{I did it! I Did It!}

I stenciled cute t-shirts! Both of these were clearance at Walmart for $2 and $3 respectively. Good for practice right? Well it worked! I used the exact same method as the tutorial I posted yesterday, only with my new fabric paint. I had a terrible time finding the NOT puffy paints, or 3D paints, or whatever. I had to go to Michael’s to get the regular looks-like-acrylic-but-doesn’t-wash kind of fabric paint. Takes a ton longer to dry, too!

These were totally the results I was looking for: cute, cheap, original t-shirts. Which one to wear tomorrow? Hmmmmmmm...

  2. LOVE your stencils and the tutorial was great. Hummmm, maybe another new hobby for me too!

    Your Hey Teach is coming along nicely. Green is one of my favorite color. Can't wait to see the fo!

  3. I'm so glad it worked! Very, very cute!

  4. very cute!! You did a great the tree at the bottom of the shirt--very unexpected!

  5. Wow, they are really super-cute! Maybe you should start an etsy-shop and start selling, I bet they would sell great! On the other hand, then they wouldn't be as original...
