Teachers, birthday party planning parents and small children’s theater costume coordinators at some time have experienced the frustration of gathering all the pieces parts for a particular party theme and still be budget friendly DIY kid friendly arts and crafts or accessories inspirations that they can use/wear over and over again.
I know I really do not like running all over town nor do I enjoy mix and matching craft items from 3 or 4 on-line stores.
No Non-cents Nanna has finally come to the rescue on a selection of tee-shirt craft that will last far longer than the birthday cake those annoying paper party blowers. This post will show you how to mix and match a tee-shirt with kids’ favorite accessories.

Every One Can Purchase a Tee-shirt Locally, but….
Sure, there are plenty of party sections at your local discount store or party shop, but…you need affordable materials that are unique are your birthday boy or girl or a little Sunday School skit.
My favorite place for Shipped Wrecked sailor shirts is Dollar Tree for a $1.. But, alas, when I need 7 or 8 size 6 to 8 hunter green shirts they are all sold out at Dollar Tree. You get what you get! But, can you quickly find the size and color you need?
I wanted to make my own animal/ dinosaur Tee-Shirt line for Heart Felt Play Store. But, the cost effectiveness did not meet my criteria. Besides, No Non-cents Nanna is all about allowing the kids to do-it-themselves. Currently we have 8 differnt colors kids size 6 to 8 only, in stock to mix and match with our best sellers.
Prepare to Be Inspired…
OK, I admit to cheating with my old images and being too cheap to make samples for my model Sophie-Do-it to wear.
I would love to see images on what you came up with on No Non-cents Nanna’s Heart Felt Play Store Facebook page.
