At work, each month is filled with different themed days to participate in. Earlier this week was “crafty t-shirt day.”
I didn’t have many supplies on hand, and I didn’t want to spend money for something I’d only wear for a few hours. I figured I’d try to make it craft themed, and try to use a few different crafting techniques instead.
I started searching through all of my scraps to see what I could dig up. I found a leftover remnant of some pink polka dot material. I used a paper punch to make a template for the letters, which I then traced onto the fabric.
I didn’t have any stabilizer or wonder under to applique the letters, but surprisingly it didn’t move around/stretch and came out straight!
This also gave me an excuse to use my cricut again 🤗! I had some red foil iron on. I think it would’ve looked better if it was a lighter color because it was not enough of a contrast to the black t-shirt. It made it a little difficult to read the letters but oh well!
I LOVE this font for some reason! I think it’s super cute and I think the stitched outline is a nice detail. I made a mini yarn ball with sewing pins to mimic knitting needles, but I ended up leaving it off.
I’m most pleased that the letter appliqués went on so smoothly and didn’t give me any trouble.
Till next time!
