Godzilla and the plane!
I never knew that I couldn't live without a shirt with that on it until now! See what you did!?!?!

Those are awesome and I love your vinyl idea for the stencils.  Historically I've always used less permanent media for creating the stencils  - and I have a heat knife which creates those wonderfully clear cuts.  Wish I'd thought of that Smiley  I think I'll go get supplies and let my kids go nuts with this next week before school starts.

they came out great, and thanks for sharing that site, it has really good stencils. but i got a question, you said u used acrilic paint, doesn't that make the fabric hard, the part you painted at least?

Thanks everyone!  I'm so glad this was helpful to you all.

Morbid Angel, I haven't had a problem with the paint making the fabric hard.  The other day when my boy put on one of them he said, "Mom, this feels just like other shirts."  He was meaning store bought ones with pictures on them.

Someone pm'ed me and asked where I got the lizard skeleton stencil.  I forgot to mention that.  I got it from here....

http://www.ottobredesign.com/

if you click on english and I think free patterns, you'll find it.  They call it a lizard print.  There's also a cool turtle skeleton one.

I just wanted to say thanks for posting this. I've been wanting to do something with my lil' guy's boring old tees but I hate applique. This looks really fun but  I doubt I have the patience to make a stencil, probably going to just freehand it.

I really love the chuck taylor shirt!

For those of you who might want the monkey stencil.  I found a link with the font.  It's free to download...

And I also like the font found on this site.  It's called Sakabe Animals 02.  It has a funny shark with sunglasses...

Enjoy!

Oh, and Paper Flowers (and everyone else!), be sure to post your shirts when you're done!  I'd love to see them.

Oh, wow. Just the best. thank you!

And, ya know, I don't think your boys will ever forget this. Maybe other things will happen; but you'll ever be the mom who understood them and made things that reflected that. They are lucky lucky guys!
