I am so excited to introduce you to today’s guests – the incredible, awesome, and talented duo behind eat.sleep.MAKE.
Jen & Shannon absolutely knock my socks off with some of their creations, paired up with their eye-catching photography and beautiful blog design, and you have a combination that can’t be beat.
I reached out to them a few weeks ago to see if they would be interested in guesting on the blog today, and was thrilled when they said yes!
Please join me in welcoming Jen & Shannon, and check out the fabulous tutorial they came up with for us today!!!
What you will need:
- 2 yards knit fabric (interlock is best for this project, but you could use jersey as long as it’s not too thin)
- Rotary cutter and mat
- Iron and ironing board
- Sewing machine and basic sewing supplies (ballpoint needle is highly recommended for this project since you’ll be sewing with knits.)
- Chisel tip paint brush
- Jacquard Textile Color in black (or in any color you choose)
8. You should now have 3 pieces of fabric: a front piece, a back piece, and binding for the neck.
And now this gets passed onto Shannon!
So, this is where I come in.. adding a little flair to this shirt (which I love and have demanded that Jen make me one, too!)
15. I clipped the shirt to a drawing board to keep the fabric taut while I painted.
16. I used Jacquard Textile Color in black and a chisel tip paint brush to paint a geometric design. Make sure to put a piece of paper inside the shirt under where you are painting to prevent any paint from seeping through to the back. Once the paint dries, you iron the backside of it to heatset the paint ont he fabric.
See you soon!
Micro Dino Taxidermy?! YES PLEASE!
Thanks so much for stopping by, and until next time…
