mmm that does look lush! going to try making this next week!

That looks delicious. Thanks you for the recipe.  I'd love to try it. Please could you clarify for me what AP flour is?

I think its All purpose flour - or if your in uk like me that'd be plain flour.

Thank you all for the lovely comments!

I've updated the original thread to show a picture of what it looks like on - best comment from my little one, he said i looked fantastic and that we did a great job!

CraftyMamaBee no i didnt come up with it, i just typed in "fingerprint tree" into google and just picked the one i liked the look of traced it onto the t-shirt.

I think i'm going to paint the date on the back of the shirt so that once it no longer fits i can keep as a keepsake.

given me lots of ideas for xmas presents for the hubby too!

Ok so not SUPER standards but this is my first attempt at decorating my own t-shirts.

I'm sick of buying t-shirts that i think are ok just cos they fit so after a trip to my local craft shop i picked up on the idea of making some of my own.

picked up some cheap cotton t-shirts - 2 different types to test out which is best - and got decorating.

the first was ok, i LOVE this picture that i found on the net but the t-shirt i used was very thin, flimsy material and i think it made using the fabric pens much harder than it should've been.

i thought it still looked a little plain so added just a touch of colour.

my second attempt i did this morning with help from my 3 and a half year old son. I wanted to do a tree (i love trees) so again looked on the net till i found something i loved - i'm not an artistic person so tracing is really the only way to go for me.

I started using the fabric pen for the outline (so much easier to use on this thicker t-shirt)

The leaves are my 3.5 year olds finger prints (and boy was that hard to get them all in the right places!) and i painted the branches using my toddlers paintbrush i might add (hard!)

and the finished product (Well its drying right now)

i thought they both turned out pretty well for a starter and cant wait to do more (once i get a decent paintbrush!)

Update: heres a pic of me wearing it

oh and look at this picture, this is my official progress shot taken by my 3.5 year old what a fab job he did!

next one is going to have to be done with a little help from my 2 year old so i have one from both Smiley

let me know what you think.

I agree how handy they are for kids, i love the fact that theres no chance of them falling down during play!

You've made a really nice pair there, which pattern did you use if you dont mind me asking - i made a pair from a pattern i picked up from our second hand shop for 50p but they werent quite the design i wanted.

overalls not so good for potty training kids though  Grin

I wanted you to know that I made these tonight for my kids (3years and 2years) using frankfurters, my kids normally wont eat these (not cos they dont like them but just cos they dont like the look of them i guess) yet tonight i've never seen dinner disappear so fast!

so thanks Smiley my kids loved em Smiley
