How to Stencil an Anchor's Aweigh Tee by Kristina

Thursday, September 13, 2012
Okay, not gonna lie... Finally getting my very own Anchor's Aweigh tee? I die! This project has been at the back of my mind for over a year, but for whatever reason, I couldn't ever get my hands on the elusive anchor stencil. I fell in love with the Morgan + Milo shirt released for Garnet Hill many, many months ago. I'm so over the moon about this project. I can't quit making them....for my friends, for my family, even for strangers. It's gonna be like a giant explosion of cutesy-tutesy anchor tees in my living room. Seriously. It's that bad. 


If you don't have a machine that will print shapes, find a drawing on Google of an anchor you like. Print it and cut out the anchor shape, then retrace on card-stock or stencil paper and cut out the anchor so you're left with a stencil.


You could also make your own chiffon flower, but I was too lazy so I bought this little beauty from the girl's accessory section of Target. Not kidding. You'll have to remove the clip from the back, but otherwise, these little flowers work like a dream.

  3. How do you wash? Does the paint fade or come off?

  4. Ooh, it would be cute to stencil on stems and leaves and make a flowered shirt. We used to stencil all the time when I was a kid!

  6. This is adorable! I will never get around to doing this no matter how much I tell myself I will. If you happen to make in extra - say, in a size small - I could take one off your hands.
