This Neon Lucky T-shirt tutorial was created as a sponsored post for i Love To Create and Blueprint Social.
With the weather being what it is lately, I’m pretty sure everyone is counting down the days to Spring. I know I am! Mother nature may still have a few more cold tricks up her sleeve but you can always brighten your day with some fun neon colors added to your wardrobe. Making this Neon Lucky T-shirt has never been easier than with Tulip Fabric Markers from i Love To Create. Perfect for Spring, St. Patrick’s Day, or any other time you need a little pick-me-up!
These fabric markers are super easy to work with (even my 5 year old can use them!) but there is a trick…stabilize, stabilize, stabilize! It’s super easy to do, just print your template on heavy cardstock and stick it to the inside of your t-shirt with spray adhesive. Basically, you want to make sure that something is holding your fabric in place while you have fun decorating it with the fabric markers!
Now that your template is stuck to the inside of the shirt, all you have to do is trace the lines through the t-shirt and color it in. (Feel free to download and use my “Neon Lucky T-Shirt Template!“) Make sure your t-shirt is a light enough color so that you can see the design through it. I had some difficulties seeing through the grey parts of mine but it was easy to just connect the lines. Solid white or any other light color would definitely work better!
Depending on taste, continue coloring in your design until you reach the desired color saturation. I colored mine in three times, allowing about 10 minutes of drying time in between each coat. I absolutely love the neon green! Don’t forget to follow the instructions and allow to dry for 24 hours before washing.
And here’s me modeling my new Neon Lucky T-Shirt in my messy craft room! I absolutely love the light and transparent feel of the design and the fact that it was so easy to make? Love it. I’m really excited about trying out the Tulip Dimensional Mini 3 Packs and Tulip One-Step Mini Tie-Dye Kits as well. C’mon Spring, I’m officially ready for you!
