Pi Shirt

It’s one-week til the fabulous Pi Day – time to start crafting for it.  Here’s what I made, a Pi Shirt for Trevor – it’s so cool!!

 It’s a pretty simple shirt to make.  I should use “make” loosely because the shirt was already made – I just stenciled the symbol onto it.  I found the shirt at Goodwill Outlet and couldn’t pass it up – I knew it was perfect for this project.   I’ve wanted to make a shirt like this ever since I saw the inspiration over at 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.

I made a stencil using my Silhouette and contact paper (it’s clear, so a little hard to see).  It’s a simple shape so you could hand-cut it as well.

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.

Now we’re all ready for March 14th, 3-14, 3.14, Pi Day – next week.  Are you??

    I wouldn’t say I’m ready for Pi-Day yet this year because I’ve got quite a few things to get ready. I’m going to go in and help my son’s kindergarten class and my daughter’s second grade class celebrate. Most of us have Pi-Day shirts that still fit, but I’m thinking of making the boys Cow Pi shirts. We’ll see if I get them done. We’ve celebrated Pi day for quite a while. If you want to see some of our activities, they’re all in a round-up here http://helpinglittlehands.blogspot.com/2012/03/12-pi-day-activities-and-ideas.html
