Blogging From A to Z - 2018 - T is for


Welcome to the letter T in the A to Z Challenge for 2018.  For this year I decided to make my way through the alphabet at Michaels Arts and Crafts store.  T has to be for T-shirts.

All sizes and colors, T-shirts is one of the more popular items at Michaels because you can do a lot of things with them.  Remember all the Iron-Ons there were in the letter I?  I didn't mention T-shirts then because I knew it was going to be my letter T.



They have sales on T-shirts a lot.  You can see here they are 3 for $10.  Sometimes they go as low as $2.  That is pretty cheap and they are of good quality too.




In addition to the iron ons, one of the things you can do with T-shirts is tie dye them.  



They even have kits to have a tie dye party.  That would make a fun thing for a kids birthday or family picnic.


They also have fabric paints so you can write or draw your own embellishments.




How cute are these appliques?  I love the panda and the owl. 





We can't forget the Be-Dazzler!  Gotta get the bling on those T-shirts too.



Shorter post today after Saturday's Scrapbooking.  Thought I'd give you a little break.  Have you tie-dyed or decorated T-shirts?  Use fabric paint?  Bling out?  I wanna know.

Now go check some of the other T blogs and come back tomorrow for the letter U.



(Note:  I decided I should add a disclaimer to these posts because I certainly don't want to give the idea that I am being paid by Michaels to do this or that they are furnishing me with material.  All pictures used in this blog series were taken by me at local Michaels stores, or are my personal pictures and every Michaels store may not have everything shown.)

  1. What's the biggest size T-shirt you can get at Michaels?

  2. Adult 3XL in some colors. Not always in stores but may have them online. Sprucing up your wardrobe? Gonna tie dye?

  3. Truthfully I only wear T-shirts as workout clothing, and then perhaps move them into the clothes-to-use-for-house-painting-etc pile - so I don't have much need to bling them up or decorate. I have used fabric dye though. I bet a tie-dye party would be fun, if messy. I'm laughing at myself, because I first typed it tye-die. That might not be so much fun.

    1. I'm with you, Deborah. Sometimes the neck holes are too narrow for me and I feel like I'm getting choked so the first thing I do is start cutting the ribbing there. I have a problem with tye die too at times!

  4. Printed T-shirts used to be just about all I ever wore back in the eighties when I worked on the road. Now I very rarely wear them other than at home.

    1. I have just a few T-shirts because I don't like the crew neck. Most of the ones I have are from concerts.

  5. Long before things like fabric pens were readily available here in the UK, about 30 years ago now, I hand-painted T-shirts with acrylic paint. They're quite colour fast and probably lots cheaper than most other options but do require hand laundering in cold water.

    1. That's interesting Colette. I wouldn't have thought of acrylic but you're right!

  6. What a place! I want to walk up and down all those aisles and look at all the pretty things - I think I'd buy the T shirts just because they're cheap and colourful!

    1. Leanne, you could get lost for hours in the store. That's why usually when I go I just go for certain things. I didn't know half this stuff was in the store until I started working there!
