If you look at fashion magazines, shop the mall, or look around at the coffee shop you already know how HOT houndstooth is right now. And I jumped on the fashion wagon with these two honeys with my own version of fashion t-shirts for the iLoveToCreate website. I wrote about this photo shoot a couple weeks ago, and now the project is up on the site with tons more project ideas for the holidays.
These sweet tees would be fun for a holiday party, and perfect in California. But if you're in the chilly willy weather, they would still look great peeking out from a velvet jacket.
First I dyed the shirts in an ombre style, by dying one side much darker than the other side. Then I surfed the web for a nice houndstooth design, printed it out, and then drew a pattern on freezer paper for a stencil. After cutting out the pattern I ironed the stencil onto the shirts and painted them with black soft paint. After they were totally dry, I peeled off the paper and they were ready to go.
