It looks like all I sew these day is graphic tees! Oh well, they love them and they’re really easy to make. Today I have a tutorial over at Project Run & Play on how to use Cricut Infusible Ink Markers to create these fun pajama shirts.
I used the .jpg versions of the I’m Out and Sleep Mode graphic designs for these graphic tees. I used the Easy Street Tee pattern because it’s a super easy shirt to sew and a big favorite for these boys to wear!
David chose the green fabric and the I’m Out graphic. At first he wondered what it meant, and how it was related to sleeping, but after a little explaining, he thinks this is the funniest pajama shirt ever!
I’m suspecting he’ll be wearing this during the day too… An aside here, I’m sorry for the poor quality of these photos! Ever since I updated my iPhone, the camera settings are all different and I can’t seem to get them figured out to where the photos are very good quality! I’ll keep messing around…
Lowell chose to have red lower sleeves and the Sleep Mode graphic. I sewed him a size 6X in the Easy Street Tee, but dipped down the hemline in the front at his request so he could tuck it in…which I suspect means he’s going to be wearing it during the day too!
It’s okay, I love it when they love to wear the things I sew for them! And letting them help make the design decisions on this one really made the difference, I think!
Have you checked out all the pajama themed digital designs from Project Run & Play? This week there are a bunch of tutorials on how to use digital designs in different ways…you don’t have to have an expensive cutting machine, like my tutorial today proves!
This was my first time using Cricut Infusible Ink Markers and it was sort of fun! The ink actually infuses into the fabric once you heat press it after you’re finished coloring the design. The only difficulty I had was that my fabric had spandex in it, and tended to stretch as I was coloring the design. I think this could be mitigated by temporarily adding some interfacing to the back of the fabric.
Alright, it’s Sleep Mode for me…I’m Out!
