See It Again Saturday: Stamped Little Birdie Shirt

If you missed the field trip yesterday here is what we did:
 
Stamped Little Birdie Shirt

Step One:
Pour a very thin layer of fabric paint onto a plastic/paper plate large enough for your stamp.

Step Two:
Lightly press your stamp into the fabric paint. Be careful not to get too much paint on your stamp. You only want paint on the raised area, it should look something like this.

Step Three:
Stamp your shirt & allow to dry!

Step Four:
While the shirt(s) are drying. I cut out some little birdies to applique to my shirt. Follow the directions on your Wonder Under or other bonding paper and adhere birdies to your shirt.
Like the birdies I used? You can print or download the template from my sidebar! I made the stencil from a Photoshop brush I got at {Pixels and Ice Cream}! If you haven't already, be sure to check out their awesome site!

Step Five:
Apply a very thin bead of Fray Check to the edges of your appliques to prevent fraying.

Step Six:
Sew or hand stitch around the edge of the birds. I had stitched with embroidery floss at half thickness. Then touch up the beak and tail with a little more Fray Check if needed.

You're Done!

Here are some close-ups!
I'm giving these two as a "big sister, little sister" baby shower gift!

Thanks! I know I still want to try the other fabric Denise but didn't have paint that matched. The lavender I sent you home with Monday was actually mine...well the one you gave me a long time ago! Ha-ha! I went to use it and was like...dang it! So I went with blue and your fabric!

Very cute! Do you have to do anything to make the fabric paint set?

Thanks for linking up to the Mad Skills Party!

Jax @ AlyandAsh said...

Yes, you do need to heat set the paint with an iron when dry. Follow the directions on your paint, mine said let dry 24 hours and then heat set. I always place a thin cloth over my shirt and then iron. Thank you for asking!

OMG! I'm SO glad I found your blog! I have lots of beautiful stamps but I've never really thought about using them on clothing. Love it! My little monsters would look so cute in a stamped tee!
