Adorable Christmas outfit

I'm linking to the Shabby Nest's Frugal Friday Holiday Linky Party to show the shirt I made for Alabama using my Cricut and freezer paper!

I bought these adorable red and white pants from a Just Ducky Originals party that I attended. They were much more than I would normally spend on pants for her, but I've really wanted some ruffle pants for a while and you feel bad if you go and don't buy anything! So, I only bought the pants and decided I could make some cute shirts to go with them. They are still fitting her very good so hopefully I can make one for Valentine's Day, too!
I've seen this idea so many places including The Shabby Nest and City Grace. I was so excited to try it but I couldn't find freezer paper anywhere! I finally found some that my mother in law had and grabbed a little of it! (I saw tonight that they now carry it at Bi-Lo in Thomson so I bought a whole roll for my self!)
The only thing I did a little differently from the other posts was that I used the Cricut to cut out the freezer paper! It's much more precise and quicker that the exacto knife. (At least when I'm the one using the knife! ha) I chose this cute Christmas tree and cut it out and ironed it on the shirt. I grabbed a plate and some fabric paint and a stencil brush and got to work. Since I was painting white paint over a red shirt, I had to do about 3-4 layers of paint. When it finally was dry,I peeled off the freezer paper and was left with a cute tree for the most precious Christmas outfit ever!

I love how it turned out and the shirt was only $5 and the paint was $.97 so it was a great way to get a custom look with only a little bit of money!


  1. so cute! i love that girly tree! if i only had a life would be some much easier! ;-)...and by the way..if you need more, i can make you some ruffle pants for a reasonable price..i hate paying so much for cute kid clothes too!
