What you need:
Rotary Cutter/ Scissors
Steam a Seam or Pellon fusible webbing
Tshirt scraps (I used 1 tshirt sleeve & the initial cut from another shirt)
Sewing machine or needle + thread
10 minutes or less
|1. Cut through both layers of sleeve creating a long rectangle.|
|2. Sew 2 rectangles together + fuse initial onto center of rectangle (be sure to follow directions)|
|3. Fold rectangle in half & sew ends together- (serge or zig zag stitch if you prefer)|
|And you're finished!|
a few tips: Instead of fusing applique on to cuff you can sew down for more durability.
For a super fast project, just cut few inches off the end of sleeve & hand sew or use fabric markers to add design. (as seen with the purple "e" cuff)
6" measurement works well for 4-6 y I had to make the cuff a little smaller for my 3y.
I think this is a great project for birthday party favors or costumes and is the perfect scrap buster project. They boys are really excited about the Ninjago marathon going on this weekend and I whipped up a few of these in a matter of minutes. What will you be putting on your tee cuffs?
