Here are some t-shirts I’ve been making for the Beehive Bazaar. They are sooo very fun to make, I could make them all night, oh wait I already did…
This is such a fun and easy iron on tees DIY. You can make tees, patch jeans or other articles of clothing, customize a bag or even towel with this method. I used favorite images from favorite fabrics, but you could use solid fabrics cut into letter shapes and a million other possibilities. Let the creativity fly as you customize, embellish and individualize your goods. Tip: a custom bag or tee shirt is a great party favor, especially for kids parties.
You will need:
- Two sided iron on paper called Heat n Bond, available at any fabric or craft store.
- Tee shirts (or other articles of clothing) of all-size and colors.
- Fabric to cut up and iron onto the clothing articles, I used all cotton fabrics.
- Iron, scissors, sewing machine.
As you can see in the pictures, after ironing on the fabric, I reinforced the edges with a blanket stitch. Reinforcing is best done on a sewing machine, any stitch you like will do. It’s a good idea to sew down the edges because clothing will be washed over and over and the ironed on fabric will inevitably fray with that sort of wear and tear.
