The Olympic torch is coming to York this week (so exciting!). So I needed something to where when I join the people lining the streets and see the torch pass through our city - enter the GB team kit - inspired hoody!
I bought a plain grey hoody from sports direct in one of their sales with the intention of Olympicifying (yes, olympicifying!) it.
I was inspired by the Great Britain team kit which is white, turquoise and different shades of blue. So, I bought all of the blue fabric paint I could find and set to work :)
I used freezer paper stencils - for full tutorial check out this post - to paint the stars on the front and the text on the back.
Click on the picture to get the template for the sizes of stars I used. To get the pattern I simply measured my top and cut a piece of freezer paper the correct size - make sure to consider pockets!
Next, I marked next to each star the colour I wanted to paint it, cut out the stencil and painted the stars. They only needed two coats - the blues provided really good coverage - but it did take several hours to dry.

Have a great weekend!
