With the first quarter of 2011 behind us, we wanted to take a quick look back at some of our previous craft posts-which you might have missed. We had a lot of fun putting each of them together and hope that you’ll have just as much fun trying them out.
Fabric Paint Craft Post
Our first post is from March and this one provides a brief explanation on how to use fabric paint to spruce up your t-shirts. Here’s an excerpt:
“For those of us that are creatively challenged, such as myself, stencils are a great way to transfer beautiful designs onto your t-shirts. You can purchase them at your local craft store or you can print the designs and transfer them to a thicker paper, such as a paper plate, file folder, or water color paper.
When applying stencil design, you need to make sure that paint doesn’t get beneath the stencil’s edges.”
Doggie TuTu Craft Post
As you may have noticed, here at Rock Bottom T-Shirts, we love our puppies and are always looking for new ways to include them in our crafts. A great example is this “cute as a button” tutu for your pampered pooch.
Here’s a brief post summary:
“The great thing about this project is that it’s easy to make. The idea is to take something that can be found in your local dollar store or department store (a princess skirt) and use it to add some flair to your doggie’s outfit.”
T-Shirt Bag Post
Our third post is more recent but this one was just too awesome to resist sharing. It’s a t-shirt bag with many uses-one of which is as an eco-friendly Mother’ Day Gift. The neat thing about this craft is that it isn’t much more difficult than taking one of her favorite old t-shirts and replacing it with a new one.
Perhaps this short excerpt will explain it better:
“Since this project involves using old t-shirts instead of brand new fabric it won’t put undue stress on the environment. Additionally, since this project should only take between 5 to 10 minutes to complete your kid(s) should be finished long before losing interest.”
In summary, whether you use these crafts as gifts, product ideas, or even for yourself we believe that each one is a winner. We hope you not only enjoyed this post but that you also give these crafts a try.
Of course, if you do try your hand at any of these wonderful projects please share your creations with us on our Facebook page so that all may be inspired!
