For my project I decided to try something that I've never done before, and that is printing a digi image onto fabric. I started by attaching cotton fabric to a sheet of paper with adhesive. Then I ran it through my printer, and voila! Instant fabric image.
I used my copics to color it in since I don't have fabric markers. Although I had some bleeding, for the most part this worked to my advantage cause I think it mixed the colors pretty well and made it look zombie-like. IDK, maybe I'm just trying to tell myself it looks good since this isn't my best coloring job, but I think it works for the purpose of a kids shirt. I don't know if this will be washable or not, so I'll probably end up getting some sort of clear fabric sealer for it.
After coloring, I ironed on some stiff double-sided interfacing and then cut out my image. I left a slight border around the outside of the image. Then I ironed it into the shirt. I finished the image by adding a black fabric paint border. See the smudge by her foot? My daughter got so excited that she touched it before it dried.
To finish off the shirt, I stamped the words "Zombie Lover" using Smeared Ink's Build A Zombie Alphabet set. I colored it in, and then added small green bows to both shoulders of the shirt.
I think it's pretty simple, but super cute! Here's my chicken-pox infected model, complete with tongue sticking out.
Can you tell she's excited and happy with her shirt? So, now that you've seen my zombie lover, head on over to the rest of the gals and check out their awesome projects!
