My sister and I have been planning to make these Mockingjay tees for when the first movie comes out NEXT MONTH! Can you tell I’m excited. *hyperventilates into a paper bag*
If you haven’t read the Hunger Games series, you probably live under a rock. And if you do, kudos to you for figuring out the internet under that rock. 😉 just kiddin’.
But seriously. The books are amazingly good and I read them constantly…I’m a bit of a HG nerd over here! (really, don’t get me started)
I used a Mockingjay image (searched Google), printed it, cut it out to make a stencil, then traced it on the back of some shimmery gold fabric I got at Joann’s. Then I carefully cut it out (with my awesome scissors!), and used some of that sticky sewing tape (Stitch Witchery) to keep it in place while I sewed around the edges with black thread.
I’m really happy with how it turned out! Now I just need to thrift an orange backpack and a sweet hunting jacket and I’m set.
And if you got that joke you are awesome.
