We all have that childhood best friend who we can tell absolutely everything to. You can find bestie gear pretty much everywhere you go but why buy BFF t-shirt when you can have more fun making then with your best friend. All you need is a t-shirt and Tulip Permanent Fabric Markers.
Tulip Permanent Fabric Markers 5 Pack Variety Pack
Start by printing out the best friend’s pattern and enlarging it to which ever size you’d like.
Cut some freezer paper to fit inside the shirts. Make sure to place the shiny side of the freezer paper up towards the side you will be drawing on. Place the iron on cotton setting over the top of the shirt and adhere the freezer paper and shirt together. This will temporarily keep your fabric nice and stiff to draw on.
I like using Tulip’s Permanent Fabric Markers Variety Pack because I have marker tip options. I started with a medium tip to draw the surrounding heart.
I then moved on to the best Friend part and used the large chisel tip to fill in each letter. And you can do small touch ups around the letters with the fine point markers.
Two of the girls in the office, Bree and Rochelle modeled the finished shirts for me. They are actually IRL best friends. I couldn't have planned for better models!
