“Just do them” a Quick & Easy Boobie shirt…breast cancer awareness!

By  | 

NellieBellie:"Just Do Them" breast cancer awareness shirt.

In honor of Breast Cancer awareness month I wanted to create a craft honoring boobies. I wanted something silly, fun, actually wearable, and…educational. I wanted to have fun with it but to serve a purpose.  Kapeesh?

I’m all about t-shirts with sayings. They are walking billboards! But come on…some of those shirts need to stay on greeting cards. So, I really, really wanted to stay away from tacky.

So, I reached for…



Get it??…I didn’t want tacky so I reached for puffy paint. Ha!

Well, at least I’m giggling. Okay, moving on…


I made 3 boobs on my shirt. Lined up nice and straight. Perfect, perky boobs. How did I get perfect circles?? Simple, I used a duct tape roll as a guide. That darn duct tape is so useful!


After I created my 3 boobs I added arrows for the various directions a woman can use to give herself a self-exam. I’m telling you…I’m going to get a Nobel Peace Prize for this shirt. Saving the world people…saving the world!

And just to be silly, I put a Nike swoosh and the words “Just Do Them”. I know…I’m here all week people. All week.

Now go forth and do good! Be silly AND save the boobs!

Just to be clear…I’m not making light of breast cancer. It’s serious. It’s deadly. There isn’t a person on earth that hasn’t been touched, or couldn’t BE touched by breast cancer. I stand with all the women who have survived, are surviving, will survive, and have survived in a way we have yet to understand…death. I choose to use humor to bring awareness to this terrible cancer. How will you help? Because I hope you do!

      Thanks! You know, I’m getting requests for them. How strange is that :). It’s fun! I wore it the other day, washed it and wore it again!

    Love your boobie shirt (and wanted to write boobie in a comment – that’s a first!) Seriously though your shirt is perfect and thanks for the very important reminder to examine our breasts too.

      Isn’t it great to have an excuse to write boobie :). So childish!! I agree…I hope it’s a reminder!

    Dumbfounded here that you came up with this…… the shirt is seriously awesome. There is nothing wrong with a reminder to self exam. I don’t think you made light of anything, I think both the shirt and topic came across serious. This shirt could go viral you know. A++

    I’m ready to win a booby shirt! Great job! My sister just endured a radical bi lateral mastectomy less than a month ago and my other sister just finished for 31st radiation treatment. Great idea! I want a booby shirt! Love, Me ; )
