Decorate Children’s Clothes with a Laundry-Marker

Craft:


We recently went to a lovely children’s party where the children all got to decorate t-shirts with fabric paint. My daughter Poppy just loved hers, but decided that she wanted to “add more things” to her t-shirt once we’d returned home.

I was wondering how to easily to this – I don’t have any fabric paint at home – so I thought about using a laundry marker. So easy! I’d purchased one recently in order to name Poppy’s clothes for school.


So for my project this week, I asked Poppy to draw a few things on t-shirts for me! This sort of thing would be such a quick and easy (and lovely!) birthday gift for another child. You can probably also buy coloured permanent fabric markers, I just didn't get to any shops this week!



You could also easily use fleecy-lined jumpers for this project, and they would be a bit more suitable for winter than t-shirts!  I only had t-shirts in my cupboard though.

Actually, come to think of it, some little ‘cars’ driving up a ‘road’ drawn onto the leg of a pair of grey tracksuit pants for a little boy would be SO cute too!

These textas are totally permanent too! I've washed Poppy’s shirt from the party heaps of times and the drawings are here to stay!

Happy drawing!
