Supplies:

  • Plain tee or tank
  • Fabric paints in a color combination of your choice
  • Pencil with eraser
  • Masking tape
  • Scrap paper
  • Wipes or rag
  • Cupcake liners

alt

Take the scrap paper and lay it inbetween the layers of your tee so the paint won’t bleed through onto the other side.

alt

Using the tape, map out a few rows on your tee. This isn’t completely necessary, and it doesn’t have to be perfect,  but I found that it made it easier to have a guideline for stamping my dots.

alt

Put a bit of each color paint in each cupcake liner

alt

Using the eraser of your pencil, start stamping using the tape as a guide. You can make any design you want, but just try to be consistent.

alt

Wipe your eraser off on a wipe or towel inbetween colors

alt

Continue stamping your rows of colors. Don’t worry too much about them being perfect. Personally, I kind of like the way the stamping it uneven and handmade.

When your’e done, let the paint dry and then pull off the masking tape and pull out the scrap paper between the layers

Ta da! Pair with your favorite outfit and you’re ready for spring!
