Colour Blocked T Shirts

Whilst browsing the fabulous Pinterest recently I came across this blog post for making your own Colour Block T-shirts which had been pinned, I dutifully re-pinned and went shopping.

I bought my T shirts from H & M for £3.99 each. I have a colour block T shirt previous purchased also in H & M for £9.99 which I love and have worn to death.

I cut the T Shirts using my rotary cutter and pinned and sewed the two halves of each t-shirt together using the zigzag stitch as suggested in the original post.

Please excuse my tubby tummy, I'm working on reducing it!

I gave the seams a quick press with an iron and hey presto I now I have 2 lovely Colour Blocked T-shirts.

  1. A lovely way to make, not one, but two,unique t-shirts.
    Have a lovely week.

  2. What a brilliant idea. I love how simple but effective it is.

  3. What an amazing effect. You have just turned 2 relatively boring t-shirts into something amazing. Great job!

  4. Great upcycling!

  5. What a great way of making some fairly ordinary T-shirts look very sophisticated.

  6. A great idea for turning simple t-shirts into something much more effective. You've inspired me to see if there is anything I can do to remake some of my boring old t-shirts!

  7. I have been wanting to make a color block shirt like that but have been afraid of ruining both shirts if I try! :) Love your new top! You're inspiring me to try it!

  8. What a great idea your shirts look fab.

    Just popped over from Handmade Monday

  9. These look lovely, a great way to change the look of a t shirt.
