How to Make a Simple T-Shirt Look Dashing

Looking for a simple way to jazz up a plain t-shirt? Check this out.

Yesterday, my new friend Marta told me she likes to sew. “What kinds of things do you make?” I asked. She pointed at her son, Alexander, who was wearing this shirt.

How cute is this?!?!

Here’s how to make one:

1. Find an image you like online.

2. Use the image as a guide to cut out the shape you are planning to put on a shirt.

3. Attach the fabric to the T-shirt with fusable interface (iron on fabric).

4. Then use a sewing machine to stich around the edges of the shirt. This helps the image stay attached and also provides a nice finished look. But I wonder if you even have to. (Has anyone done this without the stiching? That would make this a no-sew project).

Well, very creative, Marta! Thanks for letting me share this with TheMommyhood.
