T-shirt painting and printing

I have loved having crafty time with Sprog over the half term holidays and I was really lucky to be asked by the lovely people at www.buytshirtsonline.co.uk to give some t-shirt painting a whizz with Sprog. At 18 months old he was never going to be able to produce something spectacular by himself so with a helping hand he produced a ‘Painting t-shirt’! We were sent a great pack with t-shirt paints, a t-shirt each and an iron on transfer each. tshirt 1So here’s how we created our ‘masterpieces’. 1. I created messages on the backs of the two t-shirts. I was surprised at how easily the paint came out of the tube and how smooth it was. I could have used the whole lot there and then without Sprog.

2. When the paint had all dried, I set up our painting station and Sprog got stuck in. He chose which colour he wanted each time, I put in on to our pallet and he dipped, painted, splodged his way into making 2 awesome designs.

3. When he went to sleep, I got the iron out! Don’t fall over in shock people, I do know what one is and how to use it… I just choose not to in my normal life. And this was evident as I failed pretty miserably at ironing the transfer on to my t-shirt, I was much better second time round at holding it on for longer! tshirt 5 So here’s the finished article… lovely comfy t-shirts personalised for Sprog for him and I, and I love them! Thank you ever so much to the guys at www.buytshirtsonline.co.uk for sending us the shirts, we really enjoyed playing and making something lovely with them!
