easy applique t-shirt – tutorial

I was reading through one of my favorite blogs the other day, Jones Design Company, and came across some ubber cute shirts she had made for her little ones.
I HAD to make one.
It was super easy, and turned out way cute.
Here’s what you’ll need:
  • t-shirt
  • fabric
  • iron on interfacing (preferably double sided so you can stick it to the t-shirt too)
  • pencil
  • iron
  • scissors
  • sewing machine and thread
STEP ONE:  Apply interfacing to the back of your fabric per the interfacing instructions.
STEP TWO: Once adhered, use a pencil to freehand or trace your desired design onto the interfaced side of the fabric and then cut out your design.
STEP THREE:  Place applique on the t-shirt.  If using double sided interfacing, apply to t-shirt per interfacing’s instructions.  If using single sided interfacing, pin applique to t-shirt.
STEP FOUR:  Use sewing machine to stitch around the perimeter of your applique.  I used a straight stitch because I wanted a little fraying to show up around the edges, but you could use whatever stitch you prefer.  *tip – when going into a sharp turn, end with your needle down through the fabric, lift the pressure foot up, rotate the fabric, place the pressure foot back down and continue sewing.
Ta Da!  You’re done!
