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:
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.
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.
Using one of the thick fabric markers fill in your letters.
I used the opaque fabric markers in gold to fill in my heart.
Once I was done with my letters I went back in and created some sketch lines on and around my letters.
Cut the sleeves off the t-shirt.
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.
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!
