Another week is coming to an end. Do you have any crafting plans or projects you are working on this weekend? In case you need a suggestion, here’s two. One of our craft blogger friends, Jennifer, from Always in Wonder, recently made these two retro inspired t-shirt designs. Jennifer was able to create these designs using Plaid’s Simply Screen DIY Kit. She made these t-shirts for her two little one. They are so precious This is a great project to re-create for members of your family, and also for yourself. Click here to see how Jennifer made these shirts. Have a great weekend and enjoy!
Is it just me, or does it seem like we get through one holiday and then another is quick to come right afterwards? I find it so difficult to keep up sometimes! That’s why I appreciate simple crafts like this one – crafts that aren’t too complicated and make a big splash. We’re only a few weeks out from St. Patrick’s Day, so you might want to craft up a little something to wear. This shirt uses only one FolkArt Fabric color and the pattern is provided, so it’s easy-peasy. Go here for the project.
Are you a snow princess? I would say that I definitely am – I LOVE cold weather! Even if you don’t love cold weather, if you are a princess and it’s winter, you qualify. That means you too can paint this t-shirt (and wear it) with FolkArt Fabric. I’m going to be honest, I’m not that great at freehand painting, which is why I particularly like that this uses stencils to “make the magic happen.” It’s also nice that it only uses two colors. Find the complete instructions here.
Always wanted to paint on fabric, but not sure where to start? Adrianna from crafterhours recently got ahold of some FolkArt Fabric Paint and Simply Stencils and started playing – and the results are fabulous! If you want to do some fabric painting, read Adrianna’s review for some tips and tricks. Not only did she paint using the stencils, but she got crazy and freehanded some very cute onsies!

I love customizing my own fashion – especially with paint. The only issue is that I’m not the smoothest operator while painting on fabric, and I’m scared to mess up. When I saw this, I thought “I can do it!” This painted bird tee was spotted on Geninne’s Art Blog, and it actually uses one of free embroidery designs as the pattern. Read more about the project here, and then just so you know we have some awesome FolkArt Fabric paint for a painted t-shirt occasion such as this.
I’ve been interested in painting on textiles recently, and I have to give major props to the Simply Screen line because I LOVE the paint! The line is great because it has vibrant colors and stays soft after being washed. I’m not just saying that either – I’ve actually tried it and it’s the best textile paint I’ve used to date. In addition to the paint, there are several screens available with many designs (like the one above). I really like easy and quick when I’m making gifts, and Simply Screen is perfect.

Happy upcoming Memorial Day! If you are going on vacation, have fun and relax. If you are looking for a craft project to do, then this guest post by Heather of Dollar Store Crafts on Make and Takes will be right up your alley. Heather stamps on used t-shirts and onesies with acrylic paint, giving them a second life. She even gets the kids involved! I too love imperfect stamping, and think her technique is fabulous. Visit here to see it.
