T-shirts

IMG_5944
I love all of my colorful t-shirts but I wanted to make them a little more fun by adding some words.
Step 1- find random words in a pile of iron on letters

Step 2- iron, iron, iron

Step 3- have your cat put his stinky butt on everything
Untitled-1
Step 4- all done!
My favorite is the "Pootles" shirt. It's a silly nickname my brother gave me =)

wallflower said...

Interesting. They are nice.
I can't believe you would expose something so personal though; that you like hugs? That is crazy.

tywo said...

Fun!
I love the blue one!

LOVE!

Lulu said...

that is so amazing! i love the Hugs one =] what a beautiful, colorful collection of fun!

Mariel Torres said...

I like the 'I like hugs' and the picture of you is so sweet!

AllTheBS said...

I also like hugs!

Lavender Playground said...

Love your color t-shirts, and the words add that special extra touch.

konner said...

In the first picture, the I Like Hugs shirt is folded and I was like, DOES THAT SAY 'I LIKE SOUP'?

Do you like soup?

wood & wool stool said...

Love your new shirts!
Want one. Tomorrow I will try to find some L E T T E R S, so tonight I can figure out whatever the text will be :)

Danielle (elleinadspir) said...

Love them!!!! I think you should sell them....as a mystery though. We tell you our size and send $ and you send us whatever sentiment you want to. Wouldn't that be fun?

anne elise said...

I have so many solid colored t-shirts-- what a great idea.

Where did the letters come from?

and "I love hugs" is my favorite (although I love the person who thought it said "I love soup". I definitely don't like soup).

@Konner haha! I do like soup. Maybe I'll make an I love soup shirt as well ;)

@Danielle- That is such a fun idea! I definitely want to start selling things. I just need to get more organized and start setting everything up!

@anne elise- I just found the letters at a little art store around here.

Dear Katie,

I love iron on stickers too! Mine are flowers and cartoon characters though. But where did you buy your colorful plain t-shirts with affordable price?;D

colormekatie said...

@ Emily- I bought them at a store called Rainbow. They sell colorful t-shirts for only $5!

Melissa said...

I need to get some of those iron-on letters, I need a new wardrobe for this fall when I go to college an some word shirts would be excellent. :)

I'm not from U.S and I'd like to know how to get these lovely letters or how can I do it myself?

Sagar said...

The t-shirt industry is ever so competitive and offering its buyers a vast variety of designs, fabrics and styles of t-shirts to beat the cut throat competition. Cool T-Shirts

Alisa said...

Interesting. They are nice.
I can't believe you would expose something so personal though; that you like hugs? That is crazy.
