DIY: Makers Gonna Make Tshirt

I know I've said it before but I'll say it again; if you're ever in a creative slump, just grab a plain old tshirt and a fabric pen and get doodling. It works wonders.

I've seen a few different DIY's using this crafty ode to Taylor Swift and thought a tshirt would be perfect for it - it's quick and simple to do, but be warned you'll be singing Shake it Off repeatedly whilst wearing it.

First, draw out your chosen quote onto a piece of paper using a felt tip pen. Stick this to a cutting board and place inside your tshirt.

I used a vanishing marker to outline my letters - this is optional but made things a lot easier.

Working over the vanishing marker I filled in the letters using a fabric pen. It was fiddly trying to keep things neat working on jersey, but working slowly and not dragging the pen across the fabric helped. Once finished, iron to set the ink in place...

...and then proceed to dance around to T.S. This is a DIY that's totally good for the soul!
