The Short One has been begging for a key chain to attach to the zipper of her school back pack. We finally got around to making one this week. We had so much fun we ended up making several of them to give to some of her friends. This was a quick project to do together leaving the Short One happy and me with more cash in my pocket since everything was found in my studio!
I LOVE the newest Imagine Cartridge called Notebook Doodles. Oh what fun I had. I took an old pair of shoes, used white Gesso to cover them, allowed that to dry. I printed the little character designs onto iron on transfer paper. I then cut up the iron on paper and transferred it on to yellow cotton fabric and attached these patches to the shoe with glue. I then used Ranger Enamel Assents in black to outline the patches.
Happy crafting xoxo
I used the Cricut Sweater Weather Cartridge to create an ugly Christmas sweater t-shirt design. I did this because I live in Arizona and even on Christmas day a sweater can be a bit warm. So this year when we are invited to an Ugly Christmas Sweater Party I thought I’d create the Christmas sweater concept that could be layered with a long sleeve t-shirt.
I had a stretched out, plain, pink t-shirt that I decided to give a re-style to. I cut the shirt up the front and pulled it in together to “tighten up” the shirt and then sewed it back together.
I cut a piece of pink patterned fabric and ironed it into a pocket shape. I cut a squirrel on my Cricut using the Create A Critter Cartridge out of black construction paper and used that to burn a screen on my YUDU. I then screen printed the squirrel onto canvas in pink ink on the YUDU. I ironed it to the pocket using Heat-n-Bond and then sewed the squirrel pocket to the t-shirt.
Now I have a re-styled, new feeling t-shirt in pink to celebrate Breast Cancer Awareness month.
