Individual T-shirts

Whether strawberries, small dogs or dragons - turn a plain, white T-shirt into a very special top - with your kids' favorite motif. How it works? We'll reveal here.

DIY fans beware! Today we redesign white T- shirt quite easy. The sweet designs transform simple tops for children into unique items with Lieblingteil-Garantie and are also for a memorable children's birthday a great idea. We show you four examples of how to make Step by Step T-shirts yourself . So, let's go!

Print T-shirt with strawberry motif

A shirt for real girls: The fruity motif in strawberry shape makes you want to summer and delicious berries.

You need: Strawberry template of about 25 cm length (from the internet), 1 paper napkin with berry motifs (eg of ppd), 1 white T-shirt, serviette technical adhesive for textiles (eg Textile Potch from Javana, Craft store), pencil, scissors, cardboard, soft brush

That's how it works:

1. Paint and cut the strawberry onto the napkin (you may need to iron it carefully beforehand).

2. Remove the top layer of the napkin. Slide cardboard between the two T-shirt pages. Coat the front of the T-shirt with some napkin glue and place the motif layer in the middle.

3. Carefully spread the napkin glue over the napkin motif from the inside to the outside with a soft brush, fix the edges and allow to dry.

4. For better durability, fix the motif according to the manufacturer's instructions.

T-shirt with dogs make yourself

How cute - and perfect for little girls who are very fond of dogs.

What you need: Paper napkins with motif, white T-shirt, napkin adhesive for fabric (eg from Hobby Line; department store, about 4 euros), scissors, brush

That's how it works:

1. Rip or cut napkin motifs.

2. Apply a thin layer of napkin glue to the T-shirt (free of finish and softener) on the area to be covered.

3. Remove the top layer of the napkin motif and place it on the T-shirt.

4. Carefully spread the napkin glue from the inside to the outside with a soft brush, keeping the edges firmly in place.

5. Repeat the motif with napkin glue for better fixation.

6. Let it dry for 24 hours.

7. Fix by intensive left-side ironing (about 5 minutes on silk or cotton setting, depending on the fabric used).

TIP: The glue can also go beyond the edge of the paper motif. It dries completely transparent.

Make t-shits yourself - with dragon motif

Of course, the boys should not go out empty-handed. When the big sister gets a printed T-shirt, we have equal rights. And what suits better than a cute motive with a big, dangerous kite ...?!

You need: 1 sheet of sponge rubber (craft shop), 2 wooden blocks (possibly zus├Ągen), all-purpose glue (eg Pritt), white T-shirt, pencil, t scissors, brush or small paint roller, iron

That's how it works:

1. Transfer dragon and tongue with pencil to foam rubber and cut out.

2. Stick backwards on 2 wooden blocks.

3. Paint the textile with a brush or roller on the sponge rubber.

4. Print dragon and tongue on the t-shirt. Let dry.

5. Fix the paint by ironing according to the manufacturer's instructions.

Tip: Before printing, push a cardboard into the T-shirt so that the color does not get soaked on the back. Carefully remove cardboard after drying.

Make T-shirt with hoop yourself

We would also wear this T-shirt. The old hoops were ironed on the fabric. How did we manage that? It was not hard ...

You need: old embroidery as template, embroidery hoop, 2 different sizes (haberdashery), transfer foil for textiles (stationery), T-shirt, inkjet printer, scissors (haberdashery), iron

That's how it works:

1. Select 2 embroidery motifs and stretch in 2 embroidery hoops of different sizes.

2. Scanning subjects (at home or in the copy shop). The motifs have to be mirrored so that they are on the right side of the t-shirt.

3. Print out on the special transfer foil with inkjet printer, following the manufacturer's instructions.

4. Cut the motifs just along the hoop.

5. Arrange the motifs on the T-shirt with the motif facing downwards and iron on the T-shirt according to the manufacturer's instructions.

6. Allow the t-shirt to cool down and then carefully pull off the carrier foil.
