They changed the name to "Stars in the City" because they are known as the Stars (St. Teresa's Academy). They also created a really pretty blue top with plaid on the cuffs and a Peter Pan plaid collar.
The Cricut was perfect for their project. I got out the heavy (the red packaging) Heat N' Bond and ironed the plaid to it. The settings for my material were Blade Depth 4, Speed 3, Pressure 4. I did use multi cut 2 x's.
For the stars I found a really pretty yellow ribbon and adhered the Heat N' Bond to that and ran it through the machine at the same settings. I had never used a ribbon to cut out images. We couldn't find the right shade of yellow in fabric and this was awesome. To get the yellow behind the windows I just cut little pieces of the ribbon and slid them under the plaid; ironing them down as I went.
The girls came in 3rd for the popular vote for their outfit and had a great time!

Don't forget that you still have time to enter our challenge this week. Even if you don't have a pet there are so many cute animals to choose from using the Cricut. We'd love to see your work:)
Thanks for stopping by!
