How to Make a Simple BYU Shirt

So, if you've been reading this blog for a while you know I Love making BYU shirts for my kids.  

Usually my go-to way of making shirts is Freezer paper and Fabric paint-- which I love to do.  It's super easy and  looks great. It just requires a lot of time-- for drying. 

A couple weeks  ago it was time again for new BYU shirts for the ever-growing kids, but this time I decided to incorporate my favorite outlet-- Sewing! 

 This way of making shirts look really great and Bonus you don't have to wait for paint to dry so it's really quick!

Here's how to make your own:

1. Heat 'n Bond adhesive
2. Print out of Y logo
3.  Fabric, for background and Y
4. Iron
5. Sewing notions
6. Blue T-shirts. (I usually grab cheap ones and stock up)

STEP ONE: Gather materials.
I used ribbing fabric for the white which looks great.

STEP TWO:  Cut out fabric and Heat 'n Bond paper to size of Y's. 
Trace the ovals and Ys onto the smooth side of the Heat 'N Bond paper. 
ATTENTION: Make sure your Y is backwards when tracing. 
This will ensure it's the right direction when you're all done.

STEP THREE: Iron bumpy side of heat 'n bond onto the wrong side of each  fabric.

STEP FOUR: Once all ironed, cut each oval and Y out.
Peal off backing of ovals.

STEP FIVE: Iron oval in place on shirt. 
Remove Y backing paper and iron white Y in place on the oval.

STEP SIX: To hold everything in place stitch following the edges of the Y and the oval.
Make sure to pick coordinating thread.

 All done and ready to wear!

Ready to go and support those Cougars!
