DIY School Shirt!

 I know it's been awhile since I've posted anything, but I have some fun projects I wanted to share!  For Molly's first day of PreK, we made this fun shirt "Lined Paper Shirt" we saw at Maybe Matilda.  It was SO easy to make, Molly loved helping paint.  Head over to UCreate, to see the full tutorial!  The only things I did a little different, was I used fabric paint, and Molly used a stencil brush to paint the lines.  :)

One of the best parts, (besides how stinkin' adorable she is :)) I was AMAZED how well it washed up!  Molly got some stains on the shirt and I had to use stain stick to try and get them out.  I was worried that it would take the paint off a bit, since the usual rule is Handmade=Handwash.  But, I washed it normal and the stains came out, and the paint stayed perfectly on!!! WIN!  :)
