Cut a star out of freezer paper. I always use and exacto knife. Then I also free cut the USA out. Iron it on and paint. This blue was a shiny sparkly blue from Micheals. It is the tulip brand fabric paint.
Chose an old white shirt (or new!) I just cut the stars out and ironed them on. For the right side I just used masking tape for the stripe width. Take your paint brush and lightly sweep it over the ironed on stencils until you like how it "feels"
I find myself looking at craft blogs when I need an idea or help with a specific project. This year I challenged myself to actually make some of the projects I've been inspired to make. So I'm becoming a "doer" instead of just a "looker". These projects are easy and usually finished in one sitting because with 2 little ones and soon to be 3 running around who has time to craft all day!!
