Tickly Octopus t-shirts are unique

Tickly Octopus DIY tshirts

I’ll fess up before we get into the nitty-gritty of Tickly Octopus t-shirts. I reckon I’d have a hard time standing back and letting my kids create their own t-shirt. Could I button my lip when my three-year-old is placing clouds on the hem, a fish next to a lion and some random shapes clustered on one sleeve? It would be tough so probably best to leave the room and let them get on with putting together their one-of-a-kind creation.

Tickly Octopus specialise in t-shirt design kits that include handmade peel and stick appliqués of animals and shapes – simply press the shapes on the t-shirt, throw it in the dryer for fifteen minutes and hey presto, their very own design is complete. There are fifteen kits to choose from including hippos, sheep and frogs.

Kits are available directly from Tickly Octopus for US$30 each. Also available are extra animal appliqués for US$6 each. Tickly Octopus ship internationally.
