Make a spooktacular easy Halloween t-shirt for your child

With Halloween just around the corner, I asked Hamish today what he wanted to go dressed as and he answered that he really wanted a Ghost t-shirt and so with the helping hand of my trusty Cricut maker I whipped him up this cute ghost face shirt in a few minutes.

Doesn’t he look boo- tiful?

How to make your own

You will need: 
  • Plain white t-shirt
  • Black felt
  • Fabric glue
  • Scissors or a Cricut machine
( You can see my guide on how to cut felt on a Cricut maker here)
To make
On the Cricut 
Choose a design from the Design Space App. ( I used the premade design Pumpkin Body Suit which uses the image Scared Pumpkin Face.  These images are approximately 8.25cm x 12.7cm so depending on your shirt size, you may want to enlarge your design before cutting.)
Load the pink mat with your felt.  Add more pressure before cutting and follow the prompts on your machine to cut the design.
With scissors 
Trace or draw pattern pieces onto paper, you could draw these free hand. Pin to your felt and cut out 2 eyes, a triangular nose, and a mouth.
Once you have your pattern pieces cut out, use your fabric glue to glue into place.
Leave for an hour before allowing your child to wear.
Hand wash your t-shirt when dirty.
