Saint Patrick’s Day Shamrock Skirt with #tulipneon

Saint Patrick’s Day is right around the corner. I figure I better get some green duds in my new and smaller size or I will run the risk of getting pinched. No Saint Patrick owies allowed!




Since neon green is practically a neutral in my house, I’m going to go bright and make a neon shamrock t-shirt skirt to wear on Saint Patrick’s Day with a little help from my friends at i Love to Create. They sent me a neon care package with Tulip Dimensional Mini 3 Packs, Tulip One-Step Mini Tie-Dye Kits, Tulip Fabric Markers.

Fabric markers make it a mess free project!

Make it:

1. Make the shamrock freezer paper stencil by either using the die cutting machine or by tracing the shamrock clip art onto the freezer paper and cutting out the shape with the scissors. I traced mine.

 
2.  Use a dry iron to iron the freezer paper stencil shiny side down onto the t-shirt skit.

3. Outline the stencil with the Dual-Tip Fabric Marker and let it dry (it should only take a few minutes.)
