Jesus loves me T-shirt

Thursday, July 22, 2010

Remember when my friend and I had too much fun using bleach on T-shirts? Well, she finally was able to buy a new cutting mat for the Cricut she's borrowing. So I made some letter cut outs at her house and took them home to try out the bleach fun again. This is what I made. 

This is a child's size T-shirt {from the same pack my friend bought from Walmart a few weeks ago}
I put a little bit of glue stick on the back of each letter and dot. Then got a round pizza pan and shoved it inside the shirt to keep the bleach from soaking to the back.  

.. I decided to tuck the rest of the shirt under itself so I wouldn't spray more areas than I wanted.

Then I sprayed away. I kind of sprayed a little too much, but I think it turned out pretty cute anyways. 

"Jesus" turned out the best! {wink} 
The rest of the paper cut outs kind of got a little too wet and soaked through.. especially the dots. 

I'd kind of like to cut off the sleeves and scrunch up the shoulders and tie them with some leftover pieces from the sleeve material.  {obviously for a little girl}

I was a little disappointed in how some of the letters ended up, but now I don't think it looks too bad. 

Mark 10:13-16
"And they brought young children to Him, that He should touch them: and his disciples rebuked those that brought them. But when Jesus saw it, He was much displeased, and said unto them, Suffer the little children to come unto me, and forbid them not: for of such is the kingdom of God. Verily I say unto you, Whosoever shall not receive the kingdom of God like a child, he shall not enter therein. And He took them up in His arms, put His hands upon them, and blessed them."

Jesus loves me this I know!

That is a cool idea! I'll have to share it with a friend who sometimes heads up a craft at our ladies' retreat. Yours turned out really nice!

Next time, try putting freezer paper on the cricut mat instead of regular paper, then ironing on those letters onto the shirt. That way you do not have to use glue to hold the letters in place :) Here is a tutorial I found:
