Create an image on your computer and print it out. Cut off a piece of freezer paper to fit the size of your image. Put the shiny side down, with a piece of carbon paper on top and then your image on top of that. Draw out your image with a pencil.
Place your freezer paper on the cutting board and with the Xacto, cut out your design. If your design is simple, you can use scissors, but since our map of Palestine had so many jagged edges on either side, we wanted to make sure we got all of them.
Place your piece of foam inside your tshirt. If you don’t have a large piece of foam, you can also use cardboard, or another piece of freezer paper. You just want to put something inside the t-shirt so that the paint doesn’t go through to the back. Place your freezer paper, shiny side down, on your t-shirt and iron it flat. The shiny side of the freezer paper will adhere to the t-shirt.
When you start painting your fabric paint on the t-shirt, you want to make sure you paint from the outside of the paper inwards. This will give you crisp edges and the paint will not bleed under the freezer paper. We ended up putting two coats of paint on our t-shirt to really get the paint into the little crevices.
