So a few weeks back you may remember me adding a link to a T-Shirt I wanted to make from the children to their Dad…well I made it and it was his favourite gift that day!
The template was easy to print off – (the link is in my previous post) and once the 4 pieces of paper were sellotaped together I popped them under a “Fruits of the loom” T-shirt I bought on ebay (£2.19) and got out my new Carioca Fabric Art Pens from Amazon (£2.63) and set to work!!
The template was easy to trace through the T-shirt and the pens were very easy to draw with!
So I drew around the template and added a few extra’s of my own! The original was rather too American for me so I added a Dojo (Jamie is a karate instructor!) and Asda……because Deryn loves shopping there….and finally called it Pascoe Town 🙂
Originally this was meant as a fun present for him & the kids….however once he opened it he loved it and put it on straight away….the kids had fun racing cars over his bck, but hen he kept it on for lunch (not so good with a white top & spaghetti…….) and then wore it to the car boot afterwards!! As he said – No-one else would be wearing the same top! He likes things that are a bit different so I may be adding some more personalised T-shirt posts in the future….
So back to the spaghetti…..Once you have drawn your pattern on the top, you simply turn it inside out & iron the back to keep the colours on….then it can be machine washed; this one obviolsy needed a machine wash. The result – Perfect! Washed on a 30 Degree wash in our machine and came out with no washed out colours or smudges – very impressed!
Looking forward to the next design now!! Please feel free to message us if you have any ideas!
