UT Tutorial – DIY Charmed Tee

You’ve probably seen those cool printed faux necklace tees before. You know the cute ones that look like you have a whole bunch of  bling around your neck? I usually pass them by because they’re too expensive or they’re just not…quite what I’m looking for.

Well, we always know a custom DIY tee is always better! With today’s tutorial and a special charms pack, I’ll show you how to turn a plain tee into a charmed masterpiece with just a little bit of embroidery.

The best part about the Vintage Charms pack is that it gives you a huge impact even with a small hoop. These little charms are only about 2 inches high at the largest, and they stitch in a flash on all kinds of fabrics, even light drape fabrics like your favorite summer tee.

How do you connect your charms onto pretty stitched chains? Easy! It’s just a bit of freestyle machine magic.

    Those designs are telling me they want to end up on leather.

    This is awesome…I bought the charm pak! Would water soluble stabilizer work just as well or do you really need to leave the cutaway in the shirt? Thanks!

      I would really recommend cutaway unless you stitching on something heavy like a sweatshirt. Otherwise your stitches will likely shift while it’s sewing. The light mesh stabilizer is nearly invisible under tees. I swear I can’t feel any of the cutaway when I’m wearing it!
