We are super into the track and field Olympic events. Last weekend was the women’s Marathon, and I was glued to the T.V. My husband’s favorite Olympic event is the men’s marathon. His favorite runner, Ryan Hall. The race takes place in just a few days, and I wanted to make us T-shirts to show our support for the amazing U.S. athletes. These were simple to make, and I love the outcome I got from layering Tulip soft fabric paint in a neutral shade over Tulip neon fabric markers in various hues.
You will see in the video, I used my Cricut to cut out stencils from adhesive vinyl contact paper (which you can get at the dollar store for a buck). I colored with bright Tulip fabric markers, then did an overlay with Tulip soft fabric paint, letting the bright layer show through in some areas. The effect turned out pretty cool. Check out the quick video to see the process.
*** If you don’t have a cricut or other die cut, you can print off your design and cut out the letters to create a stencil from paper or card stock. Then use stencil adhesive or masking tape to make the stencil stay in place on the shirt.
