How to Make Your Own Team Jersey - Simple DIY

Hello there our creative friends! It's time for the fall soccer season to start here in Utah. If your child is participating in sports or you want to create a team shirt of your own, we know the most simple way to do it. All you need is a shirt, iron, and athletic iron-ons!

If you want small numbers on the front of your shirt, we have those.

If you want large numbers for the back of your shirt, we have those too.

If you want to spell something out on your shirt... you guessed it! We have that too. In fact, we have lot's of sizes of athletic letters, depending on your project.

This awesome video walks you right through how to make a team shirt. Check it out!

Easy, right? Yes! So, go get your iron, some iron-ons, and make something awesome. It doesn't have to be a shirt. Think of all the things you can personalize.

Just a note here, some of our iron-ons have a paper backing like the one above. Others have a plastic film on the back. So, make sure to follow the directions on the back of the package. Happy crafting!

Tumble Dye Craft Ideas - Craft & Fabric Dye

There are so many things you can do with our SEI's Tumble Dye, parties, paper-crafting projects and more! Two of our most favorite things to do are fashion and home decor projects. So, today we thought it would be fun to share some of our favorite projects with you.

1. Baby Onesie - This adorable baby is sporting a custom team onesie. If you want to make one for your team, go check out Karen's instructions here.
2. Wooden Bracelets - Complete the look with a unique bracelet! We have instructions for you on making these too.
3. Batik Scarf - Special thanks to Melanie for the tutorial on how to create this look.
4. Lace Shirt - We used a piece of lace as a stencil here. Check out the full blog post for more t-shirt ideas.

1. Stencil Pillows - The only limit to these is your imagination! Here's the tutorial link.
2. Embroidery Hoop Art - There are several ideas for this on our blog. But, we picked this one by Amy because it's about time to start making some fall decorations.
3. Home Decor - Piali created some amazing things with Tumble Dye while on our Design Team. Here are her instructions for this gem.
4. Snow-cone Pillow - Nikki really outdid herself on this one! It's so perfect for this time of year. See this and what she did with the sheets here.

DIY Watermelon Projects Using Dye

Do you ever pin a project you are dying to do and similar ideas just keep popping up? Then, you're like, wow, I seriously NEEED to do this! I'm so excited! But, you get busy working on a website and next thing you know the summer is half over... Ok, you get the idea.

We've been pinning these watermelon project ideas FOREVER. We are so excited to try something similar with our Tumble Dye. But, it just hasn't happened. So, which idea is your favorite? Maybe we will finally get one done!

1. Watermelon Shorts - These shorts from Vanessa at DIY & Crafts look super simple to make. They would be even more simple with our Tumble Dye because there is no mixing!
2. Watermelon Bag - We love this tutorial by Madame Citron! If you don't speak French, just Google translate it and you'll get the idea. Once again, this would be more simple with Tumble Dye.
3. Watermelon Card - Use watercolor paper for this idea from Splitcoast Stampers.
4. Watermelon Skirt - Wow! We saw an adult-size skirt on-line that was lovely. But, this little girl size is too cute! Check out the great tutorial by Laura from Little Button Diaries. You wouldn't need the warm water & salt combo listed if you use our dyes.
5. Watermelon Potholder - A Beautiful Mess is such a great blog with fun projects and great photography. If you you've never pursued their projects, you're missing out! Their potholder tutorial is great. But, if you don't happen to have that fabric, you can make you own using white fabric and you guessed it, Tumble Dye!
6. Watermelon Beach Towel - How fun would this be to do with the kiddos?! We love how they involved the whole family with this idea from Katey at Having Fun at Home.
7. Watermelon Shoes - Our dyes work great on these canvas shoes. But, if you want the look and aren't up for a DIY, you can always buy these from Ms. Hey's Etsy shop. ;)
8. Mini Watermelon Bags - Amy from Delineate Your Dwelling used acrylic paint for these little cuties. But, did you know you can screw off the lid on our tumble dyes and dip a paintbrush right in the bottle? You sure can!

Ok, are you convinced that need to make one of these cute watermelon projects? We are! Tumble Dye is the perfect pair because they are water-based, non-toxic dyes made right here in the US. Just shake the bottle and you're ready to go - NO MIXING! Happy crafting!
