This No Sew tank is similar to a couple of other no-sew tanks I have done in the past, but is designed and cut differently and because I am completely obsessed with palm leaves right now I experimented with a positive and negative design which creates a shadow effect. I am thinking my next project will be palm leaves in different bright colors like Hot Pink or Neon Blue.(80'sStyle) I seriously LOVE this new fabric Color Shot spray by Tulip. It has cut my time making stencil design T-shirt in Half and with the limited time I have that is a super big plus for me.
This shirt has already found a new home
as one of my dear friends said she would love to have it
for her beach trip in July, so bye bye shirt.
Oh well I guess I will just have to make another one ;) .
Things you need.
T-shirt *this one is a XL Hanes Comfort Blend
First things first, lets cut up our shirt into the shape.
Using a piece of chalk or a pencil trace this patten
front and back
Cut on your lines.
Now you just tie the front and the back together.
Super easy right?
I make a lot of the stencils that I use for my projects,
mostly because I never can find exactly what I am looking for.
I did a quick tutorial on how I do that
On this project I used both the positive and the negative stencil to give it a little shadow effect.
Tulip Color Shot instant Fabric paint has seriously made my DIY life so much easier.
I first placed the negative stencil down and
I used the white Color Shot paint and sprayed around the stencil.
I did that all over the shirt.
Let that dry completely about an hour.
*Tape some paper around my positive stencil to block the over spray.
in the middle of your leaf to give it a little 3D effect.
*Repeat that until you get the look you desire.
Let dry completely.
To wash this you should let your paint set up at least 24 hours.
Wash in cold water hang dry
This is a muli-way tank because you can tie this up and create so many different looks.
Here are just a few ways I have done it.
The Regular Tank
The Front and Back Tie
How many looks can you create?
I did a similar tank for I Love To Create not to long ago.
Have a wonderful Sunday!
I am now off to visit my family who are here for my handsome Nephew's Graduation.
Congratulation Ethan we are so very proud of you!
Lots of <3,
