It’s no secret I love me a good graphic tee! Getting creative and firing up my Cricut makes me so happy. I had the chance to sit down and design six graphics for the latest Project Run and Play collection and boy, was it a blast!
I was designing these graphics as winter was coming to an end and spring was in the air. Dreaming of sunshine and long summer days was the perfect respite for those dreary days. Throw in a pandemic and these sayings and graphics really got me through.
The whole digital design collection is fifteen super fun warm weather themed graphics that work great for the whole family. I can’t wait to grab some of the other designs to make some cute tees for the summer.
My designs are Sun Squad, Beach Bum, Take Me To The Ocean, Life is better at the beach, Good Vibes, and Sunshine and Daydreams. I was going for a real 80’s laid back summer vacation vibe while creating them. I couldn’t help but think back to my youth and the carefree, easy days of summer. Oh, to be a kid during summer break again! No worries or cares in the world…
Fabric for the tees was provided by Raspberry Creek Fabrics. I love their white cotton lycra- it’s not too thick, but it’s opaque and the perfect base for creating. My vinyl was all from my local vinyl shop, Vinyl Outlet, and I used Iron-On Turbo Flex vinyl because I LOVE the colors it came in. Super fun pastels that totally matched my retro vision.
The tee is the Lemon Tee from the Project Watercolor Beach collection. It’s such a great basic unisex tee that is full of fun color blocking options too. I did the banded sleeves for a ringer tee look that really added to the vintage feel of the graphics. I sized up one for my middle daughters for a relaxed fit but the others are true to their measurements. And yes, I made sizes 8, 9, and 10… crazy that they’re years apart but similar in chest sizes!
These shots are some of my favorites of my kiddos! They just epitomize the summer kid life to me and I know I’ll treasure these pics forever!
Thanks for stopping by and letting me share all this cuteness! Hop on over to the Project Run and Play shop and get creating!
