Acck, I realized I forgot to post this Little Tees necklace I made before the release! (although if you checked out our release party thread you may have seen it there) The ringer and "super" "mom" are stamped on white Poly Shrink (be sure to use Staz-on or other permanent ink to prevent smearing) I carefully cut it out and used my Cropodile to make the hole for my jump ring in the corner (the larger hole, remember it shrinks up!) To shrink the tee, place it on a plate or self healing mat and hold in place with a tool like a piercer to embossing tool in the hole. Once you turn on the heat gun it will start to move around/curl but if you keep heating it will eventually flatten out. The arms tend to want to flip over, if they do this you can press then back down and then continue heating. Sometimes it helps while its still warm to press an acrylic block or other flat surface on top of it to get it nice and flat. After I was done heating, I accented the tee with the few pink self adhesive rhinestones, put my jump ring through and threaded it on to this simple ball chain I got at Hobby Lobby for less than 2 bucks. The finished charm is about an inch. Isn't that fun? I plan to make these "super mom" charms for a few friends. (I also wore it myself the other day*, hoping if I wore it, I might just act like one!!)
When I have time, I'd also like to make a mix of t-shirts charms in different styles and colors with different sayings to make a little charm bracelet (colored pencils are a nice way to add color to the Polyshrink) Fun for a little girl OR a big girl(like you or me)! ;) I'm also going to make one to add to a keyring...and maybe a few other projects, too, why stop there?
Have a great day, thanks for stopping by!
* I did got some compliments on it actually, looks really cute and casual with, you guessed it, jeans and a tee! :)
