New York Gold Tank Top

Finished Size 10” x 11” x 3”
 

The New York skyline is the popular icon I chose for this project. It gleams in gold on this shirt which may be the easiest one to decorate on my website. The purchased tank top, Deco Foil, scissors, card stock and an iron are all you need to complete this project. You can have it ready to wear in an hour. I found this image by searching Google. Go online to find this or other images for your special event. Shiny Deco Foil comes in several fabulous colors. Pick your favorite!
