20 minute crafter. july 4th t-shirt.

Need a cute tee for your cutie for the Fourth of July? 
Got ten minutes?
Ready?
You need:
A blank t-shirt this one is from Old Navy
A scrap of fabric in patriotic colors
A scrap of wonder under the same size
An outline of the USA (I googled "outline of usa" found one and printed it on cardstock).
Iron the wonder under to the wrong side of your fabric...trace your USA onto the wonder under...backwards...remember that part. :)
Cut it out...
Remove paper backing...center it on your shirt...iron in place.
Sew around the edges.  Done.
I used red thread...cute...Americana...but not cheesy.

You can do this.  Go make cute for your cuties. :)
Pin It!

LOVE IT!!!! One of those baseball t's - with the white middle and colored sleeves would be cute as well with this on it. What do you think???

Darling shirt!

Way cute! Plus it goes with all the state shirts you made. :)

I love this, and just like you said Americana without being cheesy. For girls perhaps one could add some shiny sequins, or seed beads, or use flowered red white and blue fabric....oh, wait, did I just cross over into cheesy???? shoot, I always do that!

:) thanks for sharing, it is officially on my to-do list!

New to your blog, but I have a question. I'm also new to sewing and was wondering how you sew the outline...just by moving the t-shirt or would I need a special machine (As you can see I've only done straight lines).

Really cute! And what sets it off for me is the red thread. Great idea:)

Janna said...

So cute! Do you use a special needle - like ballpoint - to sew on a t shirt? When I tried sewing applique on a onesie a few years back it just all bunched up. Have any tips? (Was it because I used steam a seam 2 instead of wonder under:! That seems to work really good on the towels i do)

I love it ! I always feel bad for not wearing something patriotic on the 4th, but i can never find anything that is cute and not cheesy.

Love this. I especially like how you printed the US clip art. I google all the time to get pictures for reference.

I'm hosting a party the next 3 Thursdays - Fab Finds for the Fourth. Would love it if you'd link your project!

Very cute. I love how simple it is.

Julianna said...

Did our shirts with my friends on our crafting night. (pics at http://julianna.homelinux.org) but I did straight-out copy you (and of course, linked and gave credit).
You seriously have the best blog ever and fantastic taste in music!
Where do you get your crafting ideas??!

Ellen said...

I love this! I did one with Brazil on the front and Sweden on the back for my friend's son and a Washington State T for my niece. So simple and personal!
