Can't afford a vacation to the beach? Bring the calming blue waters to you with this fabric craft t-shirt from I Love to Create. This shirt is just too cool, so make it today!



 

Materials:

  • Tulip® One-Step Fashion Dye™
    • Turquoise
    • Blue
  • Tulip® Surface Cover™
  • T-shirts – gray (guy’s) and white (girl’s)
  • Fishnet and lace yardage
  • Small spray bottle
  • Paper towels
     

Steps:

Guy Shirt

  1. Wash gray T-shirt to remove sizing then dry in dryer; do not use fabric softener.
     
  2. Cover work surface with Surface Cover. Place shirt right side down on prepared surface and smooth flat. Cover right shoulder with fishnet piece as shown, spreading netting for more open spaces then smoothing flat onto shirt.
     
  3. Wearing gloves from dye box, fill Blue dye bottle with water to line indicated. Replace cap tightly then shake bottle until dye is thoroughly mixed. Carefully pour dye into spray bottle and shake again.
     
  4. Start spray on paper towels then spray over netting as shown. Hold bottle about 12” above shirt then lightly mist, working over sections several times – a heavy single spray may seep under netting.
     
  5. Carefully remove netting, flip over shirt, position netting in place then repeat dye step.
     
  6. Cover T-shirt with Surface Cover and let set 4 to 6 hours. Wash in washing machine on a large load setting with a small amount of laundry soap. Dry in dryer.
