I have always enjoyed being crafty. I remember getting really excited about stickers and fun stationary when I was little. Well its good to know that some things in life never change!

I was introduced to scrapbooking in 2005 and have been hooked ever since. My love of crafting has branched out to include DIY, projects, gardening, baking, and canning. I hope to share my projects here.

Princessaurus Shirt

Hi all!
Today I am sharing a t-shirt I made for my cousin's daughter. She loves dinosaurs and its not too easy to find girly dinosaur shirts.

I cut this cute dino from Create a Critter at about 5 inches. I used two different colored pink heat transfer vinyl and layered the pieces. I did use my Gypsy to hide a few contours on two of the layers.

The font is from Nursery Rhymes, its 1.25 inches. I really like it and use it a lot for my girly font. I used Glitter heat transfer vinyl for the hat as well as the font. Normally I would lay out the letters exactly how I want them to be on the shirt and then cut it that way, however, I didn't want there to be too much waste with the glitter vinyl, so I cut them separately and ironed them on one at a time.

The hat was cut from Once Upon a Princess. I sized it up on my Gypsy to fit the dino's head.

After I ironed on all my vinyl, I took a few thin strips of glittery tulle and sewed them to the tip of the hat. I added a few heat set gems to the hat as well.

I am quite pleased with how well it turned out. It is the first time I ever made a shirt with this type of vinyl layering. I am eager to try more vinyl designs on clothing.

Thanks for visiting today!

Have a Great and Crafty Day!
