|I saw this shirt at the GAP here Lovely right? Hmm I fell in love with the concept, and even though 30 bucks isn’t horrible, I knew I could make it for much less and then my daughter would be wearing my own “art” and not the GAP art. As a bonus I could customize it the way I want it. So I broke the “how to” into two days since making the fabric takes time and then it has to dry and what not. SO today we will make the fabric and tomorrow the shirt…|
|I picked up 3 fabric markers at the craft store. I used red black and silver, but you can use what you like.
For my fabric I picked up a light weight cotton in white. (it was cheap and I had a coupon so it cost me less than 2 bucks! Score)
|Then add a petal shape.|
|And another petal shape|
|And a third petal shape. They don’t have to be perfect or even.|
|Then add three larger petals that overlap the first three.|
|Continue adding petal shapes that overlap until you have the size that you want.|
|Then I took the grey and added a little scribble in the petals to add the “messy” effect.|
|Continue drawing roses however you like around the fabric. As you can see each one of mine is a little different, I don’t think this has to be perfect, or identical, just have fun with it.|
|Then I sprinkled in a few red roses… you know as if she painted a few red…|
|Here is the piece of fabric when I was done. Lovely roses scattered about…
So have some fun creating your own print tomorrow we will make a lovely shirt!

Oh I love what you are doing so far and can't wait to see more. I love seeing someone being artistic in any way.
Pretty awesome so far. I can't wait to see the rest.
can´t wait to see it. painted rose on shirt is total IN now
I think you probably got some of the art gene too. The fabric turned out cute – I like the idea of creating your own sketches….and the finished project is adorable! Thanks for the tutorial!
Wow, who says you didn't get the art gene? This is very artsy-fartsy! Love it!<br />Val
