Homemade Hoodies!!

Last week our family along with my sisters family spent a week in Disneyland.  I wanted to make something for the kids because it was my nephews first trip to Disneyland and I wanted it to be special.  My sister found this "special paper" that you can print and then cut out and iron on to material.
I used my Cricut Imagine along with the Mickey and Friends and Birthday Bash Imagine cartridges.  I used the fill feature to select the colors that I wanted.  I used black for the silhouette and red for Minnie's bow.  I wanted something a little more girlie for my daughter.  The great thing about this "paper" is you can layer it.  So the possibilities are endless.  You could use any regular cartridge and then fill it in with the imagine cartridges.
I used Birthday Bash for their names.  I did 3 layers on my machine.  The letters were supposed to be red with a yellow and then black shadow.  But for what ever reason the Birthday Bash cartridge added a 4th layer in random colors.  I still like the way that they turned out.  I think that the ears on the first letter of their names was really cute.
Imagine all the stuff you could make using this "paper".  I was so excited that I have already made my daughter another shirt with some pink zebra print trimmed in red.  I plan on putting my kids names on their athletic jerseys...instead of paying too much for someone else to do it!

Thanks for checking it out!  I'll see you soon!
