Stencil Painted T-Shirts

My son loves transformers.  I mean he REALLY loves transformers!  Give the kid a new transformer and he will quietly play with it for hours.  It is the only toy he ever asks for.

I was at Walmart the other day and they had solid color T’s marked down to $3.50.  There weren’t many colors left in small, so I picked out red.  I wasn’t sure what I was going to do with it at first.  I thought I might let my son do a design with a bleach pen, but I decided against that.  I just don’t trust him with a bleach pen yet…

I finally settled on using a freezer paper stencil and doing a Transformer image similar to the one I used for his birthday cupcake toppers.  (See my tutorial for freezer paper stencils here.)

This is his best muscle pose!

Came out awesome!  He loves it…

I uploaded this Transformer Image to Google docs if anyone else would like to use it.  Here it is up close:

I will be linking up to some of these fabulous linky parties listed here:

  1. Love it! I'm thrilled each time I find another way to make a favorite T-shirt and thus saving the money it would cost to buy the store bought ones. Great job!

  2. Great job!!! How many times did you have to paint over your lines to get them so dark? The ones I do always turn out to lite. I don't think I am patient enough!!

  3. Great stencil idea! 🙂

    Where is your GFC Widget? I swear I looked all over and can't find it! I'm here from the Alexa Hop! (I think I definitely have Monday brain still going on today!)

  4. Love it! How long does it take you to cut out a design like that? I always think about doing stencils like this one but then chicken out.
