YOU GUYS. In case you haven’t noticed, I’ve been obsessed with graphic tees lately. When I was in middle school, graphic tees with things like “Princess” and “Angel” were all the rage… and I’m kind of STOKED that these are back in action right now, but with far better sayings. I decided I needed to make some of my own, with some of MY favorite phrases, quotes and lyrics. ‘CAUSE WHY THE HECK NOT!? It is SO EASY, you only need two supplies and an iron. Have a t-shirt making party with all your friends and laugh your faces off as you reminiscence about the best chick flicks and rap lyrics! Bonus points if you can name the sources of most of my references.
T-Shirts (I went to the American Apparel Flea Market in downtown LA for cheap shirts! But here’s some good options: t-shirts, sweatshirts, tanks)
Iron-on Letters (I used these black ones and these white ones. For kids/baby sized graphic tees, you can use these smaller ones too!)
1. Choose your phrase and peel those letters (carefully!) off the sheet. Line them up and space them out as you want them.
2. Iron according to package directions. (That’s really it!!!)
Now it’s time to guess all the phrases! Ok.. I gave you some hints. (Like that is my current favorite song right up there!)
