Oh goodness sometimes a sassy fun t-shirt is exactly what you need! My darling friend Melissa has been having fun with hand lettering and in the process created this amazing “I’d wanna be me too” hand lettered file and she was awesome enough to share it with me so I could turn it into a shirt!
I hadn’t heard the song “me too” because it isn’t really the kind of music I listen to but the line “If I was you I’d wanna be me too” keeps making me giggle so the shirt had to be made…and then since Little Miss Lila constantly has people saying they wish they had her wardrobe she had to have one too.
I knew the shirt was a complete success when the older girls all asked for one for themselves!
Do you love it? Do you want to make one (or two or three) for yourself? You’re in luck!!! Melissa has given me permission to share the .svg file so you can make one too!
The process was so simple I had two made in no time at all!
Make your own “I’d wanna be me too” DIY t-shirt:
1. Start by downloading the I’d wanna be me too .svg file here
2. Pick out your t-shirt and vinyl (I used black flocked iron-on vinyl)
3. Using the Cricut Explore upload the file and make sure you’re machine is set to iron-on. Before cutting out check and double check that you have mirrored your image.
4. Once it’s cut out follow the instructions on the package for the application process.
A couple tips for working with flocked iron-on vinyl, make sure you’ve heated up your fabric before laying the iron-on down. Use a thin cloth laid over the plastic layer to really iron the vinyl down. Once you’ve got it stuck on well from the front turn your shirt inside out (or your fabric over) and iron really well from the back side too. Once you have done a whole lot of ironing make sure to let the vinyl cool completely before removing the plastic, take your time removing the plastic to make sure it’s really attached. After the plastic is removed hit the vinyl with the iron both front and back one more time. I am slightly obsessed with the flocked iron-on, I have always had good success with iron-on vinyl but the flocked is my absolute favorite, if you take your time it is attached forever!
Someone loves loves loves her new shirt. I told her we have matching workout shirts now and she thought it was the coolest thing ever! She also was so cute making up own “I’d wanna be me too” song (since she has no idea where the saying came from).
I hope you’ll make your own “I’d wanna be me too” shirt. While the song isn’t exactly what I want my children running around singing I love the message just “I’d wanna be me too” sends. Of all the people in the world you could want to be I will always hope they will want to be themselves because they are perfectly wonderful people and they should love who they are!
Have a wonderful day and enjoy being YOU!
