This week at SMC, the challenge it open to do anything you'd like. Well, I had these tee-shirt my boys outgrew but I have a niece that should be able to wear them. But a plain white shirt isn't a fun gift so I decided to dress them up with the cutest images around. I have an inkjet printer, so I just printed one image that was enlarged to fit, sprayed a little water on the paper, then ironed it on the shirt.

Then I went over the black lines with black sharpie, and colored it with my sharpie and bic markers.To finished it off, I ironed it again thinking that would heat set the colors but it caused the blue patches to bleed. I guess I should have let it dry longer before I tried to heat set just to make sure that it was truly dry. (Alcohol markers...who knew they wouldn't dry quickly on cotton)
Here's the finished product and the other projects






So then I washed the shirts since I had bleeding from the ink. Ink then went over all the others in other spots! So I decided to take my markers and decorate each one differently to disguise the mistake smudge.
I like the speckles with Jovi the best.



Head on over to the Sew Many Cards Challenge blog and check out the rest of the NEW design team's projects. Then play along for a chance to win 3 digi images from KLM designs.
Come back next week for our May release blog hop. I can't wait to show you what I'm concocting.
