Project Run and Play. They cut out the symbol and sewed it on, but I wanted to stencil it on - let me show you how I did it.
First, I wanted a dark blue but instead of buying new I just mixed some of the paints I had on hand until I got the color I wanted.
Then I dabbed on the paint. I wanted a "worn" look so I didn't make the coat of paint consistent. The variation in coverage gives it more depth.
It's the same method and technique I used to make my pillows. With them I used even less paint than the shirt.
Here's the photo of the inspiration shirt, if you want to go with the sew-on method:
Trevor was nice enough to pose for me, even if he thinks the sleeve length is weird.
