So when they released the schedule of movies a couple of months back Phil decided that we should all go watch Jaw (1975) the night they show it and that night is next week.
Since I've been on a kick making/buying things for our various outings as of late, I decided to search Pinterest to see if there were any feasible shark things that I could make happen. And while I was searching I came across a shirt from Forever 21 (Which I apparently I had pinned a while back) of a line drawn shark that said "Feed Me" above it and I immediate needed it in my life to wear next week. Unfortunately it was no longer available (Damn it Forever 21!) but I decided that I wanted it bad enough that I'd make it for myself.
- Felt Tip Pen
- Plain White Shirt → I used an Old Navy Women's Plus Raw-Edge Tanks -- $6.00*
- Fabric Markers or Sharpie → I used a Sharpie Magnum® Permanent Marker -- $3.99
STEP ONE: Doodle out the design on your piece of paper over and over again until you think you have it down. Even though this shark is super easy, I actually ended up drawing this shark all over the place for like two days just because I love him so much.
STEP TWO: Place the shirt on a flat surface you can draw on with the cardboard in the middle of the shirt, so the ink wont bleed from one side to the other.
STEP THREE: Hold the fabric taut and draw your design on the shirt.
STEP FOUR: Admire your new bad ass shirt.
This is how mine came out...
I am totally in love with it and all of it's imperfections. I cannot wait to rock it next weekend with my new thrift store flannel and jean shorts on the beach with the other shark goodies my friends and I bring to the beach to watch Jaws (1975).
* I got the shirt on sale for $6.00 ever though it's listed on the site for $19.00
