Back to School A+ T-Shirt!



UPDATE:

DO NOT USE SHARPIES FOR THIS PROJECT
use FABRIC MARKERS instead.


..................♥..................

I woke up yesterday morning with a great desire
to take a break from packing...
I needed some "me time"...
I looked around and I realized that all of my supplies were already inside of boxes but two things... my vinyl machine and my sharpies...
Hmmm... hmmmm... what to do?
Oh! I know... I can do this!

The light bulb really went on while  folding and putting away this
 SO VERY CUTE other t-shirt from my Saydi....


The one I did  took me 15 minutes to make...
It took me a lot longer to create this post than the project itself...

This is what I used...
a t-shirt, ruler, color sharpies, vinyl stencil... and a piece of cardboard.


1st...
I made the vertical line... using the ruler and of course the red sharpie...



2nd...
I marked the horizontal lines from the inside of the red line to the end of the t-shirt...
Don't press to hard that will make the fabric wrinkel.
{I put cardboard inside of the t-shirt to protect the back of it and to make it sturdy to work on}


3rd..
I did the same thing with the other side of the t-shirt...
At this point it looked like this.
LUV!


4th...

I applied the stencil and simply "colored inside of the lines"... ;)


5th...
I peeled the vinyl off..


...and I was done!

Here is Anni with her first day back to school outfit...


I love the little A made of pencils...

...and YES, she is an A+ Sweet Little Thing...



If you are planning to make something like this keep in mind that I eye-balled
the lines...don't take all day measuring...
By the way I wasn't kidding when I said everything was packed...
check out my working area :D

Did you do anything to help make the markers set? I used sharpie markers and the bled. The shirt I made looked great for one wear and then I needed to throw it away. Any advise?

 
At September 19, 2011 at 2:16 PM , Blogger brandy said...

How did you set your marker drawings? I did one up and where i did yellow and pink it bled all over the shirt when it was washed. I washed after I ironed the whole design and ran it thru the dryer on a heat cycle.
