It has been a minute since we have done a D.I.Y. blog here at Glik’s, so for today’s post we are going to show you how easy it is to embroider a tshirt! Embroidered denim, shirts, shoes, etc. are such a trend right now, and you can totally make this trend your own personal style! You will be amazed with how easy it is to create a fashionable and unique piece with just about an hour of your time! So let’s get started on your own DIY embroidered tee!
What You’ll Need:
- Plain t-shirt
- Colorful thread
- An embroidery hoop (optional)
- A design
To start off get whatever shirt in whatever color you like best! The thread and needle you can buy at any supermarket or craft store. Try to find embroidery thread, normal sewing thread will be too thin to really show up well on the shirt. I recommend breaking the thread up to two to three strands.
Next, sketch out your design, pattern, icon etc. that you want to put on the shirt with some chalk. This will easily come out of the shirt when your are finished stitching.
After you sketch out your design, get to stitching! An embroidery hoop is optional, but it will make this whole process easier, especially if you are new to sewing. Go over the lines as many times as you want to create the desired thickness for your design. The shirt we made here isn’t totally perfect, so to dazzle it up we added some colorful lines!
TA DA! That’s all it takes to make a plain tee a cute and trendy tee that reflects your personal style! Hopefully, it is clear to see how easy it is to make whatever design you can dream up come to life with just a couple minutes of your time.
