When I saw this I instantly thought about making a T-shirt for my daugther.
I had purchased some scraps from Hobby Lobby - in the 3 varying sizes of Green.
I also used Heat - N bod - Ultra - no sewing iron fusion (which is actually found in the notions section of Joanns and I'm sure other places).
I cut several shamrocks all from Paper Doll Dress up cartridge.
They are cut at  1.25", 1.5", 1.75", 2" 2.25", and 2.5". This was very simple to cut out fabric using the iron on fusion and the cricut expression. 

I added a few cut little shamrocks to the sleeves.

I wanted it to look like a Rainbow - and went from smallest to largest, lightest to darkest color green.
I really tried to get the model to hold still so I could take her photo but she wasn't having it. Hence this photo:

So I figured that I would try this out on someone else and seems to be a little big.. I do think Cricut loves it though (Teeeheee).

I had alot of fun making this cute little t-shirt and hope you enjoy it too.

Happy Scrappin'
