DIY Personalized T-Shirts for Kids

Who doesn’t like personalized stuff? When it comes to kids, they just gleam with pride to see their names even on the always personalized “birthday cakes”. Needless to mention their reaction if they get an outfit that has the word they recognize the most.. their name. It is icing on the cake if it is hand made by you just for them. This was something that made me attempt this project. We had a reunion a while ago and that was the first time our little munchkins were meeting each other. I created these personalized tees for each one of them. My reward was the high voltage smiles and the hugs I got from the little angels.


It is a super simple DIY that you can do in a few simple steps and the project needs minimal materials.

Materials Required:

  • Plain t-Shirt
  • Fabric Paint
  • Thick Cardboard Piece


  1. Place the cardboard piece under the tee in the area that you intent to paint on. This is to avoid the paint blobs on the other side of the fabric.
  2. Draw a rough outline of the design and name you want to paint on the tee
  3. Paint the design in colors of your choice
  4. Leave to dry for 2 hours
  5. Iron on the reverse side.



You can use stencils and pattern cut-outs to save time or if you are not convinced with your drawing skills

Wash the brush n wipe it before dipping the brush in a different color
