The T-shirt contest has inspired me to make this t-shirt for my grandson who loves this song: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p3bkmD-70e4 . He thought the picture of the raven was awesome. I could not buy a t-shirt like the logo of this group so I made a practice one. I am happy with the results and will be trying different methods until I find the perfect design and application. I did not know how to go about making it and was concerned about all the details of the raven. I have more to add to the shirt I will be sending him for Christmas but was so impressed with this one I thought I would share it here on Instructables.
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: Materials List
1 Fabric slightly larger than pattern
Iron on inner facing
1 Matching thread
1 Small button
Sewing machine with zigzag stitch
Step 2: Pattern
- Pattern I copied here: http://sahaty.deviantart.com/art/Apparat-arcadia-shirt-172030338 .
- Trace the pattern from your screen and cut it out.
- I went to the library and enlarged the image 2X its size.
Step 3: Iron on Inner Facing
- Iron the interfacing to the black fabric on the wrong side.
- I laid another piece of fabric over the top so the iron would not stick.
Step 4: Pinning the Pattern
- Pin the raven pattern to the black fabric and cut it out.
Step 5: Sewing the Raven
- Lay the raven over the t-shirt where you want it.
- Pin it to the shirt.
- Carefully stitch all the way around the shirt using a small zigzag stitch.
- Remove from the sewing machine and trim all loose threads.
Step 6: Button
- Place the button where you think it should go.
- Sew it to the raven.
Step 7: Sunshiine's Final Thoughts
I enjoyed making this and I am looking forward to making another one with a window and a string!
Thank you for stopping by and please have a great Thanksgiving Day!
