To learn the details there are tons of online tutorials available. Here's the basic idea...
Step 1 Find an image you want to use. I searched online using google, but make sure to keep the image simple.
Step 2 Trace image onto freezer paper using a pencil.
Step 3 Cut out image with craft knife. Toss the positive and use the negative as your stencil.
Step 4 Iron stencil onto shirt (must use a dry iron.
Step 5 Use brush and paint over stencil with fabric paint.
Step 6 Remove stencil and voila!
These shirts are super simple to make, quick, inexpensive and look adorable. I certainly messed up my share while learning. Here are my tips so that you may avoid some of my mistakes:
- Do not use too many coats of paint. Two to three is max!
- Make sure not to use any steam on the iron.
- Peel away stencil slowly as soon as you finish painting.
