Fabric markers and some white T’s are the ingredients for this easy project. It is a simple gift for kids to make and the will love wrapping it up for Dad. A portrait of Dad or the child makes the shirt extra special. (Ada drew herself with lots of long hair at the bottom of Pappy’s shirt). A piece of cardboard inserted into the shirt helps make a flat drawing surface and prevents marker from soaking into the back. Be sure to set the artwork with heat before washing, per directions on fabric markers.
One of our favorite gifts this year was a set of fabric markers and shirts to decorate. The kids had a blast and got to keep the markers and wear the shirts. Thanks Aunt Emily! There are lots of fabric marker options, and the glitter pens were especially popular. Look for ones that dry quickly without ironing so the designs can be worn right away.
