"Class of" T-Shirt

I've seen this shirt float around different blogs lately and thought that I would make one as well.  I had a white t-shirt, thread, & some puff paint, so I went to work.

First, I laid out a piece of paper onto my t-shirt, and with a fabric marker, I outlined my square.

I also used the paper as my guide to draw the red line.  I chose a blue marker for the outer paper because I would be sewing blue thread onto the shirt; this would also be the reason why the red line is red.

I sewed the red line down first, and then sewed blue all the way around.  Then, starting from the bottom, I went back & forth sewing lines.

We got a little crooked towards the end, but I liked it.

I then printed out my saying, and cut it out.  This was my template/stencil.  I used a fabric marker again, to stencil out my words.

And then for the fun of it, I add some puff paint.

And here's the finished product {after drying a couple of hours}.  Jaxson got way excited because I had made him a shirt :) 

Later that night I realized that I counted wrong, and this little dude will actually graduate in 2025.  But who would really know that now ;)
