Snowman T-shirt tutorial

Tis the Season! Here's a fun way to spice up a plain white tee for the winter season!

I made these snowman tee's for my kids years ago. They are quick, simple and adorable!


Supplies: 
White t-shirt
scrap of orange fabric (for carrot nose)
Fabric Adhesive
Scissors
8 black buttons (mine were mismatched)
thread and hand sewing needle

Step 1: Cut out a carrot pattern to trace. (A carrot is really just a tall, skinny triangle with a rounded bottom).

Step 2: Place your orange fabric right side down and apply the fabric adhesive per the package instructions. Trace your carrot pattern and then cut out.

Step 3: Place the carrot on the tshirt and arrange the buttons for the eyes and mouth. Remove the backing on the carrot and iron into place. 


Step 4: Sew the carrot securely into place with a zig zag, statin or straight stitch. Then using your hand needle sew on the buttons for the eyes and mouth and you are done!

These can easily be made into a girl snowman by adding a hair bow or even eyelashes.


If you try them out - let me know!
I will be linking up here all week!

  24. Finally I can dress my kids in something matchy-matchy! I have a boy and a girl, so it doesn't happen often. I made your shirts for my kiddos for Christmas! Thanks for the idea. You can check mine out here. http://prattlindsay.blogspot.com/2011/12/christmas-day.html

    1. Usually most of the band t-shirts are quite inexpensive because they have a promotional purpose. After all, anyone
      with a band t-shirt promotes their product for free every time wearing it.

      design a t shirt
      print on shirts
      digital t shirt printing
      custom tee shirts
      create t shirts
