Like most dads, my husband is king of the free t-shirt. He does not discriminate. Doesn’t matter the size or color, he will wear it until holes appear.
My daughter had an idea to get my husband a t-shirt for Father’s Day and I have to say while it’s a simple idea, it’s a gift we know he will love.
I took her idea one step further and thought it’d be cool to make the design on a blank shirt.
This DIY gift is a twist on a fun craft I found on Pinterest from Carla at Small + Friendly.
DIY Toddler Made T-Shirt for Father’s Day
Blank t-shirt in color of your choice, can be found at craft store
Fabric markers or in a pinch, Sharpie markers
Painters tape or masking tape
Piece of hard cardboard to place under t-shirt
While using the painters tape, create a large square and block off a section of the front of the t-shirt. Doing this helps your child stay in the lines or area where the design will be.
Next, use the tape and create a number 1 and place that in the center of the square.
Alternatively, you can use the tape to create any kind of design you’d like.
Once the tape has been applied, slide the large piece of cardboard under the t-shirt, so your child has a hard surface to work on.
Next, supervise your child while they draw with the fabric markers on the t-shirt.
