We love doing crafts at our house. My kids especially love making things that they can wear. It’s a thing of pride to showcase your artwork:-)
Well, this time, for making shirts, I decided to try something different.
I put my daughter’s Crayola Light Table INSIDE the shirt, put the coloring sheet on the the light table inside the shirt and turned it on…
I was THRILLED that my ‘in theory’ worked! The light table perfectly illuminated the coloring sheet through the t-shirt!!!!
I used my STAINED by Sharpie brush tip fabric markers to trace the coloring sheets and fill it all in.
We had such a blast! My kids LOVE their shirt<3!!! The best thing is that I can buy a 5 pack of t-shirts for $7 at Walmart and MAKE it into whatever character t-shirt I need it to be. My son currently only wants to wear shirts with Captain America and Ironman on it…instead of paying $8-$10 per shirt, I can make a weeks worth:-). For my daughter, she can now have whatever obscure character she wants on a t-shirt! Love love love! She wanted Princess Amber from Sophia the First with a unicorn<3. You betcha we can do that!!!! Insert mommy happy dance!!!!
Is it perfect? No. Am I professional artist? Far from it! However, I can trace with markers:-)
Remember…They Will Love Your Effort<3!!!
