I ♥ My State Tees

Man, it has been a while since I have posted anything. Life can get chaotic when you are trapped inside with a toddler due to lots of rain!

Well I recently found the easiest tutorial on how to paint clothing with stencils made from freezer paper! Another tutorial that I had read emphasized NOT to iron the freezer paper to the fabric. Pshh I don't know how they thought that was a good idea, because ironing the freezer paper works 100% better!

So once I had the stenciling down i decided to try to make this shirt that I saw over at Living With Punks. You can find the tutorial here.

Here is my version that I made for my niece who lives in Georgia.

And the fabric paint that I bought even had a shimmer to it too, which my 9 year old niece will LOVE!

Then I went ahead and made matching shirts for my son and my nephew.

I opted for a painted star, instead of a rhinestone heart, for the boys' shirts.

Well I hope you are inspired to go create something, and thanks for taking the time to stop by and check out my blog!
