I made this “refashioned” tee for my daughter, who was begging for a Pokemon shirt.
- Old tee shirt
- Double-sided fusible webbing (Wonder Under)
- Fabric (I used three patterns)
- Computer print out of image
- Sewing machine (optional)
Begin by finding an image that you’d like to copy. I just freehanded this one, but it’s probably easier to print one off to size on your computer. Cut out the image and set aside.
Next cut out enough fabric for your image. Iron the fabric thoroughly. (Iron the tee shirt too while you’re at it.) Then lay the fabric on your fusible webbing and iron on until completely attached. Flip over the webbing and trace around your print-out with a pencil. (If you are doing words, be sure to trace backwards, as the image will be reversed).
Cut out the image, and iron on to the shirt. Iron on any embellishments (like eyes or mouth). If desired, you can sew around the edges of your image. This project is machine washable and you can even throw it in the dryer!
