Pi = Pie t-shirt made using Cricut Iron On Vinyl.

Hello, friends!

Today's iron on tee is made for my brother, Nevada, who is currently finishing up his engineering degree. I gave him lots of choices in images for his t-shirt and he wanted the symbol for Pi. This image is located on the Brooklyn Iron-On cartridge (on sale this week).

I kind of felt Pi all by itself would have made for a very boring t-shirt. Instead I wanted to add some whimsey by adding the slice of pie. This cut can be found on the From My Kitchen cartridge. To find the perfect equal sign I did a simple search in the Cricut Craft Room.  The ones I ended up choosing was from Something To Celebrate.

The problem with making these tees is once your family realizes you can make them they start lining up. I now have my dad and baby brother putting in orders. Back to the craft room I go ;-)

I am getting the tutorial together. Look for it on the blog next week!

Another great t-shirt. Wait until your brother tells his buddies. They are going to ask him where he got that cool shirt. You'll have the whole school lined up. You'll need to buy your shirts in bulk!
LOL Thanks for a chance to win,

Wish Cricut and iron vinyl were around when my kids were in school. I made many Pi day t-shirts back then the old fashoined way! Not nearly as nice looking as your brothers shirt!
