My husband is very difficult to shop for. He either wants something electronic and expensive, or is completely content and makes no requests. This year he wanted half of his Christmas money to go toward buying a tablet later on, and the only suggestion he made for what I do with the other half was a water bottle. Whoop-de-do… that’s my idea of exciting, I bet it’s yours too, right? Well, about a week or so before Christmas he and I were browsing through Etsy and saw several t-shirts that he thought were awesome. Too late for me to order any, plus they were more than I could justify spending. But not too late for me to make something!
He loves this one. Sorry to those of you vegetarian and vegans out there. But I’m guessing from this post, you already know we’re pretty big meat eaters around here (it’s in my blood—my grandpa was a cattle and pig farmer in addition to lots of other crops).
This one was inspired by a shirt I saw online way early in the Christmas season, but they were sold out and didn’t have an expected date of having more. I used my silhouette for designing all of them, then cut the images out of freezer paper (I LOVE this stuff!!!) and followed Sheri’s tutorial from I am Momma, Hear Me Roar.
The fork shirt ended up being his favorite. He liked the subtle contrast. He’s a t-shirt lover, but very particular, so I’d say I did pretty well. The shirts were on sale at Target for $4 each, and the freezer paper cost $8 but will last me FOREVER. I found it at my grocer store, but Sheri also suggests Walmart. Target doesn’t have the stuff. I also had the paint on hand, so this became a really inexpensive way to give Nolan three gifts! And it makes me so proud when I see him wearing them.
Thanks for stopping by!
