From home decor to fashion, word art is everywhere right now. This project puts a new twist on a plain t-shirt to create your own graphic tee.
You will need:
- Knitted or crocheted icord – 2 feet or more depending on the size of your design
- Kwik Sew glue
- Newspaper or cardboard
- Needle and thread
Knitted Graphic Tee Instructions
Step 1: Wash and dry t-shirt to prevent shrinking.
Step 2: Put a piece of cardboard or newspaper inside the t-shirt underneath the area you want your design to be. Place icord on your t-shirt in the shape you want and pin in place. Trim any excess cord.
Step 3: Take a small amount of Kwik Sew glue on a toothpick and tack pieces of the icord design in place and let dry. This step will make it much easier to hold your design while sewing.
Step 4: With a needle and thread, sew your icord onto the t-shirt paying close attention to the spots that may snag with wearing or washing.
Step 5: Rock your new graphic tee!
Pro tip: Once your design is complete, wash t-shirt inside out!
