I love to copy expensive crafting ideas. But there's a reason I don't go into business myself when I do it. Usually what I end up with is totally amateur and I begin to understand why the person I copied from charges so much for his or her creation!
At An Affair of the Heart yesterday I saw several adorable t-shirts for Brynne. But I absolutely refuse to pay $30+ for something I am certain I can do myself, even if it does end up looking a little amateur!
I immediately went to Wal-Mart and Hobby Lobby last night and bought what I needed to make two of the super-cute holiday shirts I saw. I could have done them cheaper, had I been patient and waited for some sales. But I still managed to make one for about $10 and the other for about $15 or so.
And here they are ...
Brynne's going to wear this to her Thanksgiving Feast at school on Tuesday. The colors didn't show up near as vibrant as they are in person. It is so cute!
And here is a Christmas one!
Isn't it beautiful! At the bottom of the shirt is the hair clippie I made to match. I love the shimmer of the red ribbon against the crystals! She'll wear this one to one of her many Christmas functions.
I had so much fun doing these this morning! And, really, they look almost as good as the professional ones I saw yesterday. They look much more vibrant and pretty in person, but I just wanted to share them! I'm going to attempt the fuzzy zebra print Christmas tree next. It should be super-easy!
