We found our stencils at Archivers, the fabric paint came from Micheal’s. We bought our shirts from Wallyworld. Ian got a pack o2009-08-23 18.48.24f t-shirts  and I grabbed a $4 racer back tank.  And to keep the paint from bleeding through I used some school books I couldn’t sell back last semester.

    At least it’s something you both can do together.

    You can also cut out your own stencils by hand using freezer paper (very cheap). Or, if you are into scrapbooking and have a cricut machine, you can use it to cut out very professional looking stencils.

    Look here:

    Loving the stencils. Tell you what, you add a couple of racerback tees to the shop with that fleur de lis and I bet they sell. I am putting in my order now, I would like a black one with a white fleur and a white tee with a pink fleur. I wear a 2x. I’m sayin’!

    They turned out great! You can do them on a hoodie too, and it makes a nice effect if you scrunch up some plastic and dab it on the paint – kind of makes it look old, you know what I mean? @mrshaydee
