Hey guys! Pie20102011 here. Recently I was put in a secret santa thing with my friends. I choose my best friend "coincidently". (she made me pick each name until I got her's) Even though she's my best friend I has to no idea what to give her. Until I saw a Mean Girls you go glen coco shirt. I was like I can get her that! But when I saw the price I was like woah.. So being my cheap self I made my own. And now you too can make your own shirt!
Even if you haven't watched mean girls you should at least see the clip this is from:) ;
Watch the trailer too:

Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: Get the Materials
To be honest I never watched Mean Girls before,but that one part was so funny I just couldn't not make it! I'm planning to see the rest of the movie sometime..
•a shirt any color any style
•black or any color FABRIC paint
•sponge brush (or something like that name)
Step 2: Making the Sketch
Too start you need a game plan. Get some scrap paper and draw what the design you want it to look like. This is what mine looked like:
Step 3: The Step With No Name
Get the masking tape and measure how long you want the design to be on the shirt. After make a box and fill in the box with more tape.
Step 4: Measuring for the Design
After putting in all the masking tape get your ruler and measure out where you want each word to be. For the bigger words measure how long each letter will be.
Step 5: Draw on the Letters
Literally draw on the letters. For the big letters I used some electrical tape.
Step 6: Cut Out the Letters
Lift off some of the masking tape and put a cutting board underneath and start using the exacto knife to cut out the letters. *remember save the O pieces*
Step 7: Smoothing It Out
Get a big book, I prefer a dictionary, and start applying pressure on it. Flatten out all the letters and secure them in place.
Step 8: Getting Ready to Paint
Get some cardboard and put underneath the part your painting. Get some scrap paper and cover all around the shirt don't want any paint getting on the shirt it's permanent paint!
Step 9: Painting
Go outside and follow the directions your bottle says. I sprayed mine and used the sponge to spread the paint around. I did 3 coats of it. Mine says to wait 4 hours.
Step 10: Finishing Off
After it has done drying take of all the masking tape off. If you want to you can put white fabric paint on all the black lines. But anyways your done! It says that you can wash it turned inside out and after 72 hours.
