It really is as easy as 1, 2, 3.
Step 1… Draw on the fabric to create a design or picture… stencils work well for monograms.
Step 2… Cut out design (making sure to cut on the INSIDE of your drawing lines).
Step 3… Iron them on your shirt.
For this project, I created a tank top for my sister, Emily (aka the Fashionista from Le Quaintrelle). She is into being “green” (i.e. tries to use earth friendly products and eat organic food, etc). I decided to make her an “eco-friendly shirt” by using my fabric remnants (kind of like a form of recycling, right? 😉 ). Here is how the shirt was created:
I cut the webbing to fit the shapes.
I purchased this at JoAnn Fabrics.
Here is the finished product:
Remember how I mentioned that I have a bad, bad habit of giving gifts that are themed, right?
Yeah. So I made this bag for her, too. You can find these panels in different colors at JoAnn Fabrics as well. I thought this would be a great way to be eco-friendly. She can take this bag thrifting, shopping or when she goes to flea markets and use it for purchases instead of plastic bags.
Nope. Didn’t stop there either. I made a matching felt clip, too. ha! All you need is a sheet (or two) of felt, some embroidery floss and a snap clip!
I did a similar DIY iron on project (and posted it a while ago) by cutting out fabric that had big design pieces…
Check out this project here.
Hope y’all have fun with creating unique designs for your plain tees and tanks!
It is officially the weekend now!! Go play.
