Celebrating Dad-to-Be’s First Father’s Day
by Lauren Kay Weber
I wasn’t going to post this until after Father’s Day, since the hubs reads this blog, but I was so excited about how well this project turned out that I begged Josh to let me give him his Father’s Day gift early. I’ve always been like that… Christmases and birthdays celebrated early are a Lauren Kay tradition when I feel like I’ve hit the I’ve-found-the-perfect-gift sweet spot.
…And this time, I think I’ve hit the mother of all sweet spots. And, better yet, I made it all myself.
I mean, I didn’t spin the cotton on my own loom or anything, but it’s still pretty sweet that I made this by hand, no?
…BUT WAIT! That’s not all!
Couldn’t you just DIE?! I know I could. I’m just simply thrilled with how they turned out. They feel just like professionally silk-screened shirts.
Want to know how I made it? You got it. But, first, you need to have some supplies on hand:
- One Adult Shirt and One Onesie (I chose both to have a similar color palette)
- Tulip Soft Matte Fabric Paint – You can find an example here, however, there are a lot more options in store.
- Foam Paint Brushes
- Freezer Paper – You can find rolls of this in the same aisle as the aluminum foil.
- Cutting Board
Thanks to a sale at Joann’s and having some supplies on hand, I was able to make this whole project for less than $5.
