DIY “like a girl” T-shirt and bracelet.
Have you all seen the new video on YouTube by Always called “Like a Girl”? I just love it. If you haven’t seen it yet, I have it shared below for you to watch. The idea is to change the way we think when someone says “like a girl”. So when someone says: “You run like a girl” it’s not a negative comment, it’s a positive comment, because girls are awesome! I think it’s such a great commercial. To go along with this idea, I thought it would be fun to make some #likeAGirl t-shirts because I loved it so much.

I sure hope this sweet girl of mine grows up with confidence knowing that she can do anything well that she puts her mind to. And when someone says she does something “like a girl” she will look at them and say, “you’re right…because I AM a girl!”
We used the Cricut Explore to cut out the lettering for these t-shirts. Black iron-on material worked great for this project.
We also made #likeAGirl bracelets too to go with the t-shirts.
Using a thick clear plastic, we cut out the lettering.
The Cricut Explore cut both the plastic sheets and the black iron-on material great! With just a turn of the dial on the machine, you can tell it to cut what ever medium you are working with.
To make the bracelets, I colored the plastic words with a black sharpie and layered another clear word on top. With basic jewelry making tools, I added beads onto a stretchy cord and finished off both ends with a crimp bead to hold them in place. I love stretchy bracelets for easy on and off.
I love my shirt too! This shirt is just a basic grey v-neck tee from Target, but it’s fun to add a little something to personalize it. It will probably be my go to t-shirt for a while.
