Where’s Waldo Family

We go to a lot of family Halloween parties each year. I like to have matching family costumes for these special events.  My son is in LOVE with the Where’s Waldo books.  Last year I got the idea that we could dress up like the Waldo characters.  I thought it would be easy to find red and white shirts for everyone.  Much to my dismay there is not a high demand for such shirts.  So, I made my own.

It was a very easy process. I read a lot of posts online about painting on shirts using freezer paper. I thought it would be perfect for this project.  I purchased the freezer paper at my local grocery store. I cut it on my paper cutter to get a nice straight line. I then alternated the freezer paper on the shirt to create the stripes.

I ironed the paper to the shirt and then painted the red stripes with fabric paint and a foam brush.

This was a very simple project. The hardest part was waiting for it to dry.  The freezer paper peeled right off and left me with great looking shirts. No one believed that I made them.

Pumpkin shirt

I have been busy creating seasonal shirts for my niece.  I wish I had my cutter when my daughter was little. I took a pumpkin and wrote her name in the middle.

I cut it out of fabric with the iron on stuff on the back.  Ironed it on the shirt and presto!
