I made one tremendous mistake with this project…I let my four year old watch me do it. This will not end well I predict. After all, she saw, with her own eyes, her own mother drawing on a shirt…let the festivities begin. Anyone know how I can salvage all the laundry that will foreseeably be ruined by ink in the near future?
I made this shirt a while ago (tutorial HERE), but I thought it looked rather bland and unpleasantly similar to a nursing scrub top. I became transfixed upon the idea of adding a print to it…and using a gold paint pen, I did just that.
It began as tiny polka dots…and then my paint pen had a hiccup all over my shirt (don’t press down while your drawing!)…so random triangles became a necessity. I’m glad they did too, because the small dots are hardly visible from a distance.
I think I’m safely out of the realm of nurse scrub uniform world…time alone will tell how safe I am from four year old artistry on all my other clothing however. (You can find the tutorial for the painted crochet necklace I’m wearing HERE. Similar designs are available for purchase HERE.)
Matthew 19:14 But Jesus said, Suffer little children, and forbid them not, to come unto me: for of such is the kingdom of heaven.
