Decorate a T-Shirt

Home > Brisbane > Craft
Published March 13th 2011

Since its nineteenth century creation, the humble T-shirt has become the most owned item of clothing in the world. T-shirt designs are varied and numerous, but if you can't find what you're looking for, you can always make it.

For a professional look, or for uniformity, try a custom T-shirt printer. A search in the Yellow Pages might locate a business near you; otherwise, you can put in an order online.

Tee Junction is an easy to use site and gives designers the options of putting photographs on their shirts, Foghorn provides a range of pictures and simple graphic combinations and Pistol Clothing gives you a choice of T-shirt colours, as well as hoodies and singlets.

For drawings and kooky pop culture references, try Threadless Tees. The online company takes design submissions from the public and allows its users to vote on the designs that will go on their shirts.

Alternately, you can take the cheaper and easier option by getting crafty. For homemade ironic slogan T-shirts, break out the fabric pens and write it out yourself. The great thing about today's fashion is that you can always claim that the amateur approach is actually edgy and 'deconstructed.'

For more ways to customise your tee, try these simple ideas:

Cut off the sleeves or turn it into a midriff (and once again, the ragged edges are 'deconstructed'),

Sew on buttons, fabric flowers and other embellishments,

Splatter a white T-shirt with paint or try tie-dyeing.
