T-Shirts with Loving Messages

Create clothing designs to give as Valentine's Day gifts.

• T-shirts
• Cutouts or stencils to trace, such as hearts and cupids
• Chalk or chalk wheel
• Buttons, sequins, yarn, shells, ribbons
• Fabric paints

1. Place cutouts in a design on the fabric. Create a world of hearts, cupids, and other Valentine's Day designs.

2. Trace designs onto the T-shirt using chalk.

3. Put a separate piece of paper inside the T-shirt so the paint colors won't go through.

4. Trace the designs you drew with fabric paints.

5. Create a message on the T-shirt. Write it out with fabric paints.

6. Consider designing wrapping paper to match the gift using the same cutouts.
