Earth Day Blog Hop - Day One


Welcome to Create It- Green's Earth Day Blog Hop!! Thanks so much for joining us!

If you are following along you should have arrived here via the very creative Jennifer.

Is her project today just about the cutest !! love it!

If you just happened upon this blog and didn't realize a blog hop was taking place, please go back to Create It Green and start the hop.

You won't want to miss all the Earth Day inspiration or the amazing prizes from our generous sponsors! Make sure you leave a comment on each blog on the hop since winners will be drawn from the comments!!

Today's project I would like to share with you is a child's hat created from 3 t-shirts that were destined for my Husbands rag bin.
Also a very simple way to gussy up a child's T-shirt and help get the message out, to help protect our environment.

After all, isn't this all about saving the Earth and her many resources for future generations!
You will find the pattern and simple instruction here for the infant hat provided by Prudent Baby.

I did end up creating my own pattern from a smaller hat that was very similar in style to the one in the link. I needed to enlarge it to fit my lovely granddaughter's head.
Follow the instructions for putting this hat together in the link provided.

Found a tutorial here by "Material Magic by Shar" for the adorable flower for the top of the hat.

Turning it upside down and sewing it on.

Coloring this cute "Earth Day" Graphic generously provided by "Meljen's Delights" and transferred it onto Iron on Transfer Paper and applied the image to my hat.

For her T-shirt I used this sweet "Save Our Trees"digital image provided by another generous sponsor "Digital Delights".

Colored it scanned it into my computer,then again printing onto Iron on Transfer Paper.

Easy and fun way to get the message out there!!

After all one is never to young to be taught to appreciate the environment and resources that surround us!

Stop back by on Sunday Day Four of our Earth Day Blog Hop.
I will have another project to share with you
This blog hop will run from today, April 22ND until Sunday, April 26TH, midnight PST. We will be drawing for winners on April 27TH.

Follow along in our blog hop! your next stop will be one creative and earth friendly lady Ali !

EDITED/ I apologize to everyone , but due to family matters out of state I will be unable to continue with the hop.

Thank you all for your generous comments on my projects and my Grandaughter.

Have fun with the hop and good luck to you all on the wonderful prizes donated by our sponsers!
