But...I managed to squeeze in one of these crafty plans last week! After seeing Jo's post on a quick t-shirt revamp she did for her son, it reminded me of the t-shirts I had stored away for Joshua, - plain ones so that I could personalise them at some point in the future.
I realised that personalising them didn't have to mean a laborious task, but just a quick embellishment with some funky fabric. So I chose some fabrics I know Joshua will love and printed off some templates using Word.
For the first one, I chose this lovely starry, brushed cotton fabric and made a huge letter 'J'. I've zig-zaged round it with bright orange thread (one of Joshua's favourite colours).
Ta-da! Looks pretty cool I think.
For the second one, I used some fabric he'd spied earlier in the week as I'd been using it for another (secret) project. He's really into guitars at the moment so this fabric was perfect for his t-shirt.
I cut out one of the guitars and appliqued it to the t-shirt - I added strings for a little extra touch!
I then cut out a huge star from the fabric and appliqued this to the centre of the t-shirt -
I absolutely *love* how this turned out!!
Here's Joshua wearing the 'J' one, it was the night we put up the tree, so he's having a feel of every single tree decoration!
