DIY T-shirts are a heap of fun to make and also can save you heaps when it comes to times when you need a wardrobe makeover. If you’re tired of wearing the same thing as everybody else, kick your creative side into gear and get designing, with these great tips!
Choose your Colour
Before you begin designing your T-shirt, you first need to choose the colour for your canvas. White is a great option if you plan on uploading any darker designs or photos. If you’ve made a print that it’s light in colour, however, you may be best sticking to a darker shade. For those who want to make a bold statement, shout it to the world with the colours of the rainbow!
Add a Design
Your chosen design will often be the focal point of your T-shirt creation. There are a number of different options available for adding a design to your shirt, suited for the creative and not so creative people out there. If you’ve designed your own print, you can make your own T-shirt, simply by uploading your design to an online printer. A number of premade designs are also available via the databases of online printing companies, while you may even like the option of uploading your favourite photo onto your shirt.
Write Your Text
For all the T-shirt designers out there that want something that makes an impact, why not add some bold text to your next creation. You can create your own saying or even use your favourite quote to really make a statement. Much loved song lyrics are also a good idea for text inspiration. For a professional finisher, research online printers who can do a great job and save you from a lot of stress and anguish.
Add some Fun
If you’re making your own T-shirt, it should be something that shouts your personality! You could buy a boring, plain T-shirt from the shops – the same one that everybody already has. To create the perfect DIY shirt, add some fun to your design! A great way to add colour to your shirt is tied it, before adding your text and design. If you’re looking for something that’s a little more understandable, why not try some fancy trimmings? You can pick up effects of material and ribbons from most fabric stores, for very little cost, which can really make your new shirt your own.
Creating your T-shirt is often easier than most people think and is always a really fun activity. Whether you’re making a shirt for yourself or have decided to design something for a friend, there’s bound to be a great deal of laughs in the process. Choose your favourite photo, get colouring and think about your favourite quote to create your own T-shirt today!
