I was inspired by the new line Forever 21 put out for Hello Kitty. There was a striped sweater with a big red bow. Also from this project from [TC]Squared
This project had a few firsts for me but I'm happy how it turned out in the end.
Print out a HK bow from the internet and make stencil from thin cardboard using exactoknife.
Decide where you want the design on your shirt. Iron sweat shirt and red material.
This sweat shirt is from Goodwill for $4. The stencil was too big for the side shoulder so I put it angled on the bottom corner instead.
This is actually kind of nice because I can wear my red HK necklace with it still.
Tape down the stencil and attach it to a large clipboard or other way to secure it. I used an exactoknife to cut fabric but wish I'd made a chalk outline with stencil n cut it out with scissors. The fabric pulled a lot despite my best efforts.
I decided to take the easy way out and use the liquid stitch. I let it dry 24 hrs then reapplied any spots I may have missed.
when second coat of glue is dry, I cut out the extra fabric from underneath.
There's much more that can be done to make this project special like:
Cut out the neckline, add red thread accents, iron on red letters.
