I am planning a big sister gift bag for my diva. want to get her a few things to make her still feel special on the day of baby’s birth and at the same time a little something to make her feel equiped for her little baby sister. I dont have the whole bag planned as yet. so just adding things to my list as we go. First item on the agenda a Big sister t-shirt that she can wear in hospital. I made 2 a long sleeve and short sleeve. So it will depend on the weather as baby is due in May which is the start of winter here.
- What you will need:Inexpensive plain t-shirt
- Fabric paint of your choice
- Clipboard or and hard board you can clip the t-shirt on
- dressmakers pencil
- Thin paint brush
How to make itClip the t-sirt to the clipboard so you can be able to write on the t-shirt. Then mark roughly where you want to write or draw your design with the dressmakers pencil/chalk. (this was indeed harder than i thought). then use the fabric paint and thin paint brush and paint over the penciled design. and let dry. Once dry iron the t-shirt on the reverse side to make it permanent.
While i was doing this i got out an old t-shirt for my diva to do the same on.But skipping all the other steps i just let her have free rain on what she wanted to paint on her t-shirt.and this is the end resultthink i need to buy more plain inexpensive t’s and let her do her own magic to them.
