If you have been reading this blog for any amount of time, then it will come as know surprise to hear that my boys love superheroes right now. I showed you Luke’s new Spiderman shirt, knowing full well that I would have to make one for Levi too, but Ironman for him. So here it is! I’m glad I took the photo when I did, because it is already stained on the white background. The result of boyish play. Let me take you through the steps that I took to make these, including a freezer paper stencil tutorial.
- scrap of white knit fabric, about 9″x 8″ square
- fabric paints
- fabric paint brush
- freezer paper
- sheet of plain old paper
- cutting mat and exacto knife
- hot iron (no steam)
- your sewing machine
- a stretch needle or ballpoint needle is very helpful when sewing with knits!
- an image of a superhero that will fit into your scrap square (I find them online and print them out)
