It's winter. It's cold. It's dreary. Maybe, like me, your energy levels feel low, but you feel like you should be doing SOMETHING. This project might be the perfect project for you.
I have a certain six year old son who LOVES super heroes. Because of this, we also have several super hero shirts laying around including a few that he outgrew before he could even destroy them. (This is amazing because Evan is a whirling dervish of destruction.) These were the cheap Hanes or Fruit of the Loom type shirts. Amazon had them like four in a set for $8 or so. I chose not to do all four of the shirts because the other two were super heroes we already had artwork for from a shop on Etsy.
- Outgrown t-shirts
- Canvases of your chosen size (mine came in a 2 pack in the Walmart craft section)
- Staple gun
Now the next part you could do very carefully or semi-carelessly. I chose the latter. Basically, I cut the shirt straight up the back and chopped the sleeves off. Because they are cotton-jersey, I just stapled and then stretched, stapled and then stretched.
Upon finishing, I cut off the excess material. I was a little more haphazard with the Superman shirt than with the Batman one. The second time went a lot smoother than the first.
