Rock On!

From time to time I join a group of very talented musicians for a little jam session with my guitar.  The last time I went I was inspired by a T-shirt I saw one of the guys wearing and thought I'd make my own version.

guitar applique, DIY Guitar T shirt



I just used a vintage t-shirt pattern, opened up the neck a bit, added some fullness under the arms and then appliqued my pretty guitar heads on it using some scrap cottons I had on hand.

I used these images with my Silhouette to make the outlines:

 

I ironed on the sewable heat transfer interfacing to the back of my fabric, cut out the images with the Silhouette, and then ironed them onto the T-shirt.  Then I sewed around all the edges, otherwise it would probably just wash right off.

That's it!  Super easy.  Rock on~

very cute idea! I love how it turned out. You just want to start playing along on your shirt now- the only thing that would make it cooler was if it somehow made noises :)

How cool is that??? I am definitely going to make that for my guitar-God son.
