Lego Star Wars Tee and Other Fun

My refashion bin is still overflowing, and despite being busy sewing along with Project Run and Play I am determined to get it under control. I pulled another perfectly good item out of the bin today; another victim of me buying clothes that nobody truly loved.

It was a plain blue Hanes T-shirt that sat in my son's drawer with tags still on it for a year. I was determined to turn it into something he loved, and was excited to wear. Plus I saw a chance to check a project off my 14 Pins List. 

                  Solid Color T shirt
                  Printable Stencil
                  Freezer Paper
                  exacto knife
                  DecoArt SoSoft Fabric Paint 2oz Glitter Silver Bling(affiliate link)

You could use any color fabric paint you want as long as it goes well with your shirt color, but I strongly recommend using deco art fabric paint because it holds up best over time, especially when washed and dried.

1. Print the stencil, and trace onto freezer Paper.
2. Cut out your stencil with an exacto knife and carefully arrange on t-shirt with the shiny side down.
3. Iron it in place and then paint.

It was a fairly easy project and my son is now excited to wear his new shirt to school.

I did get one other Pinterest project done this week. However it was not nearly as successful. My gummy bear Ice Pops Were supposed to look like this.

Instead they ended up looking like this. And the gummy bears were soggy. Oh well the kids were still happy to eat them. 

I completed 2 of the items on my 14 pins list, and found one more to fill in the blank spots, so my list now looks like this:

  1. Love the Lego Star Wars t-shirt!

  2. Thanks Cindy, my son is a huge fan of Lego Star Wars. It's always nice when the kid's love the projects you make for them.

  3. Just stopping by from Craft-o-maniac. I love this shirt! It would be perfect for a Disney Hollywood Studios Star Wars weekend!

  4. That's cool!! I'm emailing to my sister in law, she's good with stencils. Wish I could commit to projects...I sew as I go. Seems like I think of it as work if I make a list! I'm admiring your gumption!
