Introduction: How to Make an Awesome Tshirt

How to make an awesome tshirt with fabric paint.

Step 1: Supplies

Supplies you'll need:

Tshirt
Cardboard and Poster Board
Cutting Mat and Knife
Fabric Paint + Foam Brush
Iron
Aluminum Foil

Step 2: Step 1: Make the Stencil

Using a Poster Board About the Size of your Tshirt, Draw your Design and carefully cut it out with your knife.

Step 3: Step 2: Prepare the Shirt for Painting

Place the Cardboard inside your shirt (to prevent the ink bleeding through) and tape your stencil to the front of your shirt.

Step 4: Step 3: Painting

Apply the fabric paint to the tshirt with firm pressure. Do not use brushing motion as this may peel up the sides of your stencil and create an uneven boundary. We don't want that!

Step 5: Step 4 Heat Seal the Paint With Iron

After the tshirt is completely dry, remove stencil and cardboard. Place Aluminum Foil on ironing board, then place tshirt face down on top of foil. Iron for about 3 minutes.

    Did you draw those images freehand, or on the PC?

    I drew these freehand and then colored them on the computer.
