Today I have been using DecoArt So Soft Fabric Paint to paint roses on a T shirt

I will eventually get around to posting a practice sheet for my roses but, meantime, here are a few tips for painting on fabric
  1. Pre-wash the garment prior and let it dry
  2. Do not use fabric conditioner
  3. Place a piece of plastic or card inside the garment to prevent the paint seeping through to the other side
  4. Leave to dry for 48 hours
  5. Wash on a gentle cycle
  6. Hang dry
  7. Clean brushes with soap and water
Decoart also make Fabric Painting Medium, and this converts acrylics to fabric paint. Simply Mix 2 parts paint to 1 part water

Happy Painting
