Garden Green Tank Top
I found this beautiful stencil at Michael’s and couldn’t resist painting another shirt. Start with a white cotton tee or tank, apply the stencil on one side, paint, then repeat on the other side. Consider alternate ideas like placing the stencil on the shirt hem, at the shoulders, or down one side. Look for white shirts on clearance and you’ll really create quite a bargain! Expect to see this stencil on more projects to come. I’ve air brushed my design but you can paint it with Lumiere olive paint and a brush or sponge if you prefer. Carefully read the instructions on the paint container you choose.
BEFORE PAINTING, ALWAYS WASH AND DRY FABRIC (WITHOUT FABRIC SOFTENER). DURING PAINTING, COVER EXPOSED FABRIC TO PREVENT ACCIDENTAL OVER SPRAY. ALLOW PAINT TO DRY BETWEEN STEPS.
step 3 - Spray the back of the stencil with repositionable stencil spray.
If you sew, here are some additional ideas. You can put the design at the cuffs of a long sleeve shirt before sewing the sleeve seams together. Sewing the shirt also gives you the opportunity to easily place the design at the hem on the front and back shirt pieces and aligning them before sewing.
