I love monogrammed t-shirts, but I can never bring myself to ever buy such because then I wouldn't be able to pass it down to the next child (except Tucker lucks out this time). So I decided to use some scrap fabric that I had and some $3 shirts and try it myself. Don't look too closely. Lilly's (the last one that I did) definitely looks the best. I got better as I went. Practice makes perfect, right?
I am pleased with how they turned out...so pleased, in fact, that I may just go to a fabric store and buy some of their scrap fabric (cuter prints than what I have on hand) and try it again. Maybe monogrammed maybe something a little different, I have some ideas brewing.
Adam asked me what I loved most about doing these types of projects-is it the process of doing it? the end result? the compliments that you may receive? the fact that your kids have cute t-shirts? My answer was all of the above. I enjoy working with my hands and enjoy it even more when I don't have to spend very much money doing so.
