Balderdash by Paisley Roots

Today I’m excited to introduce Karly from Paisley Roots. Yep, she was another amazing contestant in Season 8 of Project Run and Play. And yes, she won! She makes some beautiful clothes for her kiddos! They are probably some of the best dressed kiddos around! She also has a pattern line, Paisley Roots Design,  and just issued her second pattern, the All Spice Dress. I’m waiting to see what she comes up with for boy patterns….Hint hint…

Welcome, Karly!

Hey! I’m Karly from Paisly Roots and I’m so excited to be over here talking about my families favorite game. Balderdash.
The game is for people 12 and up so my kids haven’t quite gotten the grasp of it.
If you’ve never played it before I will give you a run down.
There are 5 different categories:
WORDS – what is the definition of this word?
PEOPLE – what is this person known for?
INITIALS – what do they stand for?
MOVIES – what is the basic story line?
LAWS – complete the law!
There’s one person that will be in charge each round and that person decides which category they want the round to be. Once the category is chosen the word on the front gets read out and everyone then has to write out some lie that sounds believable and pass it to the person in charge.
They all get mixed up and read and then everyone goes around choosing which they think is the correct one.

We adore this game and have so much fun with it! Unlike Monopoly where fights would constantly ensue, this game just makes us laugh and laugh and is played at every family gathering.

Seriously, the things we come up with…..

So now onto our shirts. I used the Tinley Tee pattern to make both. For Zoe’s I used a purple knit sheet to match the game colors and used Freezer Stenciling with fabric paint. For Aevaries, I wanted to try and show a little on how the game is played. We chose the initials and had fun coming up with acronyms for it. I used a pencil that I dipped in fabric paint to then draw out the words, since there was no way I was going to cut all of them out in a stencil! Aevarie also added a little extra to hers (aka: hearts and smiley face).
It wont take long for these guys to have this game down like pro’s.
