My Hand Painted T-Shirts: Pattern #11

I painted a sweatshirt which I am going to wear when it gets colder. I decorated it with a piece of Kashubian folk pattern (Kashubia is a region in Poland).

I use brand new, cotton T-shirts. The painting process requires pre-washing the fabric. That is why, I wash and iron each and every T-shirt before I start painting my patterns on them. The painting itself is rather time consuming. Due to the paints properties, I usually need to put the layers of paint gradually, so it takes me at least a couple of days (not to mention the time of pre-washing, drying and ironing) to decorate a T-shirt. I love it and very much enjoy painting my shirts.
