A couple of weeks ago, I saw an amazing project on Martha. The TV show, I mean, not the person. The theme of the show was a Purple Party…what’s not to love about that? They made some adorable T-shirts for little girls using just Sharpies and alcohol. Really. Look.
The ones on the show were, naturally, pink and purple, but I wanted something Irish-y, so I used green and orange. It’s not as cute, but since it’s a pack of 5 t-shirts, I can make other colors later. You’ll probably be forced to look at those, as well!
After laundering the shirt, place a piece of wax paper inside it, so the markers don’t bleed through. Then draw a simple dot flower wherever you’d like.
Using an eyedropper, drop five or six drops of rubbing alcohol into the center of each flower. If you use too much alcohol, it becomes too saturated and doesn’t spread out correctly. Trust me. Martha did not mention that and I really only have 3 shirts to work with now.
According to Martha, they are colorfast and can be laundered as usual.
How cute is that?
