Day 27 - Ramadan T-Shirt Designing
My children love T-Shirt Designing - they have done this a few times in the past and we thought why not make one to celebrate their Fasting in Ramadan this year! My youngest has been wearing this long sleeved T-Shirt that she hand designed all by herself when she has been doing her half day fasting attempts. My eldest has been completing the full day fast this year!
- Plain T-Shirt (we used long sleeved ones!)
- Fabric Pens/Sharpie Pens
- Card or something to place inside of T-shirt to stop colour going through to the back part of the T-Shirt.
My Girls designed their own T-Shirts themselves.
Step 1) Find a Plain T-shirt - always best to wash it first if it is new!
Step 2) Place some card or something similar inside the shirt - so that the pen colour will not transfer through to the other side of the T-shirt. Do this for the arms if you are designing on the arms!
Step 3) Using the pens (we used both Fabric pens and Sharpie Pens) Start writing/drawing your design onto the T-shirt. You could try to draw a design first on paper.
Step 4) Once you have your completed design - Apply heat by ironing over the design to seal the pen ink.
Step 5) You can now wear your unique T-Shirt!
You could design other clothes but remember cotton is the best for Fabric colouring.
Don't Forget that if you have made any of the Ramadan Crafts that I have blogged about, then please send in a photograph and I will publish this on my blog and my Facebook Page! You can send this via email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or post on my Facebook Page Karimas-Crafts directly.
