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.

  4. 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

  10. 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.....)

  25. 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! :)
