The Cover Up.

Like most New Yorkers I own a good amount
of American Apparel clothing.
One of my favorite 50/50 long sleeve shirts
was attacked by olive oil, which left a large
stain in the center. Not cool.

I was thinking that I'd make an applique
for it, but then switched to stencil work.
golden stencil work.

This was a surprisingly easy project.

First I drew out my design on a fancier
version of contact paper















squid. because I can't get enough.

Then I cut out the design with my trusty x-acto knife
and laid the stencil on the shirt.
















I painted it using fabric paint, and a stencil brush
and just dabbing away.















This is my final product.















I think it's pretty sweet.
I can't wait to wear it!!
Hello golden squid goodbye oil stain!
