We love doing crafts at our house. My kids especially love making things that they can wear. It’s a thing of pride to showcase your artwork:-)

Well, this time, for making shirts, I decided to try something different.

I looked up ‘Ironman, Captain America, and Amber from Sofia the First’ and searched for simple coloring sheets. I printed out what I liked and then the moment of truth took place…

I put my daughter’s Crayola Light Table INSIDE the shirt, put the coloring sheet on the the light table inside the shirt and turned it on…

I was THRILLED that my ‘in theory’ worked! The light table perfectly illuminated the coloring sheet through the t-shirt!!!!

I used my STAINED by Sharpie brush tip fabric markers to trace the coloring sheets and fill it all in.

We had such a blast! My kids LOVE their shirt<3!!! The best thing is that I can buy a 5 pack of t-shirts for $7 at Walmart and MAKE it into whatever character t-shirt I need it to be. My son currently only wants to wear shirts with Captain America and Ironman on it…instead of paying $8-$10 per shirt, I can make a weeks worth:-). For my daughter, she can now have whatever obscure character she wants on a t-shirt! Love love love! She wanted Princess Amber from Sophia the First with a unicorn<3. You betcha we can do that!!!! Insert mommy happy dance!!!!

Is it perfect? No. Am I professional artist? Far from it! However, I can trace with markers:-)

Remember…They Will Love Your Effort<3!!!

Hi! My name is Dominique and I'm lucky enough to be the wife to my True Love and mother to a little girl and a little boy. I grew up in the Midwest but have loved living in NC, our new home. I'm actually an Industrial Engineer by schooling, but am now a domestic engineer(Stay-at-home-Mom) and feel very blessed to have this job. I have always loved the challenge in making the most of things...whether it's figuring out that a filing cabinet , a $10 piece of countertop and a few scraps of wood can be turned into a desk, that a curtain sheer, some ribbon, and a square piece of fabric can be transformed into an Elsa-like dress, or how to provide an interesting lunch for my little girl who is in a peanut free classroom. I love to figure things out and to create. I hope you enjoy reading my posts. I hope that my posts will inspire you to create. I hope that with my posts you will see that They Will Love Your Effort, whether things turn our perfect or not;-)
