back to school with diy shirts - dude

Back to school shopping is always fun, but it can put a real dent in your pocketbook. This year, I had fun finding inspiration and making Parker's shirts using the Cricut Explore and four dollar shirts from Target.

Parker has a good friend named Jude so, of course, Parker calls Dude. And not only that, but Parker calls most boys with straight brown hair Dude because he thinks they are Jude. So confusing and so adorably cute. So cute, in fact, that we needed to make a shirt in honor of it. Here is how you can make your own. Find a font in the Cricut Design Space or upload your own (I used Arial Black). Then, simply load your mat with Cricut Iron-on Lite, mirror the image, and press GO. Continue with these instructions to iron on the image.

This project was submitted as an entry into the Cricut Design Star challenge. Cricut has asked a number of bloggers to enter projects with specific themes as a fun way to test out the Cricut Explore. I chose to participate in this group because I honestly believe the Cricut Explore is a game changer in the world of crafting and, really, who doesn't love a little competition on the side.
