Fabric paint is so much fun to work with. You can do so much with it, no matter your skill level. Ever since I discovered fabric paint, I can't stop. And this may be my favorite thing to make yet.
I came up with the Necklace Tee as a way to accessorize my little girl without the actual jewelry which, as you know, is not so safe for little ones who put EVERYTHING in their mouths. This project is quick and sewing-optional, which makes it great for a quick craft-fix - love those!
- A plain t-shirt
- Fabric paint (I prefer Tulip brand matte fabric paint)
- Round objects of different sizes to use as a stamp - I used the end of a white crayon (use white so you don't mark your shirt), a marker cap, and the end of a Sharpie marker cap
- Freezer paper or something to insert inside your shirt so the paint won't leak
- Needle and coordinating threa
Step 1: Prepare your shirt for painting.
First, turn your shirt inside out and iron some freezer paper to the inside front of the shirt, shiny side down. This will help protect the shirt from any fabric paint that might leak through. If you don't have freezer paper, you could always just put a piece of cardboard or wax paper inside the shirt.Use your different-sized stamps to continue making circles along the front of the shirt. Don't worry about making sure each circle is completely filled in. The inconsistencies and fading make the design look even better. You can make as few or as many rows as you want. You can also overlap the necklaces in some places to give them a "layered" look. You want variety in size and positioning of each necklace, so keep that in mind as you stamp.
