iLovetoCreate Classroom Doodles T-Shirt

Symbolizing the creative, wandering mind of a child in school, the iLovetoCreate Classroom Doodles T-Shirt is created by making a fabric paint binder paper base and then letting your creativity soar with fabric markers. Get the kids involved in the creativity for a back-to-school T-shirt that's as fun to look at as it is for them to wear!

Project Instructions

  • 1
    Let paint dry between applications. Project time does not include this drying time.

    Place t-shirt on a flat surface. Use tape to tape off 1/2 inch horizontal stripes. Begin just under the arms and work out toward the top and bottom of the t-shirt.
  • 3
    Trace and cut out a 2-1/2 inch circle template from your household object; these will represent binder holes on the finished t-shirt. Tape to t-shirt along the left side.
  • 4
    Insert Fashion Form or piece of cardboard inside t-shirt and place on a flat covered surface. Mask off any exposed areas on or around tee with paper towels to avoid overspray.
  • 5
    Lightly spray t-shirt with the Light Blue fabric spray paint from inside the multi-pack.
  • 6
    Remove tape and re-tape one vertical 1/2 inch stripe down the left side of the t-shirt about 3-4 inch in from the left edge of the t-shirt.
  • 7
    Re-tape circle template and again cover all other exposed areas of t-shirt with paper towels leaving only the vertical stripe exposed.
  • 8
    Lightly spray vertical stripe with Christmas Red fabric spray paint. Remove tape.
  • 9
    Use different colored markers to doodle on t-shirt. Use the photo as a guide or make your own designs and use your preferred colors.
