (no steam) iron the stencil on to your shirt (face down) and paint away. The freezer paper will peel off once cool, though you’ll want to wait until the paint is dry. What a fun way to customize pillow cases, tote bags, jeans, or whatever else makes you smile!
The green shirt I washed and dried in the dryer and it seemed to be okay. It did fade a little bit so I would recommend letting it dry flat. The white shirt I picked up today at Target and haven’t washed yet so we’ll see how it holds up. I have seen lots of really creative shirts using this method and of course, I just had to try it! Thanks for looking!
HERE’s the video if you’re interested!

I bought this Scallop Bag die last year and finally made something with it. The chick and flower stamps are from Kitchen Sink. I cut the grass by hand, stamped the heart, and added velcro to keep the bag closed. The little chicks in this set are so sweet!

My husband’s niece just had a baby boy last week. Yikes! Good thing I bought the onesies in a bigger size so they’ll still fit. I started this gift set awhile ago and finally bought the iron on transfers to finish it. The bunny was watercolored, cut out and is on pop dots to give him some depth.
My husband has logo t-shirts and sweatshirts for his drum school and we thought it’d be cute for the baby to have his own logo onesie. I CASED the heart shaped tin filled with onesies from Lauren’s blog post HERE. Thanks for looking!

A piece of birthday cake for my husband’s birthday. I know, not very masculine, however, in real life, that’s how cakes are, right? LOL! Men don’t care what a cake looks like…only that it tastes good! The cake template was cut out using the cartridge Tags, Bags, Boxes & More (Cricut). I used a transfer sheet for the window and Liquid Applique to border the window. Liquid pearls were used for the center of the flowers and I filled the box with dark chocolate…his favorite.
