Believe Altered T-Shirt DIY

 
One of the fastest and most fun ways to create designs or patterns on a t-shirt is with fabric markers. They’re definitely one of my favorite crafting supplies; they're easy to use, add great color and stay on through the wash! What’s not to love! Alter a t-shirt with this simple tutorial to personalize your t-shirt with fabric markers and while you’re at it we’ll cut it up for a chic new look!



TOOLS & MATERIALS:
T-shirt
Scissors

step 1
I drew my design out on a piece of paper and traced them with marker so that I could see them through the t-shirt.

step 2
Place your design inside your t-shirt where you want your design to be.

Using your fabric markers trace your design on the front of your t-shirt.

step 3
Using one of the thick fabric markers fill in your letters.

step 4
I used the opaque fabric markers in gold to fill in my heart.

step 5
Once I was done with my letters I went back in and created some sketch lines on and around my letters.

step 6
Cut the sleeves off the t-shirt.

step 7
Starting down about 3 inches from the bottom of the back neckline, draw vertical lines down the back about ¾ of an inch apart.

I created a bit of a rounded bottom by making the inside lines a little longer.

Cut these lines.

Pull your t-shirt from the top and bottom to open the strips a bit.

step 8 
I went back in an cut off the neckband and brought the sleeves in a bit too. You can alter your tee to best fit you.

No time to make it now, PIN IT for later!

Isn’t it so exciting and interesting to see that you can do something or crafts on your own. Those DIY tips and tutorials are so helpful for you to become creative and artistic in your own way.

That's some great DIY work. Thanks for showing the step-by-step process. It’s great that not only do you instruct people how to make a shirt like this themselves, it shows them the many ways that cloth can be reconfigured to create different effects. I'm really looking forward to seeing what else others will do to shirts given the knowledge you have just imparted here. Cheers!

Very cool post, your t shirt looks super 90's. I use to love doing this in my teens, I should get back into it really. I have so many old t shirts that could do with re-working. There are some great places where you can get t shirt templates too!

Most men who have bought a custom dress shirt prefer to wear them as they fit properly and the styling is tailored to their specific tastes and preferences. A prefect shirt can have the 'ideal' fabric in terms of pattern, color, texture and weight whilst also having the particular styling for the cuff and collar to match the fabric and occasion.
