boys geometric tshirt tutorial

 Hey Y’all Alida here again from Alida makes…..I am so excited to share this fun BOY tshirt tutorial with you!
This is such a fun look, and so easy!
You’ll need:
Freezer paper
Ruler
Exacto knife
3 different colors of fabric paint
Sponge paint brush
Iron

First I used my ruler to draw parallel diagonal lines.  Then I drew diagonal lines going the other direction.  Then I drew perpendicular lines so I had triangles.

With an exacto knife I cut out the triangles.

I put the freezer paper triangles, shiny side down, side by side on the tee shirt.  Then I ironed them in place.  (As you can probably tell I made this tee from scratch, but you can do it with any old white tee.)

I used a spongy paint brush to sponge on the paint.  I used the same paint brush for each color.  I did the lightest first, then the darker, then the darkest.  The effect is a slightly marbled finish.  If you want crisp, uniform triangles, wash your paint brush whenever you switch colors.

Then I waited for it to dry.  That is the WORST!  I just wanted to see what it was going to look like!

When it was finally dry I peeled off the triangles and Ta-Da!  Make sure that after you peel off the freezer paper you cover the painted part with a piece of muslin and press it with the iron.  The heat will seal it.

I love this shirt paired with salmon shorts and a fedora, but it looks equally good with board shorts at the beach!  If you make this I would love to see photos!

    I’m really enjoying the theme/design of your blog. Do you ever run into any internet browser compatibility
    issues? A small number of my blog readers have complained about my site not working correctly in Explorer but looks great in Chrome.
    Do you have any tips to help fix this problem?

    Without any apparel experience or knowledge,but with dogged determination, she has claimed this gap
    in the market. He is then labeled, diagnosed, and administrated more poisons
    so society can accept him. It was this necessity that created
    the evolution of posole, the Mother process for preserving all corn among the native peoples.
