How do you capture summer memories? This summer we decided to make special summer T-Shirts!

Supplies Needed

  • Solid color T-Shirts – my husband and I got white, and Smarty got light blue
  • Fabric markers
  • A stencil. My husband designed a summer logo on the computer and then used our Silhouette Portrait to cut it into a laminated paper.

An Ongoing Project

My husband and I discussed this idea of a summer T-shirt together, but I was still surprised when he worked on this project while Smarty and I were away in Mommy & Me camp. He traced the stenciled letters and added some color to them. Smarty was very excited about the idea of putting all her summer memories on this T-shirt. She immediately added a drawing and writing for Mommy & Me Camp and did a surprisingly good job. She is now planning to add her next favorite experience to it by the end of this week – a Camp Galileo science camp.

I used to make a t-shirt for each mission trip I went on, and then I'd have the other kids on the trip sign it. It was a lot of fun.

Lovely idea! Wish my husband could be as helpful as your! Thank you for sharing it with us #pintorials

Creating your own t-shirts is so much fun, a few years ago my niece and I created a wonderful personalised t-shirt in the Summer holidays with caterpillars and butterflies on.

This year I've just start painting pebbles with her, we are going to add to the collection each Easter.
