You are going to need some canvases,a staple gun and scissors. I bought 2 packs of canvases from a local craft store (on sale, about $2-3 a piece). I also spotted some square canvas art at my local dollar store that I could have used.
|Slide the canvas into the tee, center and drape the t-shirt.|
|Flip the shirt and staple the top. |
Don't be afraid to flip it over and check to make sure the design is centered.
|Staple the center bottom, and center sides, pulling tightly each time you staple.|
Then top left, bottom right, and the sides. Then finish stapling so there are three staples on each side.
Staples can be removed with pliers if you make a mistake!
|You t-shirt design should be tight, not sagging. Pull too tight and your design will become off centered.|
|Once you are happy with your design, trim away the extra shirt.|
*NOTE- my husband had these shirts in a donate bin, I did not do this with his favorite shirts. I can not be held responsible for negative reactions from spouses.
|The last step is to fold over the corners and staple. Fold and tuck the corner as shown. |
The folded part shown should be facing the top or bottom of your canvas so it is not visible once hung.
|Easy art for the dude room or man cave! These can easily be done with your running tee collection or|
your child's favorite shirts as well. Shirts with patterns would be pretty in an office or bedroom.
|So much better than a t-shirt quilt.|
