When I lived with Mo back in college, she had a copy of a poem that her mom wrote called 'Lucky Sevens'. It was about Mo, who was born on 7/7. It was kind of an inside joke after that. (There was also an interesting poem about a tootsie roll pop in there.) So I thought that would be a a good slogan for the shirts.
I have tried to make my own stencils before without much success but I came up with a new idea that I thought might work. I decided to cut the stencil out of contact paper so I could stick it directly on the shirt.
1-Print out a Word Document in the size and font you like of whatever you want to go on the shirt. I printed out a page that said Lucky 7's.
2-Tape contact paper over the paper with the word doc on it.
3-Tape this to cardboard and then cut out your stencil with an Exacto knife by tracing/cutting over the word doc/contact paper. (The cardboard keeps you from cutting in to a table or something.)
5-Peel off the contact paper and you should have a nice design/word on your t-shirt.
Do these instructions make sense? No, probably not. But you should do it anyways. Give it your all.
If so, you will end up with this wonderful set of personalized tank tops (which we did actually wear to the pool)...
And that concludes my Vegas posts. B5 you can come back to reading my blog now.
