I’m SO excited for today you guys!! Fourth of July is my favorite holiday and today I’m using a great new product to show you how I made my daughter an adorable DIY Fourth of July Shirt. I love creating new crafts for my home, but creating shirts and fashion is truly a unique process because you can personalize what you want to wear in any way that you like. Today I wanted to show you how I took a plain white tee shirt from Target and created this cute Stamped Flag Fourth of July Girl’s T-Shirt for my daughter. This was an easy craft and you can choose any stamps or paint colors you like to make it your own! Let’s jump into this easy DIY Fourth of July Shirt!
DIY Fourth of July Shirt
Have you seen prices on July 4th outfits for kids? They’re adorable, but they are pricey! Today I thought I’d play around with Plaid’s new collection and stamp my daughter a little t-shirt for the fourth. Check out how simple it was to make…. You need the Plaid Fabric Creations™ stamps and colors I use in this tutorial, but check out all the options they have for designs!
Fabric Creations Soft Fabric Ink is super soft fabric ink that is the perfect formulation for stamping, stenciling and brushing on fabric. It is machine washable, waterbased, and non-toxic.
For my shirt, I used two simple stamps, along with red and navy blue soft fabric paint. I also used their stamping mats, along with the sponges. I picked up a t-shirt from Target for under $5 and washed it and prepared it for stamping. Slide the stamping pad between the layers of your fabric and keep it smooth. Grab a paper plate and squirt a little soft fabric paint on there. Using the sponge that can be purchased with the stamps, you’ll want to dab paint gently onto the stamps so it’s coated, but not so saturated that the stamp loses it’s design. From there, you gently press the design down onto the shirt and pull up lightly to be sure that it doesn’t bleed. After that I did the same with the arrow stamp I had on hand… Towards the end I had to wash the arrows off and just do one or two of them so that everything came out evenly on the ends. It didn’t come out perfect, but I kind of love it for that very reason!! Here’s the end result…
So cute and so simple, right? And the Fabric Creations paint does beautifully in the wash!
