Craftster, to me, is an online enabler to my need to "know how to do that." There are so many extremely talented people in this community, and all of their beautiful creations make me want to try new things and really challenge myself. I'm so thankful that so many here are willing to share what they know. I have learned so many new things from this community, and you have truly helped me find my passions.  Kiss

Though I didn't originally see the tutorial for this project on Craftster, I've been inspired by many similar projects here. I have stenciled a few tees in the past, but I've never painted an entire garment...I'm not really a painter, at all. It was so much fun! I'm already starting a second shirt.  Grin I covered my dress form with a garbage bag, and used a couple garbage bags in the sleeves. I painted it in 3D.  Cheesy After washing, it was surprisingly soft - hardly stiff at all from the 5 or 6 layers of paint.  Wink I used a straw, dipped in paint, to make all of the 'stars.' I had my 16-month old in the baby carrier while I did this in our garage, and he was cracking up...and then he got the hiccups.  Cheesy So cute.

It's acrylic paint, mixed with fabric medium and watered down a bit. I also heat-set the paint before washing.

Thanks! You guys are super sweet!

I wanted to point out that it started as a brown shirt...the tutorial, I think, calls for black or navy blue, but brown can work too. Grin
