The Personalized DIY Doodle Tee

Graphic tees are awesome but as I’m all about creating my own one-of-a-kind style I rarely find any individual enough to please my unique self and end up putting on my refashionista thinking cap and creating them myself.

The Personalized DIY Doodle Tee

I am completely thrilled with my latest no-sew transformation! Raid your t-shirt hoard and get your abstract art on with the personalized DIY doodle tee!

Grab a t-shirt, chalk, permanent marker and a plastic wrapped piece of cardboard.

Pop the cardboard into the t-shirt to prevent the marker leaking through the fabric.

If, like me, you’re not super confident about drawing on fabric do a practice run and draw your basic design on a scrap of fabric first with the chalk then trace over it with the marker.

Lightly sketch out your design onto the t-shirt with the chalk. (As I am most certainly not an artiste I went for a very simple abstract version of myself)

Carefully trace over the chalk with the permanent marker and let dry completely.

Once dry, place a piece of fabric over the design and iron on high heat to set your design.
