DIY Anchor Tees for the 4th of July!
Posted by Devin
Looking for cute shirts for the kiddos this 4th of July? These patriotic anchor tees are SUPER easy and quick to make thanks to my favorite crafting product: Heat N' Bond! (Click here for my last Heat N' Bond craft.)
What You Need:
-t-shirt in red, white or blue (found mine at Walmart for $3.47 each)
-patriotic fabric (very small amount needed, I purchase 12" for 4 shirts at the price of $1.81 and had plenty left over)
-anchor stencil (click here for printable stencil)
-Heat N' Bond (available at most craft and fabric stores)
Step 1. Print and cut out the anchor stencil. Cut off a piece of Heat N' Bond large enough to cover the stencil. Easy!
Step 2. Iron your piece of Heat N' Bond onto the back of your patriotic fabric, paper side up. Follow directions on Heat N' Bond packaging (basically just press and hold over each section for 2 seconds).
Step 3. Trace your stencil onto the Heat N' Bond paper and cut out your anchor.
Step 4. Peel the paper off of the back of the anchor, place it on your t-shirt fabric side-up, and iron on according to Heat N' Bond package directions (just press and hold over each section for 8 seconds).
That's it! I made all 4 shirts for my boys in about an hour (that's WITH them asking me for drinks and snacks and who knows what else every 5 seconds). If you have a sewing machine, you may decide to run a stitch around the edges of the anchors: it will last forever then and look even cuter than it already does! (Note: Mine have been through the washing machine and dryer and they held up great! I do suggest laundering them inside out.)
These 4 boys are ready for the 4th! Happy Independence Day!
