Hollister-inspired Tee

I had my really cool niece over this weekend and I wanted to make a shirt for her while she was here.  Since Hollister is her favorite store, we made this Hollister-inspired tee.

We found this one on their web site, but we wanted to alter it rather than copying it.  So, we switched the letters to her high school letters and we switched the numbers to her graduation year.

I drew the letters out in marker and then created a freezer paper stencil.  For the full tutorial on freezer paper stenciling, click HERE.  The orange letters are painted and the pink ones are sewn on. 

Don't throw away the letters you cut out from the stencil.  You can flip them over and trace them onto the heat 'n bond for your lettering (like the pink letters).  You could also just do the whole thing in paint, but we wanted to add a little texture.

The lettering wraps around the back.


Really, have you ever seen a cool school shirt? My school was purple and gold with an elk as the mascott. Not so cute.

Now she has the cool vibe from her favorite store, but a one-of-a-kind school spirit tee all at the same time.

We'll see you tomorrow.  Thanks for stopping by.
