Make it: Reverse Applique T-Shirts

Make it: Reverse Applique T-Shirts
from the "rock star" episode of Creative Juice

Tee shirts
Funky fabric scraps larger than your image
Sewing Machine
Contrasting Thread
Sharp Scissors
Basic image to cut out
Sewing pins
Pinking Sheers

1. Layer the scrap fabric, tee shirt and image together in the area where you want your design. Begin with the fabric (right side up) underneath the front of the tee shirt. Next, place the paper image on top of the tee shirt. Use sewing pins to pin all the layers together.

2. Stitch around the image through all the layers. I like to use a contrasting thread color for added pop.

3. Remove the pins and image. Use sharp scissors to remove the tee shirt layer. Trim as close to the stitching line as possible.

4. Turn the tee shirt inside out and trim away the outer edge of the fabric scraps. Use a pinking sheer on the edges so that they don’t fray.
