For our Sisters Share It All this time, it was Landen's pick. She decided to go Project Runway style and make us do a refashion project in one hour. Totally terrifying for me (the queen of taking forever on even the quickest of projects) until I remembered this ASOS sweater knock-off refashion I've been dying to do.
With a super plain sweater I bought a few months ago from Forever 21, and a freezer paper stencil, I pumped this baby out with only moments left on my one-hour clock. To be fair, drawing and cutting out the letters took the majority of my time -- the actual painting took one minute at the most.
sweater: forever 21 (shop) // button up: old navy (similar) // jeans: old navy (shop) // heels: target // necklace: c/o dainty dealsMaterials:
- Plain sweater or shirt
- freezer paper/pencil/scissors
- fabric paint/foam brush
Step 1. Draw out the text on the non-waxy side of your freezer paper, as seen below in the next two photos.
Step 2. Carefully cut out your letters using sharp scissors or an exacto knife. Using a hot iron, iron the freezer paper to your sweater.
Step 3. Place a piece of cardboard inside your shirt to prevent paint seeping through, and then using a foam brush, dab your paint on to the stencil.
Let the first coat dry for 10-15 minutes and then do a second coat to insure total coverage. Wait for the paint to dry completely and then carefully peel the stencil off. If your fabric paint requires a heat seal, do that now.
and that's it!
