Today I have a series of t-shirts for a little guy in the family. I should have done these a couple of weeks/months ago but I'm going with "better late than never". While doing shirts for the new baby, I had to make something for his big sister.
Here are the brother/sister shirts.
The font I used is my favorite for little kid stuff. It is called Kristin. I normally make it a little wider for cutting purposes but it isn't a requirement. You can't tell in this picture but the lettering on the t-shirt is pink on brown. The onesie is cream on brown. I would have liked to use light blue on the brown but I didn't have any handy.
Back to the onesies for the little one. The little one's Dad played/s Lacrosse. So, this seemed fitting.
Of all the shirts, this one gave me the most grief. I didn't have too much trouble finding an SVG of the lacrosse sticks but then I wanted to arc the letters instead of putting them in a straight line. Well, that is easier said than done. I asked over on the SureCutsALot Users board and the wonderful Kim gave me a great recommendation. You create what you want in Word, using Word Art, and then make a jpeg of it and trace it in SCAL. In the end I hand placed the letters on the bottom arc. The top arc I used the path feature.
I have a few shirts in the works for the Wonderkid. They should be a little more fun and the types of shirts other people might want to scraplift (I can't imagine anyone wanting to use these ideas but ...).
Tomorrow, I have some cards I made and some subway art I designed for a birthday. Until then...
