I love Mummy t-shirt with your child's drawings and learn how to seal the transfer so it does not wash off

Below is a T-shirt I designed using my little girls drawings and adding the words I love Mummy. When we went out with our friends a few weeks back she saw a t-shirt with I love Mummy on it and wanted one to wear for Mother's Day. Well if you have been reading my blogs you will know I am just a little bit jinxed, so instead of buying one I decided to make one. And I have to admit I am happy with the result as it is more personal with your own child's drawings.



You can pick up cheap t-shirts from any Supermarket. Usually three for £3, which works out at just a £1 per t-shirt. Only problem is they come in different colours and of course you need white ones for T-shirt designs.
The t-shirt transfer is also fairly reasonable from Supermarkets at £2.50 for a pack of five A4 sheets.  The only problem I have is the Ink Cartridges are so expensive and just do not last. So any help and advice on that would be useful. I have come up with an amazing sealant for T-shirt transfers to stop them washing off. But I am still in the process of testing it, so will revert back to my blog with the update later this week.

A good tip for for creating professional looking t-shirts is to not iron on the transfer as an A4 sheet. But to cut the design out and place it on the t-shirt and then iron it on. It looks far more professional! And you can even outline it with a fabric pen which looks even better. I hope to have an update on the iron on t-shirt sealant shortly so stay tuned.

Mummy and me child's picture and handmade card Happy Mother's day for Mothering Sunday

To all the Mummies in the world "HAPPY MOTHERING SUNDAY!"



I hope you are all are having a wonderful Mothering Sunday. On Friday my little girl cried her eyes out because her friend spoilt the surprise of the handmade Mother's Day card by accident "it's a boy thing, te he."
She made the gorgeous card at school with cut out paper flowers and chocolates. I just adore the picture she drew of us called "Mummy and me!" I feel some of her art has that Picasso feel. I love the swirls she has used for the hair and skirt. Stunning! This is a drawing to treasure forever and one I will scrapbook. It reminds me of the photo my Dad took of us when she was just a couple of months old. I don't look as glamorous as this drawing. I guess every Mummy is a Princess in their child's eyes!

I got some lovely Mummy presents. The scented candle Twinkle Twinkle, Mum's Mug with lovely words, a money box and cactus. She also brought me a very special pen with Sharon on it, which I adore. Sharon A kind and patient person. Maybe the name Sharon is not so bad after all. Just my luck the Essex Girls are now a programme on TV, ha ha. I wonder if they have the Sharon and Tracey jokes on their? I have to admit back in the eighties I did wear white high heals and danced around my handbag. But worse than that is yet to come ...

Well Mummies do you want a giggle? This Mummy was a teenager in the days of Boy George. I even had a friend called George who looked just like him. He dated Paul McCartney's daughter before going out with one of my best friends, I lived in Hastings back then. Here is Mummy in the days before Mummy-hood. The photo's she wanted to hide from the world and especially from her child, as lets face it how am I going to say "you are not going out looking like that!" When she has evidence of me looking like this:


My excuse was, well it was the 80's. And back then my face was my canvas and I used to make my own wild clothes too. Leave me a message on my blog, if you would like to see some photos. Let's face it I was different!
