You're Killin Me Smalls

{Sandlot inspired shirt}

It's summertime! And what's more summery than getting out and playing a good old game of baseball, Or at least watching a baseball classic, like The Sandlot. PS, did you know The Sandlot is on Netflix right now!?

Ok friends, be honest, who else had a crush on Benny? The movie is full of fantstically quotable quotes, and one of my favorites is, "You're killin me Smalls!" 

It just had to end end up on a baseball T. Here's how you can make one too.

First off the supply list: (affiliate links)
Iron on vinyl (any color you like)
Blank baseball T

Step 1: Open the Design Space file. You'll notice I already mirrored the whole file, so it's ready to go! (The two fonts I used are "Heidi Swapp" and "Extreme Fonts- Big League")

Step 2: Cut it out. See this post if you need a good tutorial for cutting iron on vinyl.

Step 3: Weed and iron on to your shirt.

You now have the perfect summer shirt that you can wear FOR-EV-ER.

What's your favorite Sandlot quote?

Painted Ice Cream Bowls and 2 Ingredient Ice Cream

Are your kids out of school for the summer yet? We have a few days left, but we've had some unusually warm June weather and we're itching to just be done with school already! Even though we aren't completely routine-free yet, I decided it would still be fun to have them work on a craft project and enjoy a tasty treat too.

Why I Love my Cricut Explore

As you've read my posts over the last couple of years, you know I love my Cricut. It's not the only machine I've ever owned though, so here's my story, and I'll compare a little the Cricut to a Silhouette and a Black Cat Cougar.

My Cricut Story

Back in 2007 I bought my first Cricut machine. It was the original, small size one, and I was so excited! I was doing a lot of scrapbooking back then. I had two small girls, and they both took naps, so nap time was scrap time. I was also making a lot of cards and had a few Cricut cartridges that let me add a lot of cute things to both. Eventually I started using a third-party software to design some of my own cut files.
