No pinching here!

Well I couldn't let just one kid be festive in their St Patrick's Day gear... On Wednesday night, yes I am a huge procrastinator I know, I decided the other 4 kids needed something green to wear since K already had a shirt. So I whipped up a few shirts for them.
The older boys got spray paint graffiti-ish shirts.


Lil B's shirt was a little short so I added a strip of green from a scrap tee.

These were done with freezer paper, instead of using it as a stencil and trying to cut out all the little pieces I just put the design on and sprayed over it. Let it dry, take off the freezer paper and throw it in the wash. Super easy!
If you've never tried spray painting on shirts, try it! It's fun and you can do just about anything with it. And once you wash it, the paint isn't stiff at all..

Since that used up what little bit of green spray paint I had, I did felt appliques for the other two.
First up is T's. Since green happens to be his favorite color, he loved this!


On to Miss B, hers had to be a little girlie so I used purple felt and green thread.


I did hers a bit differently because by that point, my hand was getting cramped from the detailed cutting. Plus I didn't want all of them to be exactly alike.

Maybe next year I won't put this off till literally the last minute and I can be a little more creative with them.. Haha we will see...

And as always, I will be linking up to some of these great linky parties.

Hope everyone has a great weekend!
