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. I never thought about picking up T shirts at Michaels, but what deals! I’ll have to check them out.

  2. I was just talking about this with my husband this weekend. We were attending an event that had T-shirts for sale with really interesting artwork on them. The only problem was that they were mostly crew neck (which I dislike) and the sleeves were too short (I prefer elbow-length). I was wondering if T-shirts with other necklines (scoop, v-neck, boat neck) and longer sleeves were available in bulk. Why do most shirts come only in men’s styling? Anyway, your post reminded me of that conversation.

      It was only when I started working there that I found out Michaels has the V-neck style, though in limited quantity and colors. I don’t like crew neck either, makes me feel like I’m choking.

  3. We’ve done a lot of tie-dyed shirts in our day and many of them came from Michael’s. Weekends In Maine

    I used to do a lot of fabric painting. I used the liquid embroidery paints to do the iron on patterns onto dish towels. I also painted a T-shirt and added some embellishments. Then after wearing & washing it, I hung it on the outdoor clothesline to dry…and somebody stole it! I never saw it again, and sure wish I still had it.

    We did a lot of that when the kids were younger — fabric paint and iron-ons.

      I’m really fussy about T-shirts because I don’t like them if the neck hole is too small. I did find out that Michaels carries the V-neck style but they are usually more expensive.
