My kids love to create as much as I do! So that's what we did. A quick trip to Wal-Mart for a couple of
$ 3.00 white T's. (I already had the fabric paint and fabric markers.)
To make one of these you will need:
White T shirt
Fabric Paint, I chose black and gold glitter
Fabric Markers, I used Sharpie brand
Big Black Fabric Marker, (to make most of the stripes)
Parchment paper to line in between the shirts
A picture of a tiger, I pulled up a picture of a tiger on the internet so the kids could see how to color it
A black and white picture off the internet of a tiger that you can trace or just draw your own!
How to do it:
First you need the drawing of the tiger, in black marker and on white paper. This is inserted inside the shirt so you can trace it onto the front of the shirt. I hung mine up in a big window, taped it into place to make the tracing easier. Then once traced I removed the picture. Inserted a piece of parchment paper (to block transfer of paint to back), then we began to color and paint the tiger. Using fabric paint with sponge brushes fabric markers, and then using a set of alphabet templates to spell out the words "ROAR" and "EYE OF THE TIGER" using black fabric paint and sponge brush. When the kids were done with all the coloring, then they sponged gold glitter fabric paint over the whole thing to make it extra sparkly!
Here are some pics from our project:

|Here's the picture I drew working from one I found online, and the orange one is the one I traced onto the shirt. Then it was the kids turn to color and paint!|

Hope our creating helps inspire you to create some fun stuff of your own. See ya all later. Love from our little "Patch-A-Heaven!"
