How do I make my own t-shirt? This article shows you how to create a t-shirt which will make you stand out from the crowd!

Customizing shirts and t-shirts

If you're fed-up of having the same clothes as everyone else, create them. With a few simple steps you can customize your own t-shirt and create your own, unique design. Logo and slogan t-shirts
These are really on-trend right now. You can follow the fashion by making your own custom tee. First of all, get hold of a plain t-shirt. Designs always stand out well on white t-shirts, but any colour will do. You can pick-up plain t-shirts cheaply in second hand shops, or from basic shops like Primark. The design
If you want to write a slogan, you can use fabric pen to write your own message on your t-shirt. Practice writing your slogan first to ensure that your spelling is correct, and be careful that you have enough space. Nothing is less cool than running out of room to finish your message! Tips
Place a piece of cardboard inside the t-shirt. This provides a solid surface to write on, and will stop the ink bleeding through to the back of your t-shirt. If you want to draw a design on your t-shirt, practice on paper first. Light coloured t-shirts can be see-through so tracing the design on cardboard is better than drawing free-hand.

Printed t-shirts

Where to find slogans or images?
If you want a printed slogan or a photo on a t-shirt, look no further than sites like Cafepress.co.uk, which enable you to make your own unique mugs and printed gifts.
Association with websites
You can upload photos to the site, and order custom printed shirts. The T-shirt studio is another site which offers personalised mugs, promotional shifts and custom mouse mats from your own uploaded designs. Alternatively, shops such as Boots which process photos can have t-shirts printed with your own design. Tools needed for t-shirt printing
Not all sites and shops offering custom printed studio gifts allow you to design your own goodies. If you want to do this, you may need to purchase some iron-on t-shirt transfer paper. Author's suggestion
You can buy a pack of 10 sheets from WHSmith. Then, all you need to do is print your photo or slogan onto the sheet using an inkjet printer, before cutting out the design and carefully ironing it on to your sweater or t-shirt. The final word
As you can see, there are lots of ways to make your own shirts. You can also have matching personalized mugs. All these are cool, affordable and make great gifts for friends and family.
