freezer paper and an exacto knife are sooo 2010.
if you want to create a personalized shirt anymore—you bust out your cricut or your silhouette or your whatever personal electric cutter and make lines so crisp and letters so straight you could…
well, i don’t know what you could do. but it would be impressive, i’m sure.
not all of us are there though. some of us still kick it old-school.
sharpie, freezer paper and exacto knife baby.
a blank tee is my canvas, and the world is my oyster.
especially when that blank tee was like $1 at walmart (yes, the tag says $3, but i think i paid $1)
when i saw this quote floating around the interwebs, i knew it would be the perfect shirt for little man…
i’d love to stay, but i really mustache! ("must dash", in case you're like googiedaddy. man has no vision sometimes.) ha! hahaha! that makes me laugh. it makes me laugh in a way that makes my whole belly shake and five probably thinks there’s an earthquake or a tsunami or something.
i took a piece of freezer paper the size of the area i wanted to cover, folded it find the center, and just free-handed my lettering & mustache.
then i cut it all out and ironed the freezer paper down.
hit it with some black fabric paint…
and the big reveal…(i LOVE the big reveal)
to give it a little more something, i used the red fabric paint pen that i used to make little man’s woody shirt and added a bit of crazy detail…
and there you have it. doesn't get much easier than that. no electronic devices necessary.
(and despite his serious face, he actually quite loved the shirt. i guess maybe the whole "mustache" thing requires a more upscale and staid personality than my typical crazy little man)
(he’s twirling his imaginary mustache, can’t you tell?)
i'm linking this up here today:
