Help your kids make their own T-shirts Tutorial

We decided to do a craft around here since we had a spare Monday with MLK Day.  The kids made their own t-shirt designs. It was pretty esay which is nice.

Here's Phoebe in her homemade t-shirt.  Doesn't it look fantastic?  Oh yes, it does. 

MAKING YOUR OWN T-SHIRTS

Supplies needed:

Jolee's Easy Image Transfer Sheets
T-shirts
Printer/Scanner
Iron



1.  Let the kids draw some fantastic kid drawings. 

Elliot and a friend drew fantastic pictures.  Elliot got Ed Emberley's Big Orange Drawing Book that gives really cool directions for drawing all sorts of animals and figures.  He drew an amazing tiger from it. 

2.  Either scan in or photocopy the picture onto the paper. (Make sure you follow the direcitons on your printer for the right side of the paper.)  We found out that the yellow didn't work that well for our printer and that scanning worked better than printing. 

3. Peel off the back side of the paper. 

4. Iron for 20 seconds.


Hint:  Scanning seemed to work better than printing.  Also, darker colors and bigger designs (such as Phoebe's) seemed to work better as well.  


And last of all, the best assistant of all- Baby Nye Kitty that is not so baby any more.
