Spring is coming quickly and is just around the corner. Soon we’re going to have to put away our heavy thick layers and opt for our spring friendly wardrobe. So, this week we’ll be creating two spring friendly tees.

The first one is simply adding a few embroidered words onto a tee.

Time Estimation: 20 Minutes

SUPPLIES NEEDED:
Plain white Tee
A needle
Black thread
Pen & paper

First, you’ll need to figure out what you want to say on your tee. Practice the font you would want to use on a piece of paper.

As soon as you figured out what you’re doing, use something to write onto your tee with(I’m using a non bleeding pen)

After you’re done with your outline, start sewing onto your tee!

The second one is adding a lace trim to the sleeves and to the bottom of the tee.

First, you’re going to have to fold the sleeves over 4 times or as many as you like. You can pin it down if needed ( I didn’t.)

Align the lace trim with the shirt and start hand sewing.

After that’s done, you can fold the bottom of the tee over four times or as many as you like. (I pinned the fabric down this time.) Then, line up the lace with the fold and start sewing. After that, start knotting the ends of your thread and you’re done!

Just put on a pair of jeans and throw one of these beauties on and you’re good to go. Both can be done within the hour, so start sewing!
