St. Patrick’s Day T-Shirt Tutorial
I had a lot of fun working on this project and there are so many ways to mix and match designs and colors to fit any holiday.
The Kiddo has to have a green shirt for St. Patrick’s Day at school so I decided this one would work. I got lucky and Hobby Lobby had a sale on their t-shirts and I got the two for $2.50 each. A tank top would work for the undershirt as well. This project is a great way to upcycle your old t- shirt.
2 cotton t-shirts of different colors
Template – I printed a shamrock design
Sewing machine and basic supplies
Be sure to wash and dry the t-shirts before sewing. Tuck one shirt into the other and smooth out the creases.
Decide where you want to have the design. My design template was too small so I free-handed the design using the printout as a reference guide.
Pin around the design through both top layers of the t-shirts.
Slowly stitch the outline on your machine keeping the layers pinned and flat.
Draw lines through the design, mine is an inch apart.
Stitch following the guide lines and be sure to back-stitch the beginning and end of each line.
Cut in-between each line. Only cut the top layer of the t-shirt.
If you want the fabric to roll more cur along the outer edges.
To finish the shirt you can trim the edges of the sleeves and the hem of the top t-shirt fold over and stitch in place.
The T-shirt is ready
I embroidered the word lucky to the t-shirt to add a little fun.
Depending on the type of marking pen you used wash the t-shirt and you are ready to go.
