Vegas Baby!-Corn T-shirts

If you are reading this on Monday, then I'm currently trekking cross country (ok via planes but still) back to NC from Las Vegas.  I probably had a wonderful trip.  I'm also probably tired as my flight this morning was at 6 am.

For this trip I decided to put myself in charge of making brightly colored matching t-shirts for myself and the 4 other ladies on this trip.  I used those brightly colored sorority t-shirts I used to see girls wearing to class all the time in college (or that I see L-Fab wearing sometimes now) as my inspiration.  Again the corn thing would make sense if you knew the bachelorette and fiance's real names.  I made Beezus5 wear this on the plane with me (ok well I'm planning on it, we'll see if she does it).

Essentially I made these t-shirts using transfer paper like I did the bridal shower apron.  I did not want to use transfer paper.  I wanted to use a stencil that I so lovingly made and fabric spray paint.  However, that did not really turn out so well.  So I went with my backup plan.

Craft Fail T-shirt #1...Paint splattered and bled through a little.  I'll figure it out at some point.


Craft Success T-shirts #2-7 (I messed up one of these too when I accidentally melted part of the transfer off)


Like my t-shirts?
Been to Vegas?
Does anyone want to buy me one of those $300 screen printer machines and ink so I can make really cool t-shirts?

Why dont you use the millions you won in Vegas to buy a screen printer? You did win millions...right? Or at least hundreds of thousands?

LOVE! And I bet you had a fantabulous time and I also bet that you are exhausted.

When I lived out west, Vegas was an easy drive so I went pretty frequently. I miss it.
