Bidi Bidi, Anything for Salinas DIY T-Shirt

Share & Follow

Give your old T-Shirt new life with your favorite quote! Mine was inspired by the current athletic sportswear vibe and SELENA QUINTANILLA! Bidi Bidi, Bom Bom!

I, along with my cousins was (honestly, still am) obsessed with her! Anyone that knows me can tell you this. Selena in one way or another is a part of many of my best childhood memories. “Anything for Salinas” is a quote from her movie that Jennifer Lopez stared in 1997, portraying the short life of the Queen of Tejano. Anyone that is or was a fan will recognize!

Start by laying out your shirt on a flat surface, and peel off the letters you will be using for your quote. Then, place the iron-on letters on your shirt (flock side up), play with the spacing and design according to the look you want.

I used a ruler to make sure the iron-on letters were spaced evenly and straight.

Only lay out as many letters as can fit under your iron. Now heat up the iron and press on the iron-on letters for 10 to 15 seconds.

After ironing the entire message in place, flip the item over and press again from the inside. I added the numbers 95 on the back (date of her death) to get that athletic sport wear feel.
