DIY screen print part 1

A while ago I picked up an embroidery hoop for $1. I finally found a picture that both the kids liked.

I put the nylon over the hoop ( I slipped the inner hoop into the knee high (which was worn and no longer stayed up) and secured the outer hoop and carefully cut down the nylon)

Then I traced the design with a sharpie.

And coated the areas I didn’t want with fabric glue. (other tutorials I have seen say to use regular glue or mod-podge. I personally feel a glue that can get wet will be a better choice because it isn’t washable and won’t wash away if you clean your screen)

So far it is easy, painting the glue on the smaller areas is the worst part.
