St. Patrick’s Day T-Shirt Tutorial

St. Patrick’s Day T-Shirt Tutorial

I had a lot of fun working on this project and there are so many ways to mix and match designs and colors to fit any holiday.
The Kiddo has to have a green shirt for St. Patrick’s Day at school so I decided this one would work. I got lucky and Hobby Lobby had a sale on their t-shirts and I got the two for $2.50 each. A tank top would work for the undershirt as well. This project is a great way to upcycle your old t- shirt.

Decide where you want to have the design. My design template was too small so I free-handed the design using the printout as a reference guide.
