DIY HUNGER GAMES SHIRT

I read the Hunger Games series over Spring Break while I was camping at Big Bend and loved it of course! When I got home, I called my sister to tell her that my 12 year old niece Alexis had to read them and she told me that Alexis was already on book #2! I was so excited! So Alexis and I chatted on the phone about the book and she asked me the most important question you could possibly ask…”are you Team Peeta or Team Gale?” I said, “Of course, Team Peeta!” So I knew what I had to make her!

 

 

 

I use my Cricut a lot to cut stencils from contact paper for my Burlap Monogram Signs but I have never used the stencils to make a shirt. So I found a simple b/w image on Google and then picked a font and laid out the design on an aqua-colored t-shirt I bought at Target for $5. I love the color of the t-shirt but I am noticing now that the CF bulbs in my sewing room are not awesome for taking pictures!

 

 

I didn’t even think about it at the time, but I should have used the (free) Hunger Games Font that I found online later! Oh well…

 

I used a small and firm paintbrush to carefully paint in the letters with some metallic shirt paint I had already.

 

 

 

I put a few layers on and made sure the shirt was covered pretty well. Then I let it dry overnight. And viola!

 

 

This came out so awesome I love it! I can’t wait to send it to her! I have done screen printing before and it really looks just as good hand painting it like this! I think I am going to make some painted onesies next.

Until later, happy crafting!
