How to make your own t-shirts ? this is a very common question.

A fun craft that is rarely explored is the idea of making your own t-shirts. While it’s common practice for those trying to sell their own merchandise, it’s a lot more fun when you make a shirt design yourself and wear it proudly. There’s so many amazing iron-on shirt designs that you can put almost about anything you want on them. And the best part is they’re very easy to make. Here’s ‘a quick how-to on what you’ll need and how you can make your very own t-shirt.

What you’ll need:

-plain t-shirts

iron on flower jewel designs for t-shirts

-regular iron-ons

-an iron (may also need ironing board)

What to do

  1. Pick out the design you want to have on your shirt. Perhaps you’re going to a football game and you’d like to decorate your shirt corresponding to the team you’re rooting for, or you’re giving to a friend and want to have their name on it, either way, choose what you want the most
  2. Once you have your design picked out, lay out all your tools that you’ll need, perhaps on an ironing board so you can multi-task
  3. Have your iron ready to set the patterns on your shirt
  4. Place them however you want everything to look
  5. Use your iron to adhere the designs you picked out onto your shirt

After you’ve applied the iron onto the design that you want most, then you’re all set! You could even choose a design that goes with a movie release that’s coming out, or make your own shirts for a Spirit Week while you’re in school. There are a plethora of ideas out there that you can choose from, all you have to do is decide what you want most.

Make your own sequined one shoulder dress

16
Oct

 

Now that spring is here there will be plenty of outdoor get together and parties. You can take up making a fun party dress from a simple one shoulder dress for your daughter or yourself as a spring project. By making a few alterations, you will make a whole new dress that you will love to wear. The key to making your plain one shoulder dress more glamorous and interesting is by adding sequins to the shoulder and other decorative items to increase its style quotient.

What you need:

  • One shoulder dress
  • Sequins
  • Decorative chains for clothes
  • Thread and needle (that will fit the hole of the sequin)

How to do it:

  1. Take the shoulder of the dress and decide the kind of pattern you want on it. You can even take a piece of chalk and lightly mark the pattern. Make sure you do not overdo it and the pattern is within 4 inches from your shoulder.
  2. Now put the thread into the needle and knot the ends to get a double thread stitch. This will help to hold the sequin in its place.
  3. Now sew the sequins in the pattern you designed while making sure that the knot is at the back of the dress. Once you are done with the sequins, you can attach the decorative chain.
  4. You should stitch the ends of the chain on the shoulder in such a way, that it forms a u-shape on your arm when you put on the dress.

This style also makes great juniors dresses and you can surprise your kid sister or friend with this thoughtful but stylish dress.
