Watermark Tee Tutorial by Sweet Verbana

 
 
 
 
 
Hello U-Create readers! I am so excited to be guest posting here today. It just so happens to be my first guest post and I'm still a little shocked that it's here at Ucreate, one of my favorite blogs!
 
A little bit about me..
 
I'm from a little town called Keller, Texas.
I'm a junior at Texas A&M University (whoop!).
I'm working on my education degree and expect to be an elementary school teacher in just two short years.
When I'm not busy studying for classes, I love to sew. In fact, I'm all about DIY fashion.
I just started blogging in May and have already met all kinds of wonderful women, I hope you'll stop by and say hi too!
 
 
Watermark Tee Tutorial
 
 
 
 
What I love about this project is that it's completely customizable. I used favorite quotes to decorate my shirt but you could also use song lyrics, bible verses, favorite book excerpts, etc. You can also choose whatever color you like. I think it would be a very kid-friendly project as well. There are so many possibilities!

 
Materials:
 
Elmer's Blue Gel Glue (it must be the blue gel, white won't work)
 
 
Fabric Dye (RIT is my tried and true brand)
 
A white cotton Tee, Tank, Dress etc.
 
Tutorial:
 
If you're unfamiliar with Batiking, it's a method of dyeing fabric in which you create a design with a dye- resist. When you dye your garment in cold water, all will be colored except where you've placed your dye resist. In traditional batiking, you would use wax as a resist. I tried this out and found it to be messy and difficult to control. Using store bought glue is much more convenient and very easy to control.
 
Step 1: Prepare
Wet your tee with cool water and place a water resistant board between the layers of fabric. I used the lid of a bin.
 
 
Step 2: Design
I'm not much of an artist, so what worked best for me was writing favorite quotes right across the front of the shirt.
 
 
This quote was found via Pinterest
Source
You could also try drawing a simple design like my very amateur sailboat:
 
 
Let dry completely. This will take several hours.
 
 
Step 3: Dye 
Your dye bath should be prepared using cool water. Experiment with different amounts of dye until you find the right concentration. Keep in mind that the color that comes out of the dye bath will be a couple of shades darker than the dry, finished garment.
 
 
When you get the color you want, lay your tee flat to dry.
 
 
Step 4: Wash
When your tee is dry (to let the dye set) soak it in cool, soapy water for about 15 minutes. This soak washes the extra glue out. Throw it in the washer and dry as you would normally.
 
 
 
Step 5: Wear and Enjoy!
 
 
 
 
 
I'd love it if you'd stop by over at Sweet Verbena and check out my other DIY fashion tutorials.
 
Thank you so much for having me Kari!

  48. Like you, I also tried batiking in high school and also found it too messy - so - I love this idea and can't wait to try it.
    I wonder if it would be possible to take an old colored t-shirt and make up a mild bleach solution and do this in reverse??? Any thoughts on that idea???

      We did this in Girl Scouts decades ago....use a dark colored shirt and use liquid dishwasher soap (the kind that contains bleach). It will not bleach the shirt white (if you have a navy shirt, where you use the soap, it will turn it several shades lighter but not white). Still it is very unique looking. For intricate patterns, use a small artist paint brush dipped in the soap.

  49. I bought my glue at Michaels today for about 2 bucks. I have 4 shirts now waiting to dry overnight and I will begin to dye them in the morning. I have 2 with inspirational quotes from Maya Angelou and 1 that has hearts all over ( I may try to ombre dye that one ). Thank your for the idea and options for taking a boring tee and turning it into a masterpiece.

  53. I was just wondering... Will this work if you don't wet the shirt first??
    I completely forgot, until I re-checked the tutorial :/

  55. I forgot to wet the shirt before, but it still worked beautifully!

  56. Love this and have to try. I'm from Keller, great place. lived there. 12 years and now retired in Ma. Good luck at A&M

    ReplyDelete
  57. I turned two responsible teen-aged artist girls loose on this project. Came home both days in a row and found the house intact. Yesterday they did the art work, today they did the dying. Now the shirts are drying waiting to be washed. Cool and easy. I am only sad that I didn't get to do one for my toddler and myself. Hopefully I will find the time and space for that.

    ReplyDelete
  58. I tried this with a bunch of teenage girls, they were all so excited but the glue washed off and the whole shirt was dyed. How long do you leave it in the dye? Maybe we left them in too long. :(

    ReplyDelete
  59. I just did this with my daughter. We used the white washable RoseArt glue and it worked fine. We noticed the glue was starting to get soft, so we took it out of the dye sooner than we would have liked. But still, amazing results!

    What an awesome idea!
    Ps. way to be a loud proud fightin Texas Aggie! A! A! A! A! A!

    ReplyDelete
  61. I made this today/yesterday, and it looks pretty cool! I had some problems in the beginning, so here are my notes: leave the shirt dry. It spread all over the place and was illegible when I did it wet. Also, be sure to use Elmer's brand glue. I used the clear gel kind, and it turned out fine. Before that, I tried a blue version that was a store brand. It wasn't as thick so it was also illegible.

    ReplyDelete
  62. i love this shirt!! would it work with a ribbed top?

    ReplyDelete
  63. um, cutest thing ever. can't wait to try it.

    ReplyDelete
  64. sad face...when I tried it while my shirt was damp, like Kristen said, it spread all over the place so I just threw that one in the wash. My 2nd attempt, well...I'm not convinced yet. Still having some running issues. I'm using the clear Elmer's glue. Might try the white next time as I couldn't find the blue. I'll be dyeing it in the morning. keep your fingers crossed for me!

    ReplyDelete
  65. okay. happy face instead now! used white elmer's glue. didn't wet shirt. perfection. just dyed it & now it's drying. Will wash glue off & wash/dry in the AM. CAN'T wait to wear it! I was able to write part of the Holstee Manifesto on it. :D

    ReplyDelete
  66. Love, Love, LOVE! This is positively genius! Will definitely be doing this from now on and creating my own t-shirts.

  67. that is the cutest t-shirt design ever!!

  165. I've been looking all over for the Elmer's blue gel glue (Walmart, Office Depot, CVS, Walgreens, HEB, Kroger, and Texas Art Supply). Anyone know where I can buy it, not online? Or know of anything you can use instead? Thanks :)

    1. I couldn't find it anywhere either, I had to order from Amazon...

    2. Others have said the white washable glue worked just fine. I'm going to try it as I cannot find the blue glue either.

    3. I was able to easily find it at JoAnn Fabrics.

  170. I tried this once, but I used yellow and didn''t let it dry after the dye bath. It didn't work that time, but I decided to try again. I used one of the yellow shirts, but I did it in pink dye. It ended up coming out as a really cool shade of coral.
