Chalkboard T-shirts

Since moving to Wyoming this January, I haven't had a chance to play with my brand new Cricut machine until today- So I decided to do some freezer paper stencils which are so easy with an electronic cutting machine. The other day I came across some clearance chalkboard paint for 72 cents and thought, why not try making a shirt with it? I was a little dubious of the results, but I gave it a try.... And got some terrific results! :) I am quite pleased with how they turned out! :)

The baby's shirt wipes clean every time I pick him up and he drools a fair amount, so in hindsight, I am not sure a baby shirt is a great idea- but it's cute and it matches his big brother. Plus it cost next to nothing to make, so I am not worried about it! I made the pants too, out of an old shirt I had that I no longer wear.
Easiest pants to make ever! I got the instructions from here- . Easy peasy- and Lincoln is LOOOONG and skinny so either his pants fall off his bum or they are high-watered. These seem to be really comfy and they fit.
So there you have it. These are my two greatest creations! (The boys, not the shirts)



Whoa, that is a super cool video on how to make baby pants! I'll definitely have to try that! And very cool shirts, too. Nice!
