Watermark Tee: Guest Post at Ucreate!

I'm guest posting over at Ucreate today! I was so incredibly excited when Kari asked me to guest. I mean come on, it's Ucreate. Doesn't get much cooler than that.   

I've been working on this project for quite a while now, trying to get it just right. It's exciting to finally reveal it to you! 




You can find my tutorial over at Ucreate. Pop on over and say hi if you like (:


By the way I'm so impressed with the response to the Anthro Giveaway so far. Completely exceeded my expectations. You guys rock! You make me feel wayy cooler than I really am.

Hi! I just saw your post over at "U Create"...so clever! You are right that it has so many possibilities. I love your blog (the look and the content). I would like to "follow" via blogger but I don't see anything where it says "followers". Are you preferring that folks follow one of the other ways?

OMG...this is great!

I'm from Europe (Slovenia) and I hope I'll find similar glue that the blue one :)

I recently found your blog and I love it!

Just read the tutorial, I have to try this! I'm not much of a creative person, I don't think, but I enjoy reading creative blogs like yours. You've inspired me to try and get my sewing machine and just start sewing (I don't really know how). Thanks!

I'm so excited! This is awesome! My daughter is a gymnast. I'm going to let her find a inspiring quote and make her a shirt. Maybe even some soffee shorts with her gyms logo. I bet I end up doing it for alot of the other girls to. I love this tutorial and your blog. Thanks so much

This is beautiful! I have resisted (couldn't help it!) using the wax...but will certainly try the blue-glue method. Thanks so much for sharing your creativity! ~~Robyne~~

I can't wait to try this! I have a couple questions... Do you think this would be safe for a baby onesie or bib? Also will the color fade after washing?? Thanks!

Robyn Holmes said...

I tried this with a group of girls and the glue dried great but it disolved quickly in the dye bath and the whole shirt was dyed. Any suggestions? How long do you leave it in the dye bath? Maybe we left them too long? I want this to work sooo bad. HELP

Katy said...

Robyn-

Hmm did you use cold water? Or maybe the shirt was left in there too long. Try making a more concentrated dye bath and be sure to use cold water. My shirts stayed in the bath about 3-4 minutes max. So sorry it didn't work for you! I hope it goes better next time.

Thank you so much for posting this!I did this as a craft with the teens and school age girls at the local children's shelter, and they loved the activity. Practically all of them decorated their shirt with the names of their parents or other family members that they are missing while away from their home. It turned out to be a very meaningful and long-lasting craft. Thanks again!

Heather McCoy said...

I cannot stop looking through all of your crafts! I want to try everything you've made. I am starting a clothing line and you are such an inspiration. Thanks so much and good job with all of this!
