DIY: Sequin Owl T-Shirt

Many of you may have seen my posts which included owls, well I’m a little obsessed with them right now. I decided to make a little something for myself. I saw an owl t-shirt that was screen printed with a golden owl and that’s when the light went off. I still had my sequins on my desk from my last project so sequins it was.  It’s cute but the t-shirt I bought from Old Navy was not a perfect fit for me so I will be cutting the arm holes bigger and wear a tank under it. This project took me a little over two hours while watching Best Man Holiday in between laughing and crying…....that movie was really good but sooo sad. At least we know there’s going to be another movie with a great cast!

I got a little carried away with drawing a sort of tribal owl and then I remembered that I was using sequins and that I would not be able to use this design…it was looking pretty cool, if I do say so myself. (Patting my own back right now) I have to alter and use a clipart owl drawing as you see below.

  1. Your work is amazing, I can't get enough of you! I want one???

  2. I like this. You could use this for quiet time! I could just see me there with a nice warm drink and good TV show or maybe even music gluing my heart away. Only problem is I can't draw for nothing!

    1. I like the sound of that and yes it is relaxing for sure. I'm sure there is something you can draw or trace.
