So, for this blog hop, I had originally planned on making a wreath, but I couldn't find a styrofoam wreath shape to start with in my town so I will have to pick one up next time I get to a JoAnn's or Michaels and I will still try to make one and post it later. Anyway, I had to come up with a different project. I decided to make a shirt for my 11 year old son to wear to school on St. Patrick's Day.

My husband has Irish background in his family so my kids love to celebrate St. Patrick's Day and make kind of a big deal out of it. I realized that I don't have a cricut cartridge with a shamrock on it so I printed one out from the internet and used it as a pattern to cut the shamrock out of my iron-on fabric. I then colored the shamrock with markers. I also typed out the word "Lucky" in a paint program, printed it out on paper and used the paper letters as a pattern to cut out the letters from the iron on fabric. I also colored the letters black.

I then ironed it onto the t-shirt I bought for my son. Here are the pictures I took.

After I finished it, he told me he wanted me to add "I'm Irish" to it. I guess we'll see if I can get that added to the bottom before he wears it to school. :)

Here is a close-up of the t-shirt......

I hope you like my project. :)
