. . . for Lauren and Lauren: DIY Sailboat Tee

August 12, 2012

DIY Sailboat Tee


tee: made myself  skirt: old navy  bracelets: target

After making this painted neon tee, I was excited to find another project similar.
This was cheap, easy and I love how it turned out.
I also love that I can wear it with a maxi skirt or with jeans.


To make it even better, I got to do it with Lauren and Lauren last week.  
We followed this tutorial and it took about a half hour. 
All you need is a white t-shirt, freezer paper and paint. 


You make a sailboat pattern on the freezer paper and iron it on to your tee. 
Then using your acrylic paint you paint your sailboat. 
Let it dry, then peel off your paper!


And that's it!


Hope you had a great weekend!

Pin It!

I love how this turned out and the contrast of colors is too cute. I recently did a similar theme with several small sailboats. I adore this single one though!
