Father’s Day Footprint Shirt {Cartridge giveaway}

Every year I like to make my husband a shirt for Father’s Day.  I usually do handprints, but my little baby is only 6 weeks old and he is still in the tight fist stage.  It would be super hard to get him to open his hand.  So I decided to do footprints instead.  I went with this saying because my kids actually do walk on my husband’s back all the time.  :)

This is how I made it:
With a brush, I put the paint onto their feet.  I used fabric paint because acrylic paint fades in the wash.  And  yes she isn’t wearing pants, I didn’t want her to get paint on them.

Then I put their feet onto the shirt. Make sure to have something inside the shirt or the paint with go through. I put some cardboard in the middle of it.

Fun huh?

I got all of their feet on the shirt and used a different color for each.

With the fabric paint, you have to heat set it with an iron.  I also cut out their names out of heat transfer vinyl with my Cricut.  Aren’t his little feet so cute?

For the front, I cut out the heat transfer.  I used cartridges chalkboard fonts (for the Best Dad) and Base Camp for the other words.

And that’s it!  I love how it turned out!

I had a friend that did the feet in the wrong positions. They look like butterflies. She then framed them and gave them to her mother for Mother's Day. The grand kids loved getting to paint their feet in the colors they wanted.
