Salvage Your Tee Shirts

By: Cristin Frank from Eve of Reduction

Do you or your kids have a bunch of stained tee's that you just can't bear to part with?  Well with this Salvage Your Tee Shirts tutorial from Cristin Frank, you can learn how to cover up those pesky stains and create a shirt that's as good as new!  This is a great project for moms with kids who love to play outside.  You can give new life to old clothes and make your clothes last longer by reinventing them and creating new screened images using easy to find materials.

Materials:

  • Tee shirt
  • Freezer paper
  • Hand drawn stencil
  • Scissors
  • Iron
  • Paint

 

Instructions:

  1. Using freezer paper (from a grocery store) cut out the custom image you want to paint on your shirt.

  2. Iron on the freezer paper, shiny side down. Cut a rectangle of freezer paper and place it shiny side up inside the shirt, under where the stencil is placed. Hold the iron on it for 30 - 60 seconds.

  3. Once the freezer paper has successfully stuck to the shirt, paint the stencil. I like to use interior paint like you would use on your wall because a.) I have it on hand and b.) I know it won't come off in the wash. Here I'm using the paint from my kitchen.

  4. When the paint is dry, remove the freezer paper from the front and inside of the shirt. There will be no trace of the paper.
