DIY Tee Shirts for the Wedding Party

PriMarilynLy Paper

July 7, 2016

We have a wedding coming up this summer! On a recent trip to the craft store, I found everything I needed for the bride's bachelorette party.

So far, we have a shirt made for the bride and maid of honor. Bridesmaids are to follow. The wedding colors are black, white and teal with a touch of metallic gold. The letters reflect the colors. These shirts are fun and easy to make. I am looking forward to some great photos from the party!

You will need:

JOY embroidered letters

Tee shirts (prewash if needed)

Iron, ironing board

Pressing cloth

Masking tape (optional)

1. Read the instructions on the packaging for the embroidered letters before beginning your project.

2. Use a piece of masking tape to provide a straight line across the front of the tee shirt, then place the letters, spacing evenly. Add a small dot of fabric glue to the back of each letter to hold in place. Remove the tape before pressing. 

3. Iron the letters in place as directed on the package. Reverse the tee shirt and press the letters from the wrong side of the fabric.

Voilà! Now you have a cute tee for the bride and her maid of honor. You could also make one for the mother of the bride, each of the bridesmaids and anyone else in the wedding party - even the groom!

TIP:  Joy embroidered letters are available in a variety of fonts and colors. 

If you don't see the color you need, letters can also be dyed with sprays (quick and easy), fabric markers or paint.
