Kiss Me I’m Irish – DIY T-Shirt
This is a fun DIY that can be done in no time. For this DIY project I got help from the “splendid blender” pen, literally! You can read all about the magic of Splendid Blender pen (aka ‘Woodcrafter’s Marker’) at this awesome tutorial - Villabarnes. In this tutorial you can learn how to use the wonderful technique of transferring any image on fabric, any fabric. This technique uses “Splendid Blender” pen which you can buy from you local craft store (sometimes they are a little hard to find, don’t lose heart if your local craft store hasn’t even heard of it, check other stores and one of them will know about it). The one I used is by the company called “Chartpak“.
Take a print out of your desired image/picture on a laser printer. Laser printer gives a better quality printout and works well with the instructions in this DIY. Transfer the image on to the T-Shirt using the blender pen as per the instructions explained on Villabarnes blog. Once you have the image transferred, use the fabric markers to draw and fill the image with color of your choice.
Happy St. Patrick’s Day 2012.
