DIY Hand Stamped Shirt

Hey Guys! How is it going?
I am doing well!
How cool is this shirt? I totally stamped it myself! the tutorial is posted below, as well as a video on how to make it as well!

First you need;
a shirt
fabric paint
a stamp
a sponge brush

sponge your paint onto the stamp using the brush,
make sure you cover the stamp every time before you print it onto the shirt

Hold the stamp down firmly and evenly onto your shirt for a few seconds 
then lift up carefully

Cover your shirt this way until you are finished, 
also I put a folder in between the layers of fabric, so that I didn't get any paint leaking through the other side

Cute right?

I do love the New Orleans Saints, but I didn't realize that I had created a shirt that matched them exactly until after the shirt had been finished! haha oh well! 
Go Saints!

Here is the video tutorial:

DIY BatMan Shirt With Cape

So the last installment of the Dark Knight movies is coming out! I am so exited for it, so I decided to make this tutorial :)

Start with a black T shirt and cut 2 rectangles of black fabric to fit on the back of the shirt This will be your cape

cut the neck and shoulders to be exactly like the neck and shoulders of the shirt

Scallop the end of the black rectangles

Sew the two pieces together and top stitch around the whole cape

Sew the shoulders of the cape to the shoulders of the shirt, either by hand or use a machine

print or draw a bat emblem, cut it out of paper, then pin and cut it out of felt

place your felt bat emblem on the front of your shirt and machine stitch all the way around the felt


then head outside and fight some crime!

This is the video tutorial for the shirt

DIY American Flag Jacket

The 4th of july is coming on way too soon! I wanted to wear something crazy patriotic for my cities parade and this is hat I came up with! So lets get started!

First you need star stickers
I made mine out of this duct tape that had a peel away back to it

Then I grabbed a pain white jacket and stuck the stars on the top, and the stripes around the body and arms

After covering my work space and the part of the jacket that was going to be red, I sprayed the stars blue

Then flipped it over and did the back 

Then I covered the blue and sprayed the red

Again, flipping it over and spraying the back as well

After waiting 48 hours, I peeled off the tape and let the jacket sit for another day
After 72 hours, I washed and dried the jacket

And that is all there is to it! So cute right?! Can wait to celebrate the 4th of July!
