Get your Craft On with Bron... Saved my Fave!!!

Saved my Fave!!!

Hi Everyone!!!  Hope you're all buzy crafting...

I thought I'd share another odd project I've done recently...

Have you got a favorite T-shirt that you can't bear to part with?  Well I had one and my problem was that the T-shirt wasn't that old but the graphic on the front had started to fade and I couldn't bear to part with it, so...

I grabbed my trusty Posca markers again and thought I'd try to recolour it, the reality was I couldn't make it any worse...

So to get me started I grabbed my Ol Fave T-shirt, an embroidery hoop and of course my Poscsa (I haven't added to the collection yet!)

All I really needed for this job was my original set:

Posca PC-3M8C Fine Bullet Marker

The embroidery hoop I picked up at a quilting shop for about $8.00, I wanted to use this to add some tension to the T-shirt fabric while colouring, what I found was while it gave it tension it didn't give a lot of support while colouring, so I grabbed an old cardboard box and cut out 2 circles the size of the hoop to put the fabric over and then the hoop around.   This gave me someting to lean on while colouring.

Now as you can see the graphic was quite faded but still visable enough to colour in and that's all I had to do, keep within the lines.

Once again I was quite happy with the results, it's given new life to my Fave T-Shirt...

Just a note when working with Poscas on fabric it is advised to iron the item to set the paint to the fabric.  I used my iron on the hottest setting (no steam) with a piece of baking paper between the iron and the shirt.  To be honest I haven't worn or washed my shirt since recolouring but I have no doubt it will keep me going for quite a while. 

Did I mention "Cows" are another one of my favorite things and I just love this quote "Live Live like someone left the gate open"...
