In the words of Santigold, "Me, I'm a creator, thrill is to make it up..."
So, when I found myself checking out shirts online with cool, holographic stripes, all ranging from $100 to almost $700 (!!) I thought, heck, I'll just make it myself AND I'll make it better because I know exactly what I want.
- Lauren wanted an "I <3 New York" shirt, which she picked up in Manhattan for $12.
- She was inspired to make an updated version of the classic shirt that would feel nostalgic but a little fashion-forward.
- Two sheets of holographic iron-on was pilfered from Happy Crafters for $7.50.
In all, the project cost us:
(including the price of the iron-on, which we have a lot more left of in each of our sheets to use for other projects)
- Gloria's Shirt: $38.75
- Lauren's Shirt: $15.75
- One fun Sunday afternoon
Worth the time, totally worth saving the money, and already we're brainstorming other things we can holograph (totes? pouches? shoes?).
