Viking Tee

Tuesday I showed you how to cut freezer paper with the Silhouette.  Today I'm going to show you the shirt I made with my stencil.  

Baden is at about the same age Rex was when he went through the mustache obsession.  I think Baden is going to be going through a Viking stage.  He wears this hat everywhere.  (I don't fight him on it because I think it's hilarious.)  So, when I made this little t-shirt for him he was seriously excited.




I ironed on my stencil and used my Tulip fabric paint (soft, matte finish).  


At first I blotted the paint on with a foam brush because I wanted it to look vintage.  (I ended up changing my mind later and filling it all in.)


Then I used "Beads in a Bottle" (also by Tulip) for the helmet details.  Remember?  I used them on THIS clutch as well.  It's a cool product.


Then I painted over it (just because I'm picky) and here it is.


I feel like I have ten different projects partially done or floating around in my head that I'm so excited to show you guys.  I bought some really odd supplies at Target yesterday to make Baden's viking Halloween costume.  I can't wait to show you what it'll be made from.  It's funny.

Anyhow, thanks for dropping in.  See you tomorrow.

Love it! I tried the freezer paper stencil last week & loved doing it. My kids want another shirt done already! And I love how inexpensive it is! Thanks for sharing your wonderful ideas!

LOVE it. Definitely going to give this a go for my little clown. I wonder if I can get beads in a bottle in canada? Hmmmm. Thanks for the inspiration!

Cheri, I love the viking shirt. Very clever. Can't wait to see the costume you're whipping up. I'll have to come up with some project to use Beads in a Bottle. By the way, did you ever post a tutorial for the beaded clutch? Kathy bigfamily8 at yahoo dot com

ps. and just because i'm too lazy to sign out of google and resign in under my name, this will probably post under one of my daughters' names. sorry

What a handsome viking you have! I am putting this on my Christmas to do list for my son and nephews. They are all going through the Hiccup/Toothless stage right now!

Such a cute viking tee! I just love Baden's little scrunched nose smile!

I have the roll of freezer paper and the tee all ready to go just can't decide what to paint...I suffer from crafty block :)

I just love freezer paper! Great idea!

DieselMonkey said...

So cute! I like your final version (painted vs blotted), but man it must have taken a while to do the touch up painting. Kudos!

I have yet to do any freezer paper stenciling. (Mainly bc I don't have any. I wonder if Amazon has some.....)

I got a question for you...does the fabric paint make the fabric stiff?

Trace and Sarah said...

That is so adorable, I have yet to try freezer paper stenciling, but this may just get me going!

Betsy Pool said...

That is such a creative idea! Plus, on your little boy, it's so stinkin' cute!!!

I love this, we have the same Viking Helmet for our two year old Aiden, and he loves it! I wish I had a silhouette to cut that out w/, but I believe I will def try and cut one by hand, this is too cute!

Maggie Muggins said...

OK. I absolutely love this one! What an adorable viking.

My name is Becka said...

This is fabulous! I bought some freezer paper when I saw it in the grocery store just because of you! I thought, "yeah, I have nothing to use it on now, but you never know..."

Hi Cheri! This is adorable! Are the "beads in a Bottle" paints only avaiable online? I live in MN and I cannot find it anywhere.. I've tried Michaels, Hancock, Joanns... no one carries it. I would LOVE to make a clutch similar to what you made, and this little guy is adorable too! Thanks again for all you do! :)
