Kids Christmas Snow Man Shirt Tutorial

 
 
 

Hi everyone!
 



I am Kalyn from And I Thought I Loved You Then. I am a 27 year old mother of one amazing daughter Eliza.

I love to blog and craft with her and that is what you will find on my page. I am so thankful Maggie has asked me to share a project with you.





Today I will show you how to make a very simple t shirt for your little guy or gal. I love to make Eliza shirts for the season, I made her a  No Sew Christmas Tree a few weeks ago but wanted something that can last through the winter, not just the holidays, so I decided to make this Snowman! The best part is this cost me less then $10 to make!




 




Supplies: T-shirt, long sleeve for the winters here
Buttons for the eyes
Fabric for the nose and mouth. 99cent fabric squares from Jo’anns are perfect for this, they tend to have lots of different design options to make the fabric a little more fun.
Heat and Bond
Needle and Thread



Start off by washing all of your fabric, you don't want anything to shrink when you wash it in the future.


Take your buttons and lay them out on the shirt to decide how you want the face to look. I wanted it to look off to the side so I put the eyes closer together on one side.

 




Next, time to cut out your shapes for the nose and mouth. I started by applying my heat and bond to you fabric. Make sure you follow the directions for your particular fusing web.





 





I then free handed the shape of the nose. The best way to do this is draw it on the paper of the fusing web once it is on the fabric, that paper will be discarded so no one will see if you too a few times to get the drawing right. Now cut out your nose.


 




I do not do well free handing circles, I could have traced something but to save myself time I threw my fabric on my Provo Craft Cricut machine and let it cut out a bunch of different size circles. I wasn't sure what I would like when it was all laid out together.

 



Now that all of your shapes are cut out, and your buttons laid out, put your face together!

Try the different sizes of the circles to decide what shape is best for you. With Eliza's shirt being a 12month we didn't have much room so I used all small circles.


 



Once I had it laid out the way I wanted I make little marks with my pencil so I knew where it all went, your fabric will be covering the pencil marks so no big deal.

Sew on your button eyes with your needle and thread. Make sure to sew them on tight if you have curious hands like ours!

Now take your nose and mouth fabric and iron them on.


 


 



Tada! Instant Snowman...now wait 1.5 hours for your little one to wake up so they can put on your Snowman shirt and fight smile for the camera!

 


 






I hope you have enjoyed this quick and easy tutorial. Like I said, all together it was less then $10 to make and about 10 minutes to make! Please stop by And I Thought I Loved You Then for more fun craft ideas!

Thank you again Maggie for letting me share my ideas. Feel free to contact me with any questions!!
