Pinch Proof! T-Shirts


Check out this post and other crafty inspiration over at our new blog!


Good Afternoon and Happy St. Patrick’s Day!  I have another quick and easy project for you today… Pinch Proof St. Patrick’s Day T-Shirts with fabric paint!Header

Remember post a few weeks ago for our Top 17 St. Patrick’s Day Crafts!  I was so inspired that I decided we absolutely must have {PINCH PROOF} t-shirts!  This past Veteran’s Day, we experimented with fabric paint as a kid’s craft and had so much fun… so we decided to do it again!

I picked up everything I needed from my local Hobby Lobby: plain t-shirt, fabric paint, sponges and adhesive vinyl. The design is available for purchase in the Silhouette Store (did you know all designs are 50% off right now?!?).  I measured the width of my shirt and enlarged the image to my desired size.

Once you weed and transfer your vinyl design onto your t-shirt, it’s a simple task of filling in the design with fabric paint.  TIP: don’t forget to insert a barrier on the inside of your shirt to keep the paint from bleeding through to the back.

      Thanks for the awesome feature! My boys love making and wearing their own shirts. When they get older, we might move on to HTV, but I don’t trust them with the iron just yet, LOL.

    That is so cool! I never would have thought to sponge paint on the fabric paint! This opens a whole world of stenciled fabrics to me! Thanks for linking it up to Snickerdoodle Sunday!
