In that hope, I took a tshirt that greyed in the wash, and pepped it up by adding Breton stripes with a Dylon Fabric Painting Broad Nib Pen. As you can see, we’ve gone for the artisan look. Oh alright – I was rubbish at it. Drawing straight even lines on jersey is hard! Disappointed but not disheartened – the final tshirt has *some* impact…
Next time, I’ll
- stretch the fabric really tightly over cardboard to minimise stretch/drag
- mask off the stripes with tape for a more even line
- draw *down* the fabric (not across) – this will take longer but gives a more even colour application because the fabric stretches less
- practise writing her name better!
