Presidents' Day diy shirts

started with 3 pictures I found online.  Then in Adobe photoshop I turned them black & white, got rid of the background and then used some tools so the dark spots were solid black.  Then I added all the photos to one image, this created the image below.

Then I used freezer paper and cut out a piece a little smaller than 8.5 x 11 and a piece of card stock.  I used blue painters tape to attach the freezer paper to the card stock and then printed my picture.

Next step: see below image. I used an x-acto knife and my cutting mat.

Next step: I had another picture I printed out and used it as my reference.

Next step: I used white fabric paint and painted a few coats.  Making sure they were thoroughly dry between coats.

Last step: carefully pulled off the freezer paper and threw it away.  Looks pretty awesome doesn't it?!

Lincoln's shirt.

Almost done with McKinley's but it has snowed between 8-12 inches and we have been having FUN!!!
