I made Mickey Mouse pyjama pants as a Christmas gift, and needed a matching shirt. You could do this with any pattern – a heart, a child’s age for their birthday, initials, flower, etc.
- A cheap t-shirt. I found mine in a $2.00 bin since it was a Hanes Irregular.
- A printer & paper or great drawing skills.
- Fabric scraps & interfacing (interfacing is not absolutely necessary if you do not have it)
Find your favourite pattern with a Google search, print it, and cut it out. Be sure to place it on your t-shirt at this stage and get a feel for it’s size.
Cut out interfacing & fabric using your printed pattern. (using full-sized interfacing is better, but I only had small scraps left)
Glue interfacing to the WRONG side of your fabric. You can use pins, but I find this works great as a temporary adhesive solution.
Pin & sew your fabric onto your shirt. Be sure that you are not sewing both layers of the t-shirt together; I used a piece of cardboard between the layers to be certain!
Admire your custom made t-shirt!
