Flag shirts are so much fun to make
and since The 4th of July is just around the corner
I thought this would be a fun project.
I really love these new Color Shot Fabric paints by Tulip.
They cut the time it takes me to do a project in half
which is wonderful because my time is so limited.
Things You Need
Shirt * Mine is a Hanes Large
Star Stickers *Walmart
Cut the front of your shirt.
Cut the back.
Cut a line about 7 inches across.
I measured down about 7 inches from the top.
Cut off the hem part of one of your sleeves.
You will use this to tie your shirt in the back.
This is where you will tie your shirt AFTER you paint it.
Tape off the top-back part of your shirt
right above where you made your cut.
Take your stars and place them on the top-back of your shirt.
Tape off the rest of the shirt and cover with paper towels
or pieces of paper, do this for over spray.
Spray a light coat wait 5 to 10 minutes then spray another coat.
Tape off the bottom-back part of your shirt for the red stripes.
and place paper around the outside to protect from over spray.
After the back dried,
I turned my shirt over to the front
I cut out a heart out of a piece of paper.
I taped off the top half of the heart
and placed some more stars on the top part.
I sprayed that with blue Tulip Color Shot paint.
I took the heart that I cut out
and cut out stripes on the bottom half.
Covered the the heart with my stencil
and sprayed the Tulip Color Shot in Red.
Tie up the back once your shirt is dry.
I waited about one hour.
It makes a pretty Star bow.
Wear to you next BB-Que or to the beach over your swim suit.
Have a a Beautiful Sunday!
Lots of <3
