Conversation bubbles are popping up everywhere! People make them, put them on sticks, and show them off at a wedding or other party. They also make conversation bubbles and put them in scrapbooks. You know what a conversation bubble is, right? It’s a drawn circle, with words inside of it, and a pointer that indicates who is saying those words. If you make conversation bubbles you can create the cutest shirt and clothing accents. They’re fun and look fabulous.

There are literally thousands of different conversation bubbles that you can make and wear. The bubble can be made permanent, or removable. It can be made to look like a chalkboard or can be made from plain cloth. You’ll need a pattern; you can buy a stencil, print out a conversation bubble and use it as a pattern, or just draw one in a freehand style. It can be helpful to look at pictures of conversation bubbles to get an idea of how to draw the pointer, and such.

To make a temporary tattoo bubble, cut the shape from a piece of chalkboard contact paper. Buy it online by the roll; a roll will make many, many conversation bubbles. You can write what you want and then stick it to a shirt, a purse, or the back of a jacket. To make a permanent but changeable conversation bubble, use chalkboard fabric, and write what you want on it each time you use it. To make a permanent, unchangeable version, cut a piece of ordinary cloth. The best kind is fabric without images. Write what you will on the fabric bubble with a paint marker. The marker is permanent so you can wash the clothing item without worry.

Conversation bubbles can have any message inside. You can write “I Love Cats”, “Life is Beautiful”, “Hello”, “Ask Me About My Business”, “I’m In Love”, or any other statement. Most conversation bubbles have a pointer that indicates who is speaking, and the pointer is generally aimed at the head or mouth. You won’t be able to do that unless you’re wearing a hat, and you put the bubble on it. Otherwise, just let the pointer be where you put it, aimed at the shirt it’s on, the purse it’s on, or the other article of clothing that it’s attached to.

Make conversation bubble clothing accents for kids and adults. Craft ones that stay on the clothing and ones that you can remove and replace. It’ll become a favorite pastime of yours.
