Printed Denim for Every Sweetheart
I stopped into Anthropolgie a while ago and saw this pair of super cute heart printed jeans by AG Stevie. So I decided to try it myself. I am extremely happy with the results and they looked even better on!

    What you will need:

    White fabric paint
    Ruler

    Step 2

    Start by marking your jeans up to create a guide for your heart stencil. I made my hearts 2 inches apart. I started by marking one inch markings first though so that I got an idea of the spacing.

    Step 3

    Cut a heart shape stencil from a small piece of cardboard and use this as your paint stencil.

    Pour the fabric paint onto a plate and apply paint using a small cosmetic sponge, ensure to remove excess paint by dabbing onto a test sheet of paper.

    Start stenciling from top to bottom, vertically.

    Step 4

    I made my hearts all two inches apart, where I had space for a portion of a heart, I also tried to fill it in, i.e. along the seams. Once again I've made my hearts all 2 inches apart vertically and horizontally, and created a 'diagonal' grid type of pattern. Follow my image below if you're unsure.

    Repeat on the other pant leg and try to be as symmetrical as you can. I found placing the legs side by side and taking a ruler and measuring across the two legs works the best.

Really cute! Do you think acrylic paint works on cotton? Or should I buy the fabric paint just to be sure. Want do it on a shirt instead of jeans.
