Happy 2013! I hope the year has gotten off on a great start for all of you! I am excited to share my first tutorial of the year! I know you will love it as these shirts are very popular! I actually began this project last year, but I just now got around to finishing it! I did not have my own embroidery machine at the time, so I had to get the monogram finished by a friend, but I can now do it myself!
Grey and White Small Chevron Fabric
Embroidery Machine (or a great friend with one)
Step 1: Pre-wash your t-shirt and chevron fabric.
Step 2: Draw the pocket shape on the wrong side of the chevron fabric.
Step 3: Decide which color you want your monogram and embroider your initials in the center of the pocket.
Step 4: Serge the edge of the pocket shape.
Step 5: Fold and iron the pocket shape into place.
Step 6: Sew the top seam of the pocket, with a 1″ seam allowance.
Step 7: Pin the pocket to the desired location of the t-shirt.
Step 8: Sew the pocket on the shirt, but make sure you do not sew the pocket shut! I did two seams for reinforcement and because I like the look of it!
Here is the finished shirt! I just love how it turned out!
I also made one for myself with a pink monogram!
Update: I am selling these shirts over in my Etsy shop if you love them but don’t want to make it yourself!
