neon dinos for my son. A couple of months back I was in the Kate Spade store buying the neon gumdrop earrings when I was hit with inspiration. All I could see for a brief moment were bows and neon. Sort of like being hit over the head and seeing stars. I went home and googled bow paper punches and of course Martha Stewart made a cute one that wasn't the least bit cheesy. Oh Martha what would we do without you?
I basically used the same concept here as I did for my heart punch canvas bags that have since become a hit. Cut strips of freezer paper, punch out your bows, iron on and paint in. That's how I achieved the neat symmetrical rows in the shirt seen on the little blonde cutie above. For Taylor's shirt I just cut out bows in a random pattern and ironed them on in a waterfall effect. I did the same gradating colors, landing on beige, as I did for my T-shirt seen on For the Love Of. It really can't get more simple than that. My main tip is to place a rag between your layers of T so that the paint doesn't bleed through.
Taylor loves her neon shirt so much and I'm going to make some for gifts. I just used the standard T-shirts from Target that are $5. A great little shirt for any girl in your life.
Shelly for letting Ellie model for me and I hope she's enjoying her bow t-shirt as much as Taylor is!
