A while ago, I was supposed to look for a nice shirt from one of my favorite brands but they seem to run out of stock because their sale just ended. Feeling a little bit down, I felt artsy fartsy (LOL) and decided why that I should make my own shirt instead for fun. So I came up with the UK flag as the design because I think it looks cool. here's how I did it:
WHAT YOU'LL NEED:
• Plain white tee
• Blue and Red textile paint
• A big paintbrush
• A cup of water
• Masking Tape
STEP 2: Put the newspaper inside the white shirt so the textile paint doesn't stain the back part of your shirt. Also put newspaper on top of your work place to avoid mess in case you spill one of your paint or whatever accident might occur.
STEP 3: Outline the design on your shirt using a pencil so it would be easier for you which part to paint on. You can look at the design of the flag here.
STEP 4: After drawing your outline, put masking tape outside of the outline so that when you're painting you'll have a clean look. Or if you want to get a little creative and free, forget the masking tape and just paint along the outlines without worrying of painting outside it because you only live once. LOL!
STEP 5: After painting, let it dry overnight for best results. After that, iron the shirt to ensure that the paint would stay on the shirt. After ironing, wash the shirt yourself or have someone wash it for you.
That's it! Your own UK Flag (Union Jack, if you prefer) in 5 easy steps. Of course you can get more creative than me and make your own variation. It's cheap and easy and can level with the branded clothes with the same design if you put effort. That is all. Ciao!
Here's what mine turned out to look like. It's messy, yes but it's intentional.
