Choose Your Favorite Colors for a One-of-a-Kind  Shirt!

Choose scraps of your prettiest fabrics to dress up the neckline of a plain t-shirt. A row of colorful scallops in your favorite colors is a lovely touch that will make a plain shirt something special.

Keep in mind that this works best on a shirt with a V or scooped neckline that you can pull over your head without much stretching. The fabric scallops are applied with fusible applique using Heat N Bond Lite and stitched into place, making the neckline less stretchy than it originally was.

Dress Up a T-Shirt with Pretty Fabric

While the shirt shown in the example is white, this treatment will be lovely on a shirt of any color. Simply choose fabric scraps that work nicely with it.

This clever idea comes from Melissa at Polka Dot Chair.

PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest has featured many patterns from vendors participating in the Craftsy Marketplace, most of which have been deleted by Craftsy. It's going to take awhile for us to hunt down new sources for those patterns. In the meantime there are many links to patterns on our site that no longer work. We apologize if this article contains one or more of those links and appreciate your patience while we straighten things out. Thank you!

PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest does not sell or otherwise provide patterns directly. We showcase patterns and projects from various vendors, bloggers and other sources. Please make a note of where you access a pattern (the link in the yellow box toward the end of each Quilting Digest article). That way you can contact Support for that source if you have downloading problems or other issues. Thank you!
