Note for my German- speaking visitors
Liebe deutschsprachige Besucher, herzlich willkommen auf meinem Blog. Ich schreibe hier für Euch auch auf Deutsch. Deutsch ist nicht meine Muttersprache. Da ich die Sprachschule nur 8 Wochen besucht habe werdet Ihr manchmal Schreibfehler, falsche Satzstellung etc. hier entdecken - macht nix, oder?

Schmunzeln und korrigieren erlaubt!

Vielen Dank für Euren Besuch!

Some of the posts on this blog cover products that are sponsored. Sometimes I receive fabrics or other products at no cost to me. Despite this, all opinions are my own, and neither do I use any prepared text from the sponsors, nor do I get paid for the blog post. If I link to shops and products, I do so on my own will, and do not get paid for it. Most of the craft supplies I show or talk about have been purchased by me, or I have on my own will asked the company for a sample, and have not been required to blog about it.

Einige Blogberichte auf diesem Blog beinhalten Produkte
, welche ich kostenlos zur Verfügung gestellt bekommen habe. Trotzdem sind alle Meinungen, die in den Beiträgen geäußert werden, meine eigenen, und ich werde für diese Berichte nicht bezahlt. Desweiteren verwende ich keine von Sponsoren vorbereiteten Texte. Wenn ich zu Shops oder Produkten verlinke, dann tue ich dies aus eigenem Willen und werde dafür nicht entlohnt. Die meisten Bastelprodukte und Schnittmuster habe ich selber gekauft oder ein Muster angefordert, ohne verpflichtet oder gebeten worden zu sein darüber zu berichten.

T- Shirt refashion - Tutorial

In a previous post I showed you the product from Ryher that I recently discovered. Let me show you how I made these T-Shirts.


You will need: MyStyle special glue, fine flitter, fabric paints (I use Marabu), stencils, stencil fixative spray, rub- off foils and optional hot set stones.


Lets make the chick t-shirt first. The idea for the bird t-shirt is the same, except I combined the rub off foil with the flitter.

Place the stencil on your t-shirt and apply some of the glue. This stencil is not self adhesive, so I used some temporary spay- on adhesive.


 Spread it with a brush making sure that you have a good coverage, but be careful not to overdo it. Be careful not to get any of the glue under the edges of the stencil or you will not get crisp lines. I did it from the outside onto the inside. As you can see, we had a stain on this t-shirt that I could not get out. No problem. Got covered with the chicken:)


Cover the glue with the fine flitter. Remove the stencil carefully and carefully shake off the rest of the flitter into a bowl. You can save the flitter for making other pictures or the rainbow fish. Iron to set according to the manufacturers instructions.


Remove the left over flitter and proceed to do the other colors in the same manner.


I did not want everything with flitter, so I used some fabric paints.


I added some hot set stones. First, I wanted to do the lettering in stones, but realized that I did not have enough of the same color, so I used a glitter fabric paint liner.


The plastic eye is the kind that you can sew on. This project is washable (turn it inside out) at 40 degrees Celsius. Cute, right?

For the birdie t-shirt, I used a screen printing stencil from Ryher. It is self adhesive. I spread the glue with the special rake, placed the rub off foil shiny side up and ironed according to the manufacturers directions. Next I dabbed some more of the glue and put some flitter on top and ironed it again. Voila! Also washable.


Next week I will show you how I made those:
