Mother's Day with Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft and Creativity for Kids

Hi everyone, Mou here cooking up some Mother's Day love with my kiddos with Faber Castell's Design Memory Craft and Creativity for Kids goodies :)
I have never done tie dye before, so everything in a kit helped me. My kids have done this before, so they guided me through the whole process and we had fun :) Let me share the experience with you in pictures!

We added water to the powder dye in the squirt bottles and mixed them up.

With rubber bands we created sections in the t-shirt.

And then we added the liquid dye to the tied off sections.
Once the t-shirts were dyed and dry, we decided to embellish them.

Using the stencil from the kit and some Stamper's Big Brush pens, my daughter drew a butterfly on a piece of canvas.

Then she used the needle and embroidery floss from the kit to add some stitched details to the butterfly.

Then she cut it out to use the butterfly as applique on the tie dyed shirt.

And here's the finished product. We have to secure the butterfly on the shirt, but you get the idea!

To make this T-shirt, we used
Faber-Castell Creativity for Kids The Complete Tie Dye Kit (#1226)
Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Stamper's Big Brush Pens (PINK MADDER, CHROME YELLOW, and ORANGE GLAZE)

To make your Mother's Day sweet, Faber-Castell is giving away these same supplies to ONE of you. Check out the Giveaway details over at the Design Memory Craft blog!
