Stars on my shirt!

chemise DIY ClemmoHappy Sunday, everyone! Let me present you my latest DIY: the stars shirt!

I looked for a shirt with stars on it for a while, but I couldn’t find one that I liked. Finally, I decided to make it myself with a “textile painter” pen. I like the result, but I won’t lie to you: this DIY is more risky than it appears.

First, I had to beg someone to be my model and wear the shirt as I was painting it: John. He was not that happy about it, but I convinced him with a chocolate mousse and TV. One episode of South Park later, it was done. It is tricky to draw quickly enough so that the ink doesn’t expand everywhere on the fabric. With a thick fabric, the paint is usually not uniform; on a light one, the color expands in the fabric and the result is ugly. To prevent this, work quickly but make sure your strokes are precise. I recommend trying the pen on a fabric sample before drawing on the shirt so you know how the ink behaves. Here is my result!
