Fishing and guys: they just go naturally together! These adorable stick-man shirts are the perfect fit for those lazy fishing days.
What you'll need:
How to make it:
- Wash and dry the shirts. Do not use fabric softener. Iron if necessary.
- Insert cardboard inside the shirt to protect the back of the shirt from any paint seepage and to provide a solid work surface.
- Either do this step outside, or be sure that you have significant protection for your table or counter with a plastic tablecloth or newspapers. Shake the fabric spray paint for at least 15 seconds, then spray on sky and grass. Let this dry for about 40 minutes.
- Using Pattern 1 and Pattern 2 as a guide (or freehand it), draw on stick person LIGHTLY with a pencil.
- Use squeezable fabric paint to draw on your stick person in the colors of your choice. Color in the large areas like the fish, shirt and pants by drawing in simple squiggly lines.
- Carefully put the shirts somewhere out of reach to dry overnight.
- Fabric spray paint is available at craft stores. You can also skip this step and just draw the stick figures.
- Choose any hobby your child and his dad like to do together if fishing is not their thing.
- Follow instructions on the fabric paint package for washing and drying your new shirts.
