DIY Fashion: 5 Minute Ice Cream T-shirt (Upcycle Old Tees)

Hello everyone! I hope you are having a great week! As always, I am going to whine about the lousy weather here and how I miss going out on road trips with my family. But you know what? A girl has got to do what a girl has got to do, and this girl needs ice-cream.
Since the weather now defeats the purpose of eating any ice-cream, I decided to cheer myself up with a make believe one. The cooler part? I get to choose my own toppings and sprinkles, no charge! Yep, you guessed it. We are making a DIY ice-cream tee this week. This is really simple too. Took me five minutes, tops.
I also saw another version of this on Chic Steals with a whole different method. However, as you all know, I am always finding methods that would suit my time allowance best, and using fabric glue was the best option for me. Alright so lets get down with the details and I will see you this weekend with a new DIY tutorial. Love you to bits fluffeteers!

Materials you will need:
Felt - Chocolate syrup, cherry and cone
Scrap Fabric - Ice-cream scoops
Fabric Glue - I use UHU. The best glue there is with amazing staying power after it has dried out completely.
Pearls - Sprinkles

Tips to a long lasting applique pattern on your tees:
- If fabric glue is used, it is always great to stay away from the clothes dryer or anything with heat above sixty Celsius.
- Cold water for washing works best.
- Try not to scrub on felt. Felt can last ages and through many washes if handled with care.
- Lastly, HAVE FUN! Be creative and come up with your own little designs. Trust me, it is addictive.

Time to say goodbye folks. Don't forget to show me your designs if you make them. Big ice-cream hugs to all you wonderful people!
