Crafty Days

100_3284A couple of months ago we decided it was high time to get a little creative!  My sister and her two children and my brother and his son were at my parents for a visit.  So we got all our chilluns' together and we decorated some T-shirts.  The first step in this decorated T-shirt process was to mix flour and water together until it was the consistency of a soft frosting.  I put the goo into squeezable bottles and let the kids go crazy!  Some used stencils to trace around, others just drizzled and doodled.  Here's Jacob's floured "T".

The next morning we sprayed the shirts with fabric paint.  Once again setting them out to dry.  When the paint was dry, everyone sat down to do the labor intensive part- pick off the baked on flour.  It took a little while, but it was worth it.  We got some really cool looking shirts!
