DIY EMBROIDERED T-SHIRT
I was actually on the Swiss radio a little while ago talking about everything homemade (French speakers can listen here if you’re interested) and it was all about the reasons why I go out of my way to make something homemade when I could buy a similar (and probably nicer…or nicer to most at least) version online.
Embroidered or patch t-shirts are everywhere in the shops and you can pick them up for 10 – 15CHF in most places but there is something so nice and almost therapeutic about making one yourself for yourself or for a friend that is totally unique. So yes, I’d actually willingly – and happily – spend more money and take more time to make one myself then to buy one from a shop!
Here’s a full how-to explanation of how to make a watermelon patch t-shirt like this…
Petit warning… you might want to have a second film lined up because this could take you anywhere from 2-4 hours depending on the size of the patch you’ve chosen.
Here’s what you’ll need:
- White t-shirt
- Embroidery hoop
- Print out of your chosen image to embroider. If you search “watermelon embroidery patch” you’ll find this one.
- Embroidery interfacing similar here
- Embroidery thread in various different colours
Make sure to watch the Youtube video for the full how-to!
What do you think? Have you got the patience? Do you think I’m a total nutter for spending 3 hours making a t-shirt? I’d love to hear from you!
Thanks for watching and see you back here soon for another video! xS
