Sand Paper Printed T-Shirt
This is sooooo cool!
So I ran across this on Pinterest (totally and utterly addicted)
Here is the link to the original tutorial on this project over at Alpha Mom
All you need is:
Sand Paper (fine is best) I got mine at Dollar Tree
I found this boys X-Small Long Sleeved Shirt at the Dollar Store.
Along with the Sandpaper.
I wrote Jackson's name on the Sand Paper with Crayons.
You have to go over it several times and get the crayon on their nice and thick.
And then I realized...Oh wait, it's going to be backwards on the shirt...Ack!
So then I had to re-write his name but backwards..
and I got so caught up in writing backwards that I forgot to switch out color crayons for different colors.
UGH..Oh well :)
Next I put some cardboard inside the shirt so the crayon wouldn't leak through to the back of the shirt.
I placed the Sand Paper upside down on the front of the shirt and placed two paper towels on top of the Sand Paper.
I ironed for about 30 seconds
I removed the Sand Paper, put the paper towels down on the image and ironed for just a few seconds to get any extra wax off the shirt.
Then you place it in the dryer for approx 20 minutes to set the color.
It is recommended to wash this shirt by itself the first time.
and I got this...Clearly I need to color on the sand paper a little more to get the image darker..however I do think this is a blast! It was super easy, quick and I am going to go try it again :)
I think I'll let my kids do the art work next time though :)
Once they do it, I'll post some pics.
On a totally unrelated topic..My oldest son started Middle School today..yeah Middle School.
I was up half the night due to nerves..I just can't believe my baby is so old..Check out this pic..
I tried getting a picture by the front of the school...yeah no dice..he wasn't having it lol :)
Apparently that is really embarrassing...
Good times :)
Hope you all have a fabulous day!
