It's not a shirt – it's a creative experiment. The famous "ceci n'est pas" works of René Magritte inspired the thinking behind this t-shirt project. I picked up a plain, black shirt at Michael's for $3.99 and created this simple design – mixing French and English for fun.
I cut off the sleeves and created an asymmetrical v-neck; with the leftover fabric, I created a few yo-yos to add embellishment at the shoulder.
"This is not a pipe." My inspiration – The Treachery Of Images, 1928-29 Rene Magritte .
To create this look, I stuck 1/2-inch adhesive letters (available at Office Depot) to the t-shirt.
Using a sponge brush, I applied a flat gold fabric paint over the letters.
After about 5 minutes, when the paint was dry, I peeled the letters off with tweezers to reveal the text.
My daughter likes it.
