Grandma's Little Angels Shirt

Follow these instructions and you can make this fun shirt for a special grandma. A great wearable gift idea submitted by Tabby.

  • Age Guideline: 0 Years and Up
  • Time Required: 30 minutes (Does not include drying time)

The above age and time guidelines are estimates. This project can be modified to suit other ages and may take more or less time depending on your circumstances.

Materials Needed:

  • Plain T-shirt or Sweatshirt
  • Fabric Paint

Using fabric paint, help your child make an upside-down footprint on the shirt. This will be the angel's body. Carefully add two hand prints on each side for the angel's wings. To finish the angel, make a golden halo at the heal of the foot. You can also use paint to add a head and a face. Repeat this step for each child.

Above the angels, write "Grandma's Little Angels" using fabric paint. You should also write each child's name below their hand and footprint angel and include their age if you like.

You can also make a canvas bag using this idea, or make this shirt for anyone by simply replacing the word 'Grandma' with the appropriate word or name.
