Make It : 4th July t-shirts

Posted by

Do you have figured out what you'll wear for 4th of July (or the whole summer, for that matter)?! Take a look at these simple striped t-shirts from our July/August issue of Martha Stewart Living.


All you need is a plain t-shirt, fabric paint, painters tape and a brush.

Create the stripes by sticking down painters tape to protect the areas you want to stay white. Make sure you burnish the edges down well. Then paint the untaped area with fabric paint (we used the multi surface satin Martha Stewart Crafts paint), let dry over night, peel off tape and set with an iron. Ready to wear. How about one for the rest of the family too!?
