I pinned this graphic last year and I think it’s cute and funny, and a little bold all at once. So, I put it on a sweatshirt. No big deal. Want to make one too?

p.s. this knitted version from Wildfox is $229 (yikes!). Have a great weekend!

SUPPLIES:

sweater (mine was $15 at Forever 21)

fabric paint (or acrylic with a fabric medium as I used.)

Exacto knife and cutting surface

sharpie

paint brush

printer + paper

Download the templates below and cut the letters out with the Exacto.

Use a ruler to space out the stencil on your sweatshirt, tape it down and trace with a marker.

Before painting, place a sheet of paper, plastic or cardstock between the layers or the sweater to stop paint from leaking through.

Paint away. Follow the instruction on your paint or fabric medium on how to set and wash your garment. Adding heat and washing is usually involved.

    Can I make an accompanying one for my husband that says, “you’ve got barbeque sauce all over your face”? If you haven’t seen Wet Hot American Summer, this will seem weird. :)
