How to Make Patriotic Shirts

The 4th of July is my favorite holiday! I love enjoying the summer sun, going to the parade, watching the hot dog eating contest, and of course the fireworks! Sometimes it is hard to find just the right patriotic shirts for my family to wear. I feel like a lot of them are really cheesy, or super trashy. So, I have to rely on myself and make my own! I will show you how to make patriotic shirts, too!

Willy Wonka Golden Ticket Costume

Willy Wonka is a family favorite at our house. We love the book, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and the movies. That’s why we knew we needed our family Halloween costume to be a Willy Wonka family costume. The Golden Ticket is such an important part of the story that we had to have that as one the costumes. So to kick off the no sew Halloween costumes for 2018, here is the Golden Ticket costume!

We’re headed to Disneyland next month and we’re getting everything prepped and ready to go!

That’s why I loved this simple Mickey Mouse inspired design I came up with!

How to Make a Shirt With Many Types of Vinyl: 100 Day of School Shirt

It was the 100 day of school recently and we had to make a shirt with 100 of something on it. When I talked with my kindergartner, she instantly knew she wanted 100 hearts on her shirt! Instead of cutting and gluing 100 hearts on a shirt, I wanted to make a shirt that she could wear again and again… without totally wasting a shirt.

I always love hearing about life hacks that people use. I also LOVE seeing how people organize things in their lives and I wanted to share an easy hack with you! I have tried lots of ways to organize my vinyl from Expressions Vinyl over the years, but once I found a way that worked for me, I have stuck with it ever since. It has been 6 years and I am still using this method, so it must be a winner!

Layered Vinyl Christmas Tree

I absolutely love making my own Christmas decor. Mostly because I have a hard time finding Christmas decor that I absolutely love in the store! One way that I always enjoy making decor is with vinyl. I heard a quote that I sort of liked, but it was a little too cheesy for my taste, so I changed it a bit. My saying is, “Laugh, Play, Jingle all the Way”. I love how this fun Christmas tree turned out with this little phrase on it. I have plans of making shirts for my girls with this same phrase on it!

Thankful Thanksgiving Sign

Thanksgiving is one of those holidays that seems to get skipped a lot. The sad thing is it is one holiday that truly stands for something that we should all be paying attention to. It isn’t just a Thursday where we stuff our faces and make shopping plans for the next day. It is a time where we can really reflect on what we have been blessed with and surround ourselves with the people we love. I wanted to focus on being grateful for the entire month of November, so I made this sign that we can look at throughout the month and even add our own leaves to with things we are grateful for if we wanted to.

I love that this sign features geometric leaves. I am a sucker for geometric ANYTHING!

Curls Gone Wild Shirt Design Download

Having daughters that are 5 years apart makes it a little tricky when I want them to wear matching outfits. I have been lucky to find some really cute matching outfits, but sometimes my options are little to non existent. Thankfully, it is really easy to make matching shirts with iron on vinyl! That is exactly what I did when I made these adorable “Curls Gone Wild” shirts for my two curly haired little munchkins.
