Father’s Day Gift Idea: Fish Handprint Shirt


I always make a shirt for my husband for Father's Day with my kids' hand prints (or footprints).  This time I wanted to change it up a little bit and turn the hands into something.  So I made them into little fish :)

This is how we made it:
I painted my kids' hands with the fabric paint.

Then I had them put their hands onto the shirt.  Make sure to have the thumb sticking up to look like a fin.

Then I let them make bubbles.  So they put their index finger in the paint.

They also created a fun little face with their fingers.

Using my Silhouette, I cut out the heat transfer vinyl.  Make sure you flip the words horizontally because cutting it.

I ironed on the words. I also ironed the paint, to help it set in.
