The photograph above is my attempt to make something creative with a nautical theme. I wanted to design something that could be given to a child (boy or girl) for a present. I was asked to make some things that could be sold for a nautical charity.
I already had some spare plain t-shirts, especially blue ones which were left over from my daughter's crafty birthday party. I thought I would try to use them up instead of them gathering dust. I hand drew an outline of a boat on A4 paper, then went over it with a marker. Once the marker had dried, I placed this inside the t-shirt so I could see the outline. (I always place some card between the front and back of the t-shirts so the fabric pen/paint doesn't go through to the other side) Then I traced over the outline onto the t-shirt using fabric pens. Then I coloured in the boat with fabric pens too. Once finished a simple iron over the picture and the t-shirt is finished. Very quick and simple.
I am now looking for other ideas for things to make. Does anybody have any ideas? I am looking at ideas that won't cost very much and won't take up much time. As I said I am not profiting from this, so looking for something with a quick turnaround and not costly. One option would be the 10 Minute Headband that might be a good seller for the girls. However it would be nice to have a choice for the boys!
