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.
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!
