I can’t believe that December is almost here! Here’s a sweet and easy Christmas outfit…..
….the result of a fun collaboration with Keren from Free Pretty Things for You! Keren has the sweetest vintage artwork and images on her website as well as some fun DIY tutorials! I love seeing what other people have done with the images she has offered as downloads too…so many ideas!
This outfit is super easy to make because you can take an existing t-shirt and a pair of pants and embellish them with minimal sewing! A great way to make coordinated, inexpensive outfits for Christmas card photos!
To make the shirt:
I trimmed around the image as in my other transfer tutorials and ironed it onto the t-shirt. If you are using a dark colored shirt you can transfer the image to a light colored piece of fabric and applique it to the shirt instead:
First, I started with a plain pair of pants that would coordinate with the top and reindeer images. I made this particular pair for Boo but any store bought pair of knit pants, jeans or even a skirt will do!
I cut the reindeer repeat into small strips and cut the white knit (you could use regular white woven fabric as well) into long strips slightly wider than the images and long enough to wrap around a pant leg. Then I ironed the images onto the fabric:
My finished strips of reindeer:
Is it too early to put up my Christmas tree? I put it up pretty early last year!
