In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, I decided to make this t-shirt with some help from my local Hobby Lobby.
* 3 different types of pink ribbon
* black t-shirt
* white fabric paint
* letter stencil
* 3 buttons
* needle and thread
I first cut the ribbon about 3 inches long. To prevent the ribbon from fraying, I used a lighter to singe the ends. I used a dab of hot glue to keep the ribbon in a cursive "l". After arranging the ribbon letters on the shirt where I wanted them, I used a dab of hot glue to place them on the shirt. Then I sewed the buttons on the part of the "l" where the ribbon crosses.
Now it was time to paint the rest of the words on the t-shirt. I bought a screen letter kit. I was kinda tricky. I'd recommend practicing on some scrap fabric first. Too bad I didn't give myself that advise till after I did it. Oh well.
And oddly, the pics I took seem to have disappeared, so I'm only able to show you the finished product. Sorry!
Do you have a special shirt bringing awareness to breast cancer? Have you seen the NFL players with their hot pink shoes and such? I think it's awesome that it's so popular and hopefully a cure is just around the corner!
