One White Tee ( this one is from Walmart)
Piece of scrap fabric
Silhouette SD or an Exacto knife
screen printing ink or acrylic paint
1) I started by sketching up a knight chess piece by looking at a plethora of silhouettes online. There are so many designs out there that are copyright free you could grab one and print it out. I plan to have a screen made of my design for future use. ( Don't you love my eyeball eraser?)
2) I believe you can put your image into the Silhouette SD program and cut it out, I have yet to figure this out. I am still playing around with the machine and have noticed that it might be similar to the print and cut options. If you have insight please let me know!
I chose to do the regular method with the knight piece anold fashioned exacto knife.
I saved all the itty bitty pieces to place back on once ironing began.
3) I then used my new trusty Silhouette SD, typed in my text
and let it cut my freezer paper. SO easy!
Didn't she do a beautiful job?! If you don't have a cutting machine you can use an exacto.
4) I ironed the knight to my scrap fabric and then used a small brush to paint screen paint onto the fabric. Wait for paint to dry! I know its hard! I am the most impatient painter.
5) I then did the same with the letters. I pinned the knight to the shirt and top stitched.
