Ok, so I am definitely on a Dolly kick lately. I’ve purchased 6 Dolly Parton vinyl’s within the last month alone. I grew up listening to old country; Kenny Rogers, George Jones, Alabama, Oak Ridge Boys, and of course, Dolly Parton. Listening to these old songs especially on vinyl just feels good; it feels right and in a weird sort of way, it feels like home.
I’ve made many hand painted shirts over the past couple of years, so I thought I’d use this same technique to make a Dolly shirt. Here are the instructions. Enjoy!
1 cotton t-shirt
matte fabric paint
sponge paint brush
Reynolds freezer paper (plastic coated)
- Find a design online or create one of your own
- Either trace on design or hand draw design on matte side of freezer paper
- Cut your design from the freezer paper using an x-acto knife (put down padding underneath so that you do not cut the table)
- Iron on the cut design onto the t-shirt
- Let cool completely
- Using the sponge brush, paint in the cut areas of your design
- Let dry overnight and peel off
