Boys' T-shirts

I've been wanting to embellish some boys t-shirts for a while and finally got around to it. I was originally wanting to do a method I've seen using bubble wrap, but then I discovered that I had the wrong kind of bubble wrap. So, I tried something else. This (the gray) is a spray bottle method. First I used my Silhouette SD to cut freezer paper and ironed it to the shirt. Then I mixed water and fabric paint in a squirt bottle and sprayed it onto the shirt. After it dried I pulled off the freezer paper. It turned out alright, but I admit it is not my favorite. I still want to try the bubble wrap thing. Anyway, after that I still had the negative of the freezer paper and decided to use it on a shirt for my baby boy. I just ironed it on, painted with blue fabric paint, let it dry, then pulled off the freezer paper. This one is actually on the back of a t-shirt. Both methods are very quick and easy.
