I waited until nap-time for Baby, then we got into it. After the girls picked/drew their pictures, I cut them out on freezer paper, then ironed the freezer paper onto the shirts. I cut up a sponge, squirted out the paint and let them have at it! Was it ever fun and the girls were so tickled to wear their art!
Middle working on her sun rays.
That was a chore to cut out. The exacto knife came in handy here!
We used acrylic paint, it's what I had on hand. I'm told that it will be fine in the laundry, so we shall see about that. I line-dry my clothes, so it should last longer than usual.
If you use fabric paint, you're supposed to iron after the paint dries to set the paint.
This was so easy, that I plan to do up a couple of my own shirts next! This is a great way to give shirts with stains a second life-- cover up the stains with your picture!
