Wearable Art Review and Giveaway

***Please Note–This Giveaway Has ENDED. ***

Please see Winners page for winning entrant information.

My kids love to color.  So, when I was recently contacted by Wearable Art (http://www.coloryourclothes.com/) about doing a review, I readily agreed.

Wearable Art is a fun, unique twist on the classic children’s activity, coloring books! A design is printed on t-shirts and packaged with the necessary materials to allow you to add your own artistic touch. Wearable Art is loved by kids everywhere because they created their own wearable work of art.

Shirts are available in Kids XS (2-4)  Kids Small (6-8)  Kids Medium (10-12) and Kids Large.  For adult sizes or bulk orders, use the contact form.

Wearable Art currently stocks 14 standard designs, as well as offering custom design services.

We received the Train Shirt in an XS (2-4) for Mister for review.  I also purchased the Princess Shirt in an XS (2-4) for Sister.

Both kids were extremely excited to do an “art project.”  Although, I have to admit, Sister really just wanted to play with the pastels.

IMG_1487IMG_1488IMG_1489

I ended up finishing Sister’s for her, because she wanted to play (at 18 months, her attention span isn’t that long).  Mister did a good job coloring his, but also asked for help in the end.  When coloring Sister’s shirt, I did notice that I had to pull the material to stretch it at times, to make it easier to color.  But, I didn’t mind.  If you want a perfectly colored shirt, I would recommend saving this project for older children.  But, if you are simply looking for a fun way for your kids to express their creativity, even the younger ones can have fun with this.  Both shirts looked great when colored.

To set the colors, I simply laid wax paper over the shirt then ironed (as directed on http://www.coloryourclothes.com/).  Because I am not real confident in my ironing abilities, I half expected the outline of the design to come off or for the wax paper to stick.

IMG_1491IMG_1493

But, neither happened.  The colors set and there was no transfer of wax paper onto the shirt and none of the outlines peeled.

The kids loved the outcome, and so did I.  Of course, I could have avoided ironing over the “oops” marks on the shirts, and those would have washed out.  But, I thought they gave the shirts character.

Never mind the character added when these two donned them!

We really enjoyed our Wearable Art project.  I think the shirts are a great idea, and even gave one as a gift when Mister was recently invited to a birthday party.  How fun would these be as a birthday party activity or a class project?

Wearable Art would like to offer one lucky Lady V dZine reader a shirt of their own to color.
