Kid Art → Amazing Accessories
Posted on December 29 2015
How to turn your kid’s works of arts into awesome accessories.
Kids are radical little humans. And they make tons of art. It looks great on the fridge or the walls of their room, but we discovered that it looks even cooler on a killer phone case, a tote, or a sweatshirt. And it makes it easier to show off around town, at dinner parties, and in line at the grocery store.
Full disclosure, we got the idea when our founder’s wife, Sharon Garofalow, who did it first and wrote about it on her blog, Cupcakes and Cutlery. She transformed her son’s construction paper mouth into a stash sack and a phone case. What’s even cooler is that he felt so proud to see her using — an actual product — with his art on it. It doesn’t get better than that.
It’s as easy as making any Yoshirt: just snap it, make it, wear it! Here’s how she did it:
Before: The Original Art
Get the art into your phone. Simply scan it or take a picture. Sharon got fancy and did some touch ups in Photoshop.
Crop it square if you’re going to tile it. You can do this with your phone’s photo editor. (Feel free to skip this step if you’re just going to use a single image of the art.)
Go crazy. Try tiling it. Put it on a stash sack, a t-shirt, a cell phone case. This is the last step and it’s over when you love the result.
After: Stash Sack featuring a single mouth & Phone Case with a lot of mouths
Super cool. We’d love to see that mouth art tiled on a pair of leggings, too. So, what do you think you’ll make? Give it a try and then tag us with #Yoshirt on Instagram to share your creation when it’s done!
