Handmade Dr. Suess Shirts for $4

I cannot believe the triplets are going to be 2 in a few short weeks. Since their birthday is so close to the holidays I thought I better get started on some of the stuff for the birthday party. I am going with a Cat in The Hat theme this year. Last year I had someone on etsy make them birthday shirts. I looked around online for the Thing 1 and Thing 2 shirts. First problem was that no-one had a thing 3 shirt. Second, I was not going to pay $20 for each shirt.
So here is what I came up with....... and they only cost me $4 each.

So, I went to hobby lobby with my 40% off coupon. I got the red shirts for $2.99 each and used the coupon for the iron on transfer sheets. I ended-up getting the iron-on for about a dollar a sheet. This time I bought the dark transfer sheets. These were slightly harder to use becasue it waws a bit tricky to seperate the 2 sheets. But, a plus is the images do not have to be mirror images.

So, I simply used Microsoft paint to make the white circles with the black outline and add the text. The little "Thing 1 & 2" at the bottom of the tee shirt was some clip art I found online. Printed this all on my ink jet and cut them out.

Peel off backing and iron on.

That was easy.

I am so happy with how these turned out. In fact, I am think of making other themed tee shirts for the triplets.... rock, paper, scissors or how about peanut, butter, and jelly??? Anyone have any other ideas?
I cannot wait to post a pic of them wearing them and post the rest of my budget friendly birthday ideas.
