So, I had bought this plain polo from target awhile back for about $3. I decided to make Westen a Wildcat shirt (GO UK!!). I saw a similar shirt on Gap's online store. It said Pacific and had a different number. Because I don't have a Silhouette machine (which I'm dying to have), I freezer paper stenciled the words and number on. Click here for the how-to on that. I used fabric paint I already had on hand, thus the reason it's not true blue UK colors.
I like how it turned out, but I wanted the letters to pop a little more. I decided to outline them using a black Tee Juice fabric pen, which I also already had.
Like I said, I think this made the letters and number stand out a little more.
And that's it! Voila! I, of course, heat set it before washing it. Westen wore it to preschool today and is all ready to cheer the wildcats on tonight! Go Big Blue!!
Have a great weekend! I'm linking up to Cheri's party, here.

Hi and welcome to our blog! I am Kate - wife of super high energy, super republican, super fun husband, Austin, and mother of 2 adorable, sweet boys - Westen and Baron! And mother of our eldest child, our sweet Boston Terrier, Cousey! Yeah, I'm outnumbered 4 to 1 so we have a home filled with rough-housing, trucks, trains, sports, you name it! I am what, over the years, has been called homemaker, housewife, and stay-at-home mom. I dare not say what today's society may call me (I kid... I kid!) I love being home with my boys and attempting to make my house a home. I'm what my mom calls "crafty", but feel more like a novice and hope to improve on my DIY and home-making skills. This blog is a way for us to share our adventures with our friends and family. To learn more about us, click here. Enjoy!
