Happy 4th of July!!
Okay, I realize that I am a bit late :) We have been out of town, with relatives visiting, and I finished these great t-shirts during a spare moment I had in between trips - so I am just now, barely, sitting down to my computer! (BTW, yes, I am 6 months pregnant in this picture...girl # 3 - here she comes!)
As soon as I saw these 4th of July Tie Dye T-shirts on The Creative Vault blog, I knew I wanted to make them! Click over there for a great tutorial. All you need are white t-shirts, blue and red rit dye, and rubber bands/marbles for the tie-dye part.
And let me tell you - they were a hit! The girls looked so great gallivanting all across Boston in these shirts, and we got quite a few comments. It was really fun for all of us to match :)
Want to see some of the fun things we did??
The Tall Ships were visiting Boston over the 4th of July - and they were such an awesome sight! And I loved taking pictures of my patriotic kiddos.
These shirts were even good for hangin' around by the harbor...
They hid the stains well :) Can't see the pizza sauce and greasy fried dough finger marks, can you?? ;)
If you ever have the chance to be along the Charles River in Boston for the 4th of July fireworks - I hope you do it! We sit on the Cambridge side of the river, and listen to the Boston Pops through the loud speakers - it is spectacular!
I have a feeling the kids will like wearing these shirts through the summer -- they are unique and fun. And really, there are plenty of reasons to be patriotic, even after the 4th!
