Remember sometime, about a month ago when I told you guys that I had been working on a few DIY t-shirt projects? Well I am finally putting up my results and instructions! My prized possession is my "I'm Seeing Stripes" shirt. As you can see, the shirt has definitely had some wear and tear, due to my cheap laundry detergent, and because I wear this shirt all of the time!
Here are the instructions:
1. Crop your white t-shirt as desired, using a ruler and a pencil to draw a line of wear you plan to cut it. For short instructions on cropping a shirt, check out my DIY Flower Girl Shirt tutorial
2. On a steady and flat surface (I used an ironing board, instead of my carpet), draw lines that are a ruler's length apart (approx and inch and 1/2), all the way up to the armpit. The number of lines will vary based on shirt size; I had 7 lines.
3. Outline the lines that you plan to paint black, to ensure neatness, and then began to paint within with a black sponge brush. Make sure that the top line is painted black!
4. Measure out about 3 1/2 to 4 inches above the top back line and draw a horizontal line. This is where the yellow portion of the shirt will be. Trace the outside of this area with the yellow paint to ensure neatness and then proceed to painting. Let it dry where it is; it'll take a few hours to dry completely.
And we're finished! This is how I wore it out the other day,
