Getting Crafty with Fashion Art Projects from Walmart

When it comes to gifts, I go the DIY route almost every time.  There’s something very personal and meaningful about getting a handmade gift that you just can’t have with something like a dvd or a tie.  I’ve always got room for more crafting supplies around here, and I’ve been in need of some anyway, so when Walmart gave me the opportunity to try out a variety of their Fashion Art Project supplies I jumped at the chance.

I’ve been wanting to give my Grandmother something nice for a while now, she’s such a wonderful lady, and a store bought gift seemed too impersonal.  I decided to use my new supplies to make a backpack to keep her ukulele music in.  My kit came with everything I needed and more. When I was done my husband stenciled a shirt for Judah and we still had enough left for three or four more projects!


Here’s what I got:
-Two packs of iron on letters
-One sheet of iron on rhinestone designs
-One set of stencils (3 sheets, misc. designs)
-One canvas backpack
-One set of fabric patches
-Three pack fabric stencil spray

Now on to my first project.  (Please note that while these are great to do with your kids, use caution when working with the iron!)  I started by cutting out everything I wanted to use and arranging it how I wanted on the backpack.  I also took a picture of the layout so I could use it for reference.

Next I attached my designs.  The iron-ons were very easy.  All I had to do was peel off the backing, place my letters on the fabric, cover with a cloth and apply firm pressure with the iron for 30 seconds.  Then turn inside out and repeat.  That’s it!  Here’s my finished product, my grandma loved it!

Don’t mind the pink spots, I had an accident with the spray paint.  (That’s what I get for not following directions!)

Here’s project #2.  This one was extremely easy, and it’s perfect for kids.  I won’t bore you with my step-by-step here, the pictures are pretty self explanatory.

    Both of these projects are so cool! And they don’t look hard at all. I have been wanting to make my son some shirts like this…now I am inspired to do so.
