Everything Is Awesome Teaching Shirt

This year my partner and I are both doing Lego themed classrooms.  We wanted to have a shirt for both of us to wear.

I downloaded a Lego-like font for all the wording.  I layered the white on top of the black shadow layer.

For the Lego head I used some basic shapes in SCAL and adjusted them until I got the look I wanted. I finished off the Lego head with a pink bow and a smiley face.

Teacher Swag Bags

I am the team lead at my school for the first grade team.  I like to start the year off with a little gift for everyone on the team.  Since I purchased my heat press last year I have been doing a team shirt and some goodies to go with it.

This year the design I worked on for our team is this I love 1st grade.

I built my design in SCAL.  The apple is a cut file from Lori Whitlock's website.  I just love the little heart cut out. I used white vinyl for letters and built all the apple pieces out of glitter vinyl. They really pop on the navy t-shirt.

Then I cut everyone's name out in different colors of glitter vinyl to put on the bag.

This was a great way to use up some of the small pieces of vinyl I hoard.

Inside the bag are several goodies.  Including the Teach, Love, Inspire shadow box I share with you in this post.  Some of the other goodies are colored post-its (we only get yellow at school!), some washi tape, snacks,  a big tape gun, and a list pad.  I tied the shirt up with some cute ABC ribbon I had.
