Spirit Day! Go Warriors!

The kids had spirit day today at school. This is the first time the school has done something like this and I think it was a big success. They usually wear strict uniforms that get boring and old. So this was a fun change for all of them. The school did not have spirit shirts so the kids were told they could make them. Well, you know what that means. I love to create...and create I did. Josh thinks I went overboard. I think they are just right. Here they are all spirited up. The front of Elisabeth's shirt says "I heart recess at ACA". The "at" is in BLING. The other letters I made out of fabric and I appliqued them on. (actually the I heart recess was already there I added the at ACA part) I couldn't ressist the the opportunity for her to wear rain boots and polka dot sox. This Mommy is cuckoo for little girl stuff.
The back says "WARRIORS" going down and "Annapolis rocks" in BLING going across.
Hogan's shirt says "annapolis" going down and "warriors" going across. Boy shirts aren't near as fun. They have to be too cool. His shirt was so hard because I didn't want it to be dorky for a boy.
Sweet Gates. Well his was an after thought. Bad 'ol mommy. The pre-K kids don't wear uniforms so he jumped at the opportunity to wear a uniform shirt. He was so happy.

Girl, those are AWESOME!!!! I am really loving Elisabeth's bling! How awesome! :o) WTG Mommy! Makes me wanna go make some cute bling shirts! hehe!

And seriously, Gate's smile is just too stinkin' cute!

PS: I used to always think of Robyn hood and Little John when I'd say Little Jon too! I wanna watch the cartoon and see how he reacts when he hears 'his' name. ;o)

I am so impressed! I LOVE both shirts! (I know what you mean about the boy shirts not being nearly as fun to make, but you did SUCH an awesome job making a cool-looking boy shirt!)

Thanks for the inspiration!

PS--the rain boots with polka dot socks are adorable, too!

What a crafty lady you are! I love projects like that too. YOu did a great job. And I hope one day I will have a little girl to get girly with because those polka dots and bling are just precious.
