Every year for the kids birthdays I make them shirts with their age on it...this year was no exception. However, this year the shirt was the easiest I've ever done. And you can do one too...even if you claim you're not crafty. ANYONE can make one of these shirts! Here's a few simple steps.
What you need:
Put some cardboard into your shirt. Then lay the freezer paper on top of your shirt (shiny side down). I roughly traced the outline of the shirt so I would know where I wanted my letters to go. Draw your letters or design and then cut them out. You're basically making a stencil. Then once it's cut out iron the freezer paper to your shirt (shiny side down). You don't want to do a detailed design with this technique because it won't turn out well since the bleach tends to "bleed" a bit. Then with the bleach in your spray bottle just spray the bleach into the cut out area. Let it sit for a little bit while the bleach does its magic and then take the stencil off and spray just a few random sprays to add to the "grunge" effect. Then rinse the shirt once the bleach has done it's magic (or wash it in the machine I just didn't have time) then dry it, wrap it up and call it good!!
We are giving Micah the shirt, some printer paper, markers a new bat and some baseballs. He's taking some grain-free cake doughnuts to school for his classmates and I'm still working on his strawberry cake!
