Heart Paper Doilies(I got it from Walmart valentine decoration section)
Clip Board/Cardboard to place inside the T-shirt
We refashioned two T-shirts
Place a Cardboard or clipboard inside the T-shirt so that the paint won't bleed through. I saw the idea of placing the clipboard at a blog, I don't remember the blog name.
Place the doily on the T-shirt at the place where u want the print. Be careful not to move the doily while painting or you can glue the doily to the shirt with a glue stick and remove it after painting.
Using a sponge brush carefully dab the paint onto the doily in an up and down motion. We did a mistake here we took lot of paint in the brush and moved fast. while painting the border be careful not to go outside the doily
Gently, carefully take/peel out the doily and let your kid adore their creation.
Cut the inner heart shape of the doily and use it as template to cut a heart out of the bubble wrap.
Using the heart bubble wrap, stamp/print in the center of the doily impression
Gently remove the bubble wrap and you will get a beautiful print
I was trying to be over smart:-( and placed the painted doily to make a second print below. But the print didn't come out good.
So we made one more doily impression using a new doily
Since the paint had spread out in the corners of the doily prints, to give a neater look I drew thin outlines of the doily with the fabric paint.
Let it dry and Set the fabric paint according to the manufacturer's instructions.
We made the doily print and bubble wrap print same as above taking special care and correcting the previous errors(Neater finish). After that we made Pipe cleaner snowflake prints on top and bottom of the heart.
I would say you have to try this fun,easy,do able project with your kids. CJ was very proud of her refashioned T-shirts because of her effort and of course who won't love to show off their creation
We are taking part in the Collaborative Heart Project Fundraiser organized by Jaime at Hands on as we grow and contributing this project for the event.
