I love the, "hello,"shirts that I see in boutiques, and on cute friends. I wanted to make something similar, but have it be Utah themed, because I also love state themed shirts.
You will need:
I got mine at H&M, because they are 2/$5, and a great fit!
PAPER AND PRINTER
IRON AND IRONING BOARD
MARTHA STEWART FABRIC MEDIUM, CRAFT PAINT, PAINT BRUSH
Double, two finger, or right click the image below. Save image to, "downloads." Print as 8x10, or whatever size you choose.
Print out the graphic, and lay a piece of freezer paper over it, shiny side down. Trace the outside of the word, and discard the printed graphic.
Cut the image out with an exacto knife. This part takes the longest. It took me about 10 minutes.
Place the stencil shiny side down on your shirt, and iron firmly, making sure the steam is turned off. The shiny side will stick to the shirt.
Mix your fabric medium with your craft paint according to package directions, and lightly daube paint onto the exposed fabric. I got almost all the paint off my brush before daubing. Also, I placed a piece of brown paper bag underneath my shirt on the inside. None of the paint leaked through, but it was a good precautionary step.
Wait until it dries. I waited 20 minutes, Pull the stencil off, and there you have it, a perfectly darling Utah themed shirt in the color of you choosing. These would be great for family reunions and every day.
By the way... if you take care, and gently pull the stencil up, you can use it over and over.
Isn't that cute? If I made another one, I might make the, "Utah," smaller, or I might not.
Please come back. I will be sharing more Utah themed DIY's all week!
Thanks for stopping by.
Have a Happy and Creative Day!
