Inspired Wednesdays 2/13

Welcome to the second installment of Inspired Wednesday's.  If you missed last week (our launch) go check it out HERE.

Today I want to share a fun and super easy craft project with you.  If your kids can draw or color they are capable of completing this project.

While shopping the other day we saw some Crayola Brand Fabric Markers ($3 and change for 10 markers!) in the coloring isle and my S just had to try them out.  So we found a tShirt ($3 and change in the craft department) and decided that we could try them out.
The front of her shirt.  I am sure you are not shocked that it is horses!!
The back of the shirt.

The directions on the box are simple... put something between the layers of the shirt (we used cardboard).  Color until your design is complete and then heat set.  They offer 2 ways to heat set on the box of markers we bought but I suggest you read the directions on your box and follow them for color retention.

After the shirt was heat set S wore it all day long!  She loved the project so much we went that next evening and bought another shirt for her and one for her brother.

N's tShirt.  He has taken up a liking of turtles.
The back of N's shirt.  I helped him with the word Turtles.  Otherwise it is his own creation.
NOW!  On to the fun stuff...

  1. This is really fun idea, and you could do so much with those markers! Brainstorming now .....

    1. YES! They even have some that are "bright" to draw on dark colored fabrics. They have small tote bags that I think would be fun.

  2. Hi there,
    I saw your post on the FB page, Blogging Christian HS Moms, and love this idea...did I link up an appropriate post?
    I also have posts with other art lessons, etc...was not sure if they are appropriate.
    I'd love it if you could consider joining my hop.."Memoir Mondays"
    If you're interested, here is one of my Memoir Monday posts, in which there's a link for the "scoop" on Memoir Mondays.
    and here's another:
    Love to see yo around the blogosphere..
    Thank you for hosting this hop.

    1. That link is perfect! You are welcome to link up with the others as well. I am on my way to check out your blog and your Memoir Mondays! Thank you, Chris for linking up!!

  3. Very cool idea with the markers! My girls would love to color on clothes, I am sure. :)

    1. You should try it! Just be sure to put them out of reach when you are done!! lol

  4. I'm excited....I think this would be a great thing to have my nephew do........He is 4, and I think it would be great to get three shirts and let him do one for himself, and one for each of his parents. Thanks for the idea!

    1. That is such a great idea, Lynne. I would love to hear about it when you complete it!
