recycle bicycle

I got the desire to make another freezer paper shirt. I came up with this idea for a recycle bicycle shirt. Inspired by my husband who recycles old bicycles and turns them into very nice amazing bikes. I tried to incorporate the recycle symbol in the wheels. Retro loves the shirt so that makes my day. I hope the desire lasts long enough to make Berk one and maybe a few other designs. We'll see.....that crafty bug seems to come and go around here.

I love it. You'll have to let me know what the Crafty Bug looks like, so when it enters my home I can smash it. Just Kidding. I don't think it ever comes to my house.

Hey sis! Great idear!! But what is a freezer paper shirt?

its when you draw a design and trace it onto freezer paper then cut it out with an exacto knife. Then take the out line and iron it onto a shirt. The wax on the freezer paper bonds to the shirt. Then paint over it. When it is dry, you can pull off the freezer paper. Pretty fun! I hope that makes sense. If not I can show you sometime. You could make some cute shirts for your little boys.
