Nowadays, organic products and T-shirts are fast becoming popular among people. If you are a nature friendly guy and truly believe in an eco-friendly lifestyle then why not make an organic T-shirt of your own. The major ingredient, of course, is eco-friendly fabric also known as organic knit fabric that you can find at an eco-friendly fabric store.
Create Organic Shirt Using a Fabric Pen or Marker
Spread the T-shirt on a table and tape the design on a piece of cardboard. Make sure that the cardboard is a bit larger than the front of your T-shirt so that it slightly stretches the T-shirt if you place it between the T-shirt. Now, tape your design onto the cardboard and trace or mark the outline of the T-shirt with the help of a fabric pen. If you need the outline or border to remain intact, then use a permanent marker, otherwise use a washable fabric marker or pen. Use fabric paint and paintbrush to colour the inside of the t-shirt. Let the colours dry so that they don’t get on the back of your T-shirt.
Drawing a Design Using a Computer and Printer
First take a print out of the design in black and white color on a white paper. Next, staple or attach this design to the back of a contact paper. You now have to carefully cut out the design on the paper with the help of a paper knife by outlining or marking its border. Now insert a cardboard or plastic material between the front and backside of the t-shirt which will serve as a tweener. Now place this design on the T-shirt by peeling off the sticky backside of the contact paper. Now cover the region surrounding the design with rough papers so that the paint doesn’t get to other areas of the T-shirt. Now start applying the fabric paint with the help of a paint brush. Wait until the paint is dry. Now slowly peel off the design from your T-shirt.
