The Dr. Seuss last minute project


  At about 10:00 P.M. an idea came to me. Why it took so long I have no idea. Anyway, I had a plain t-shirt and thought I would stencil a Dr. Seuss saying. But I have no stencils and it was late so making them would be a drag. So next best thing…tracing! I grabbed Fox in Socks and after finally understanding what I could use a light table for, I nixed the idea of tracing a page out of the book and opted for the cover instead. I used fabric markers and traced the outline and wording of the cover first. Then filled in with the markers. Once finished I hung it on a hanger to dry. My little boy was so excited to see his new shirt. I was happy to see him smile.



The Beginning

Welcome to my first post. Chances are no one will see this first post but I have to start somewhere. I am Laura J. and I love to make pretty things. I will be sharing some of my creations along with pins and other things I find interesting. You can follow my pins on Pinterest under creationsbylj.

Tomorrow is Cat in the Hat day for my son’s school. I had grand plans to make a tee-shirt and a hat for the special day but my tummy had other plans. Oh well. I’m going to try to come up with something. I will post the end result tomorrow.
