Ed Hardy-inspired T-Shirt

Today I have a fun, wild project for you today.  I took some inspiration from Ed Hardy and made this t-shirt for my little guy.


I got out a plain white t-shirt, my Tulip fabric markers, and the Fashion Graffiti Big Phat Markers.  Then I started to play. 


I drew all over, looking at the Ed Hardy t-shirts for ideas.


Lastly, I filled in the designs with some color.  Then I kept adding more details until I was happy.  The markers are so fun and easy to use.


Then I tried the shirt out on little Baden.  It's wild and fun, but it can also be tamed by pairing it with a sweatshirt or a short sleeve shirt over the top of it.


That's it.  It was a fun and fairly easy project.

Thanks for reading.

You do realize that no one can just "doodle" that well-- right? The shirt is perfect! Bade can really pull it off well.

Way cooler than Ed Hardy.

Yup another great idea I'm gonna have to try!
I haven't seen those markers in the stores, but have seen the new sharpie fabric ones... thinking they'll be just as good?!

So. Bad. Ass. lol !!! I love it. I think the look of those kinds of shirts are super cool but I don't often like all the symbols that are on them for the kids they are aimed at. Just like I wouldn't put a Mrs Timberlake shirt or something like that on my little bitty. Know what I mean? So DIYing this kind of thing is really cool, it means there's nothing on the shirt that you're not OK with, but it still looks super cool!
How many times can I say cool? I'm clearly a pretty hip mom. hahaha.

That's totally awesome and unique! I've seen those markers before and thought " huh, I bet those would look cheesy on a shirt" well...you have definitely changed my mind!
