A high school friend and I were talking about t-shirts and I volunteered to make him one.  That quickly turned into two when we were on the phone while I was shopping (AC Moore's $2 t-shirt sale) via phone and I found this pink.  He jumped all over the idea....as long as I was willing to come up with a design, make up the stencil, paint the shirt and eventually ship it to him.  All of which, I agreed to do.
I used a light pink soft paint with a freezer stencil.  It did take a couple of coats...but with working on two, I was able to switch back and forth.  I did learn - the hard way - that my little Tulip mini craft iron is NOT hot enough to iron freezer paper onto t-shirts.  Next time I will carry my heavier model.  (I had gone along with a friend to their office to utilize larger surfaces - thus the cubicle wall seen in the photo where I hung them to dry for the afternoon!)
Thanks for looking!

Awesome! I love the roundness of the design, it's like a record! Well done, and the shade is perfect for someone who is washing all their whites with their reds and expecting to get away with it... and away you go Smiley
