Here’s a nice and decorative way to preserve your kids’ outgrown t-shirts from sporting and other memorable events: frame them instead of throwing them away. What you will need is:
- marking pen (ideally dressmaker’s chalk, but a ballpoint pen or a pencil works fine too)
- a frame
- glue (optional)
First, iron the center of the t-shirt (area to be framed), and lay it flat.
Remove the backing of your frame and trace around it, leaving approximately 1 cm on all sides. Cut along these lines.
Carefully place the t-shirt into the frame and stretch it taut around the back, so that the cut edges are outside of the backing.(If you’d like, you can place a small dot of glue on each corner of the backing before placing it against the t-shirt. However, this isn’t even necessary if you are planning on hanging it on a wall.) Secure the backing within the frame.
Voila. Happy Mother’s Day to all the proud mommies (and daddies).
