I am LOVING this whole freezer paper method. I made a Conan O’Brien shirt for Kevin a few days ago. It turned out really great – but was a little hard for my first one. Since the moment I found out about this cool process, I have been thinking of what else I can do. Then, as the bird was enjoying her daily dose of ‘Penguins of Madagascar‘, it came to me. A penguin shirt for Lucie. She loves those silly penguins! (OK, so do I)
I took pictures of the whole process – but if you want a better tutorial, go here. This is where I found out how to do it. The lady at the Made site is AWESOME!! Also, this was SOOOO easy. I was completely done, by the time she was finished watching one episode. Seriously, it took me like 15 minutes from start to finish. (Because the bird was watching toons and the bean was taking a nap.)
Then I painted it black. (remember to put a cloth inside the shirt, so it doesn’t bleed through)
Then, I dried it with the blow dryer and peeled the paper off!
Whalaa. Done and done.
I let it dry a little more while we played outside and then ironed it(with a cloth over it) to set the paint. Easy as pie. When I showed the bird, she jumped up and down with glee exclaiming “penguins!!” Perfect!
