Standing at the front door, pigtails pulled tight, brand new tennis shoes, and that “anxious about the first day of school” look is a photo op that just can’t be missed! Our oldest starts kindergarten this year and her little sister will be in tow for half days in the toddler program. Elle wore a shirt with her name on it for her first day of preschool last year and I thought I’d continue that tradition, so I spent a couple days considering various appliqué and embroidery designs for the shirts. When this idea came to me, I laughed out loud at the thought of how stinkin’ cute the two of them would be standing hand-in-hand wearing these T-shirts I made for them.
I’ve never done iron-ons before & was surprised at how easy it is! I picked up a pack of the iron-on paper you can run through your ink-jet printer (I got the one designed for dark fabrics so that it would look like an actual sticker on the shirt) at Jo-Anns, designed the “Hello my name is” label in Illustrator, and then just followed the instructions for printing and ironing it on to the Ts.
Think my girls will let me get away with antics like this every year for the first day of school?
