I really wish I had a funny story or words of wisdom to add to this post. But I got nuthin'... SO you get boring old Cheryl.
This flag shirt came together in less than an hour which is my favorite kind of project. I wasn't going for precision. I wanted it to have a bit of a worn, rustic look. Probably because I was watching Junk Gypsies while making it!!
Materials: Cotton T-shirt // Rit Color Perfect Dye // Painter's Tape // Foam Stars
All the materials except the dye came from Michael's.
First, I fit a piece of cardboard into the shirt so the dye would not soak through to the back. Then I taped off the star section with painter's tape and laid the stars out. They are adhesive foam stars but I didn't adhere them to the shirt.
Next, I used Enamel Blue Rit Color Perfect with the spray nozzle and sprayed in the taped off area. Then I carefully removed the stars and the tape.
Next, I taped off the stripes and used Apple Red Color Perfect dye with the brush to paint on the stripes.
After the shirt was dry, I cut the hem off of each sleeve, rolled the sleeve up and tied the cut piece through the neck and sleeve to cinch it up.
