How many of you have like, half a million really cute or super cool projects or yummy recipes pinned on Pinterest, just sitting there on your boards looking good? Yeah, me too.

So, I thought I'd try to make it a point to start completing some of those projects (I tend to actually make a lot of the recipes... the ones containing ridiculous amounts of sugar at least) to share with you here. You know, accountability or whatever.

This is actually a shirt that I originally saw featured on another blog, The Little Things We Do. The shirt is from Etsy here and on Pinterest here. Super cute, but at 22 bucks, a little rich for my blood. Funnily enough, Jordan's the one who pointed out how easily I could just make it myself. I was pretty much resigned to the fact that Adelaide would not be getting that shirt once I saw the price. But duh, make it! And since I did it myself, I was actually able to customize it with Adelaide's name and a number 2 on the back.

I got the baseball tee on Amazon. Obviously. I actually found my options to be pretty limited when it came to toddler sized baseball tees. And since I pretty much refuse to ever pay for shipping, Amazon was the way to go. 

For the letters, I decided to try out the Cricut iron on stuff (yep, go to amazon and type in "Cricut iron on stuff" ;) which I'd never tried before. If you have a Cricut machine (and I assume Silhouette has something similar as well) that is the way to go for sure! With that stuff I was able to make 3 different sizes of letters, and I wasn't at all limited by how many of a particular letter was included like you are with the prepackaged ones. (Adelaide's name + "dos" probably would've required 2 packages of iron on letters thanks to all of the D's.) And the best part, I still have some leftover for another project (though there's not nearly as much on a roll as the packaging would lead you to believe). I bought mine at Michael's, but it's cheaper on Amazon, so I would definitely suggest checking there first. I was feeling particularly impatient that day and as a result, didn't check Amazon first :( Next time I order this stuff, it will be from Amazon!

So, just cut out whatever letters you need and follow the instructions on the package to apply them to the shirt, and voila! Adorable shirt for less than 22 bucks and customized with a name and number on the back and iron on stuff leftover for the next project :)

I can't wait for Adelaide's birthday to come around so she wear it with the cute glittery skirt we found!

*Side Notes: I snagged the shirt for $10.80, but it's now listed for $15, so you might wanna watch the price for a few days if you're interested. 

P.S. Sorry the pics don't look great. For some reason they aren't uploading with the edits I did in the Pictures app. Have I mentioned the new Pictures app has nothing on iPhoto? As in, it sucks and iPhoto didn't. Boo!

P.P.S. You guys, it's September tomorrow! TOMORROW! Time to break out the Fall decorations. Katie, you with me??
