Make an eco t-shirt what you'll need

What you’ll need:

Plain white T-shirt

A4 card

Fabric paint

Paintbrush

Newspaper

Scissors

Pencil

Step 1

Make an eco t-shirt step 1

First, carefully draw your designs onto the pieces of A4 card. Use pencil so you can rub out any mistakes and make the letters chunky.

Step 2

If you’re happy with your design, carefully cut each letter out, starting from the centre of each one. The cut-out holes left behind are your stencil!

Step 3

Before you start painting, lay your T-shirt flat and place newspaper inside it. This will stop the paint going through the fabric onto the shirt’s back.

Step 4

Position your stencil on theT-shirt. Then, while holding it firmly in place, dab the paint over the template. When it’s completely covered, hold the T-shirt down and gently peel the stencil off.

Step 5

Wait for the layer to dry, then repeat steps 2-4 with the next stencil, being careful not to smudge them! Leave to dry overnight on a flat surface and you’ve got a fab new top!
