As Seen on {Craftaholics Anonymous} - DIY T-Shirt Applique Tutorial

The first post I remember reading from Linda at Craftaholics Anonymous was “You know you’re a craftaholic when…” Seriously. hilarious. Ok, maybe it's only funny if you’re a crafty DIYer who frequents Michael’s/Joann’s/Hobby Lobby/The Dollar Store more than the grocery store, always has a 40% off coupon in her wallet, saves every piece of scrap paper/fabric/ribbon/cardboard/soup can to use for something (even though we don’t know what yet), has way too many “I’m SO going to make that” ideas on her To-Do list than there is time in a day…yeah, you get the point...

Anyway, I showed Linda the flower headbands I made for Baby Erin and was SO thrilled when she asked me to guest post over at her blog. Hop on over to Craftaholics Anonymous to get my tutorial for a Chicago/Illinois state silhouette appliqué t-shirt I made for a boy's birthday gift. And a matching onesie for his sibling in momma's belly J 
I love how the colors in the onesie match our flag. I got the shot of Navy Pier while aboard the Odyssey.
Elliott had his birthday party at Michael's with a Chicago style lunch (hot dogs mMMmM). How could I say no!? Mia had the most fun at the finger painting station. It was her first encounter with paints and she mostly used a popsicle stick and spoon as paintbrushes haha. She worked quietly for a good amount of time focusing on her artwork. That's my girl!
Thanks for having us Jocelyn! And this weekend I'll be photographing my friend's newborn baby girl! Stay tuned!

I LOVE these shirts!! And I wish I was in Chicago - it's my kind of town. Seriously, though, I love Chicago and would love to get to visit there for more than a weekend.

So cute! I really want to try finger paints with Sydney, but she STILL puts everything in her mouth, so I'm afraid she would just eat it! LOL!
