DIY Hello Shirt {and Baby A version}

I like Facebook.

Don't we all?

I don't like Facebook ads.

Those annoying ads that stream on the right hand side of my timeline.

But the other day, the ads were actually useful.

I saw a shirt that I kind of knew I needed to own.

It looked like this:

And it belongs to Hello Apparel.

It also costs $28. Plus shipping.

Which is basically a giant NO.

But oh how I wanted the shirt to be a giant YES.

So, what did I do?

I Put a Bird on It.

And I made it myself.

With my Silhouette Cameo and some fabric paint.

I used a shirt I already had.

So the project cost me NOTHING. click me

If the Hello Apparel people come after me, because I copied their shirt, that'd be pretty darn cool.

Because that means I'm cool enough for the Hello Apparel people to come after me, because I copied their shirt.
Although it looks like a "period" the punctuation is in fact a HEART.

And I couldn't resist making a pint size variation for Baby A.

And then you can take the $30+ you saved and go to Buffalo Wild Wings. Twice.
