Tuesday DIY #1


DIY Shirts 
With Kids
via
The above photo was kind of the inspiration for this little DIY to settle down the monsters that were wreaking havoc.


What's Needed: 
Fabric Paint
Shirts/Sweaters
Pencil/chalk/fabric pen
Scissors
Brushes
Cup with water
Recyclable plate
Cardboard
Pattern(s) of image(s) desired
(We used a pattern given from the 
inspiration site in the image above)


Gather all your materials.
I used soft fabric paint by the way.


Find images or patterns you would like.
Make sure to insert the piece of cardboard inside of your
shirt/sweater so the paint does not bleed through.


Once you have decided on an image, cut your image and trace
with pencil or chalk lightly- I used a colored fabric pen.
You may also choose to freehand your image.


Let the kids do their own tracing or freehand. 
It gets their creative juices flowing and makes them
all the more proud of their final product.


Once your outline is done its tie to begin painting!


And the final products....

    1. I don't know about toddler but once they're good enough to focus then I guess that's when to start them on the bigger things ^_^

      It took lots of time before I could do anything with my brother and cousins. So no worries, you'll be crafting soon!
