“It takes an athlete to dance, but an artist to be a dancer.” ~Shanna LaFleur
Tonight I am working with Elleri to create birthday gifts for an adored friend from her dance company. She is applying acrylic jewels with fabric glue creating words and designs on a pink t-shirt. I am working on a second t-shirt gift. I am pretty excited that Elleri is embracing the creative approach to celebrating her friends’ birthday. Working away on our respective projects we just had a fun conversation about all the dance quotes she loves. Her favorite appears at the top of this post!
My project involves a t-shirt and Avery Fabric Transfer paper. I used a Flickr site with an amazing collection of letter photographs to select unique d a n c e letters. You will find hundreds of alphabet options – click HERE! I printed the letters on a sheet of Avery Fabric Transfer paper. After trimming each letter, I individually placed each on the blank t-shirt. The Avery package includes specific step-by-step instructions so I will illustrate my process with photos.
