"BOO"tiful T-shirt

Since we couldn't dress up for Halloween, I really wanted to wear something that had to do with the holiday.  So, I decided to decorate a t-shirt.  I didn't have anything since I had gotten rid of a lot of my clothes that were to big for me a few months ago.

The items needed to complete the project:

remnant fabric
letters printed off the computer (used as a pattern)
Fabric Marker
Aleene's Fabric Fusion Glue
Hemming tape of some sort
Bling (gems, crystals or rhinestones)

I chose a font and spelled out the word that I wanted to use for my design.  I printed out on regular printer paper.  Then I cut it out to make used it as my pattern.

Since my fabric's main color was black and my letters were black, I put the pattern on the backside of the fabric.  I used a fabric marker to draw around the pattern onto the fabric.

Then I cut out the letters.

Once the letters were cut out I then cut pieces of the hemming tape and placed them on the wrong side of the fabric.  I placed the letters on the shirt where I wanted them to be and ironed them on.

I placed the gem pieces on the shirt where I wanted them.  I then applied the Fabric Fusion one piece at a time and placed them back onto the shirt.  I let the glue dry for 2-4 hours per the directions.  Here is my "BOO"tiful shirt.
