|Warning: I am not a model.|
A few weeks ago I came across Matchstick Magazine, which is awesome, and within its virtual pages, I discovered this tee:
Which is apparently no longer available. So even if I wanted to spend nearly 80 bucks on it (I don't), I wouldn't be able to. All of this means that I basically had to make my own. Right? Right.
Luckily, I picked up a oatmeal colored t-shirt on clearance at Target that really could use a big bow. Using the Wildfox Couture tee as inspiration, I drew a bow. I printed my pretty bow onto a piece of freezer paper and used an Xacto knife to cut my drawing out. Then, I ironed the freezer paper onto the tee and used a sponge and a little fabric paint to make my bow.
My bow got moved a bit more to one side. And I really dig my new tee. And I hope you like it too.
I learned a few things while trying to take pictures of the finished project. Mainly that my son really likes to have his picture taken. And also that I make weird faces.
So. Do you want to make your own big bow tee? Do ya? Well. Listen. I've got your back.
You can download a pdf file of the stencil I used right here. Right now. For free. I just ask that if you download my stencil that you also become a follower of persia lou or subscribe to my RSS feed. Deal?
