Hey, y'all! I took an unplanned blogging break due to the simple fact that my life was crazy for a couple of weeks, but I'm back today with a project I'm in love with. Do we have any Divergent fans in the house?! I recently read the first book of Veronica Roth's trilogy, and I am most definitely hooked. I literally read it in a day. No lie. There was a quote from the book that I really loved: "We believe in ordinary acts of bravery, in the courage that drives one person to stand up for another." The quote comes from the Dauntless Manifesto. Don't you just love it? It inspired me to create a custom t-shirt that I can wear to the movie, which I cannot wait to see!
I started with an inexpensive t-shirt from Walmart.
I used my Silhouette to design my graphic.
I found a Dauntless symbol using a Google image search. I traced it with my Silhouette program, and paired it with different fonts, arrows, lines, and a banner until I had a graphic I liked. Then I cut the design from Silhouette brand glitter heat transfer vinyl and weeded it, much like I did with my DIY Monogrammed Shirt.
I'm cheap, so I haven't bought a weeding tool yet. I just use a straight pin. :)
I then ironed the design on the t-shirt following the directions on the vinyl packaging and a little advice from my friend Lil' Mrs. Tori.
I love the way the shirt turned out!
I can't wait to wear it to the movie!
This project has me thinking. What's your favorite quote? I always love to read inspiring quotes. :)
