St. Patrick's Day Shirt - Pinch Me Not

Sometimes I can be a last minute type of person, but sometimes that a good thing. Like this 'Pinch Me Not' shirt I made for Widget.
 Because I had a deadline (the kids are celebrating St. Patty's Day today because next week they are off of school for Spring Break) I was able to crank out this shirt within a few hours from start to finish. The idea for this shirt came from the game I played as a little girl...you know the one where you pick petals off a flower one at a time while saying "he loves me, he loves me not..." Get it? Okay, here is what I did:

I started by creating the words and shapes to be cut on my Silhouette machine, being careful to cut the dull side of the iron-on vinyl with a reversed image.
I wasn't sure which design I liked better (3 or 4 'leaf' clover), so I asked my Handsome Hubby and my friend, Mandy, for their opinions. Both liked the 4-leaf clover the best, so that is what I went with.
I followed the directions of the iron-on vinyl, and adhered the words and shapes to a green shirt. Once everything had cooled down, I peeled the plastic sheet off of the glitter vinyl.
And then Widget and I paired her new shirt with a multi-colored skirt. This is the complete outfit she is wearing today, and I'm sure she didn't get pinched ;)
If you would like to make a 'Pinch Me Not' shirt of your own (and have a Silhouette craft cutting machine), I would be happy to share my file with you. Leave a comment below or send me an email and I'd be happy to send the file your way asap :)

Happy St. Patrick's Day!
