IC#11- Typography Skirt

Today I have another Iron Craft project to share.  This time, the theme was letters.  I thought it would be fun to cover a piece of clothing with a letter pattern.  I originally wanted to do a t-shirt, but decided to use something I already owned rather than buy something new.  I decided this light blue skirt would be perfect.

If you want to make one yourself, here is what I did.  I started with my skirt, some alphabet stamps, and several colors of paint.  I used Martha Stewart brand

Brush the paint onto the stamps and then start stamping on your fabric.  Do a few practice stamps on paper first; it took me a few tries to get it right.

Continue going with different letters and colors.  Since I was working on a skirt, I had to do several sections and let it dry in between.

Some of my letters didn't turn out so well.  I just used a small paint brush to fill them in afterward.

That's it!  I was going to put it on and model it but it's cold and rainy here so that just didn't happen.  (The spacing around this picture was being really weird in my preview of this post and I couldn't figure it out.  Sorry!)

  1. Fun project. This would be great for little girls and big girls both :)

  2. You're so cute! Oh, and so is the skirt! ;-)

  3. REALLY fun, Jenny! Great job.

  4. That turned out great! What a conversation piece and it's so fun and colorful too! Cute!

  5. that is adorable. You chose a great looking font - very recognizable! At first, I thought the skirt was white, but now I see the blue. Nice to have a pretty base to work with (much more original than a shirt!) {:-D

  6. Cute! It's always nice when you can dress up things you already own a bit.

  7. What a fun project!
    I've stamped on clothing before using dye.
