I really wanted to have some t-shirts for my daycare children to wear but the prices for having them done professionally was too much for my budget. So I decided to make my own! I had all my children bring in their own white shirt. Some brought it t-shirts, some tank tops. It didn't matter because they were all going to match when I got done with them. We were planning on wearing our shirts for the parade so I wanted them to stand out a lot. We have always used a smiley face to brand my Daycare named Silly School and so that's what I chose for our shirts as well. I purchased some yellow Rit brand fabric dye and used it to the recommended directions. It was very simple to use Add to water and stir the shirts around and let them sit for a while. After I had some dry yellow shirts I made a simple smiley face template and used black fabrics paint that I found at Michael's to paint the simple design I made sure to add cardboard inside the shirt so the paint wouldn't leak through. I let them dry overnight and that was it. I saved all kinds of money and they turned out great!
Here's one our our little ones wearing our cute matching shirts at the parade.
