Word up. It's Wordgirl.

My kids LOVE this show & they wanted Word Girl outfits for Christmas.
I know it's not Christmas, but I finally found time to do this project.
Better late then never!!

They were SUPER easy to make and I'm going to show you how you can make one too.
I bought long sleeve red shirts & pants at Walmart for like $3 or $4 a piece.
Can't remember because it was all the way back in December that I bought them.
The first thing I did was find the word girl design on the Internet and I printed it out in the size I wanted.

Then I ironed on HeatnBond on the back of my yellow fabric.

Next, I traced my design on the back of the fabric, (on the Heatnbond paper) & then cut it out.

After, I took the paper off the back of the design...

And ironed it on the shirt with the shiny side down.

For an extra hold, I stitched all along the outside and inside of my design.

  And there you have it, one Word Girl shirt! But of course I couldn't stop there, Word Girl has a cape too.

  For the cape, I cut out a large rectangular piece of fabric. (I just held it up to my girls and made sure I liked the length.) I hemmed the sides and bottom of the cape to finish the edges.

  Then I folded down the top, making sure there was enough room for my elastic, then I stitched along the top and bottom of my fold.

  Next, I measured the elastic around my girls' necks, cut it and threaded it through the top of the cape.

  Once I got the elastic threaded far enough through, I made sure to zig zag stitch the elastic at one end. After threading it all the way through, I zig zag stitched the other end to keep the elastic secured.

  The last thing I added to the cape were snaps, two to be exact. And that's it, all done!

  Two word girl outfits in one afternoon & two very happy girls!
