Kurt Halsey & a cityscape
Tuesday March 14th, 2006 01:06 AM
Shirt #1 before:

The green shirt was far too short so I cut off the bottom, sleeves and neck part, resewed the top part of the sleeves so they're even longer and then attached all of that tot he inside of the purple shirt.

The second shirt before:

When I dyed the bottom part black I dripped a bit of dye in the sky part of the shirt.

Airplane to cover the dye spot.

The stencil is still a bit wet so it looks splotchy :/

I tie dyed the whole shirt first, then dip dyed the bottom black then and then did the stencil.

Great shirt makeovers!! I LOVE that kitty stencil! Where did you find it? Or did you make it (and the skyline) on your own?
You look so much like my friend's daughter......but she's only 13. (But good grief, she's already got a nice figure like yours!!)

Can you give some more detail for a newbie like myself? What kind of paper did you use for the stencil and what kind of ink did you use?
I looks great!!

I wish anyhting I ever stenciled was my own work. Unfortunatly I can't draw, at all. Stencils: and

I used freezer paper. You can buy a huge roll of it at the grocery store (usualy near the wax paper and ziplock bags). One side is shinny and can be ironed onto clothes. It creats a creat bond so your stencils don't bleed. After the paint dries you just pull the freezer paper off. I used Jaquard brand Textile color. Which is just fancy fabric paint.

These are wonderful!

I love what you did with the shirt that was too short, that's an inspired idea.
