DIY Graphic T-shirt tutorial

Yes, more graphic t-shirts.  And we’re not even going to apologize!  But it’s the final set for a while, so enjoy!  Today we’re over at Project Run & Play sharing a tutorial on how to create these pajama shirts using a Cricut MakerSport Flex Iron On, a Cricut BrightPad and a Cricut EasyPress.


We used the Vitamin Zzz and I Woke Up Like This digital designs for this tutorial.  Plus we sewed 2 Aurora Raglan patterns into pajama shirts.

The girls are thrilled with their new pajamas and can’t wait to have a pajama party!  I tried to make these a little more summery by using the option for short sleeves and by the fabrics I used.

Annie thinks this Vitamin Zzz graphic is very fun and a funny play on words!  I used navy Sport Flex Iron On to create the graphic.  It was my first time using the sport flex iron on, and I had a little difficulty because I didn’t know it was so thin!  My mats definitely need to be cleaned so they can grip onto it better next time.

Annie’s Aurora Raglan is sewn in tunic length.  It’s just right for summer pajamas she says!  Both girl’s pajama pants are the Dressage Leggings pattern.  When you have the pattern cut out in their size, you just keep using it!

Tina absolutely adores her new pajamas!  Her Aurora Raglan is actually cut in the dress length, so hopefully by summer it’ll still fit her!

As I was creating this pajama shirt, I let Tina choose the vinyl she wanted me to use for the little flourish underneath the words.  She (of course) chose glitter vinyl!  And then later in the day she brought me a dress from her closet and said, “This dwess needs some spawkles too, Mommy!”  Such a little princess!

Want to know a secret?  The mint colored fabric on the front and back of their pajama shirts is actually from a skirt I sewed for myself but almost never wore!  But you can find some of the super soft Art Gallery Fabric jersey knit in Icy Mint color here.

I can’t find this exact fabric online, but here’s a rayon jersey knit (cool for summer and very lightweight) that would coordinate with the Icy Mint fabric very beautifully!

Well that’s it for pajama sewing and graphic tee sewing from us for a while!  Which ones did you enjoy the most?
