I'm not. I just have so many heart related crafts swimming around in my head and not enough time to do them all!
Well, I had to squeeze one more shirt in before heart day gets here.
If you are at a loss for what to wear to be festive tomorrow, make this shirt real quick. You'll look adorable!
What you'll need:
Blue & red fabric paint
Painters' tape (or masking tape)
X-acto knife & cutting board (unless you have skinny tape)
Small piece of freezer paper
Cardboard (or something to put in the middle of your tee)
Here's the paint I used:
So, if you have fat tape, like mine, you can cut it in half on your cutting board with an X-acto knife.
This is before I cut it. I followed the lines (you can barely see them through the tape)
Then lay 3 pieces of your tape where you want to start on the shirt & take off the middle piece. This will give you more accurate spacing. Repeat until you have enough stripes.
Paint in between the tape lines. I had just enough paint from this little bottle. So if you are making more than one shirt, buy more than one bottle.
The bottle says you should wait 4 hours for it to dry. Um, that is not happening. I am like the world's most impatient crafter. That tape came off in 30 minutes!
Then cut a heart in your piece of freezer paper (free hand it or use a template).
Freezer paper looks like this (in case you've never bought it) & can be found on the Ziploc aisle at the grocery store.
Iron it down & paint your red heart.
Note: If you don't want the stripes to show through, lay a heart down before you paint your stripes.
Yay! All done :)
Happy Valentine's Day, Everyone!
