Do you ever get an idea of something you want to make in your mind and then struggle to figure out how to do it? I've had this idea for weeks and was just able to complete it. It's actually very simple, but finding the right product, I went to every craft store and asked every employee and finally just found it myself. [I almost thought I was going to make my million inventing it, but, alas, it really does exist already.] Ironically, I found it at Joann's Fabric Store, and oddly, the maker (junetailor.com) doesn't even have the black flocking online.
The lighthouse silhouette--inspiration: St. Augustine lighthouse
Print this and cut out
Supplies (plus an exact-o knife)
1 Using numbers 1-5, cut out of black iron-on flocking sheets on the reverse side
2 Arrange on shirt/sweatshirt/pants of your choice. If you need to use the lettered pieces to adjust spacing, do so, or just eye it.
3 Using the paper provided, iron about 30 seconds on high.
4 Remove plastic sheeting on cutout
You [read I] can go crazy with this stuff. You could make those face silhouettes that everyone and their dog is doing these days, or your child's favorite fascination. I really like the simplicity of a black graphic image. What are you going to do?
