This is the long sleeve shirt I made for my boyfriend’s birthday. I took the pattern from one of his shirts and added rib knit (the first time ever). I wanted to make it somehow special and got inspired by Hitchcocks „The Birds“ (the movie on DVD was my second present). I made a lot of bird-stencils and airbrushed them on the shirt with textile paint. It was really a lot of work and I’m glad I finished it in time. I was so afraid he wouldn’t like it, but he does, he wore it already :)
jersey (cotton and viscose maybe?) and some rib knit
