Snowflake Tee

Here’s another fun project for you real American girls on thoses indoor winter blues afternoon.

Material
Permanent marker
Paper
Cardboard
White cotton shirt
Tacky glue
Sponge brush (or a new kitchen sponge)
Fabric paint
Instructions:
Use a permanent marker to draw a thick-lined snowflake template on the paper, or download ours here.

Place the template over the cardboard and slip both inside the shirt, centering them behind the upper front of the garment. You should be able to see the template through the shirt.

Using a thin line of tacky glue (about 1/4-inch wide), trace the snowflake design onto the shirt. Let it dry for 10 minutes, then fill in any gaps with additional glue. Let the glue dry completely, until it is transparent (approximately 3 hours).

Dip the sponge brush in the paint and dab around the snowflake, completely covering the surrounding area. Use less paint toward the outer edge of the design. Let the paint dry overnight.

Soak the tee in warm water for about 10 minutes or until the glue softens. Peel off the glue and let the shirt dry, then follow the package instructions to set the fabric paint.

You can make a matching tee for your American Girl doll just scale your design down.
