T-Shirt Makeover with FSL Crochet Yo-Yo Design

For this project we used the FSL Crochet Yo-Yo Motif. You can read about how to work with this design on the page Crochet with Yo-Yo Insert.

You will need a T-shirt, cotton embroidery or machine quilting threads, woven water soluble stabilizer (mesh) such as Vilene, small beads or buttons and any fine transparent fabric such as tulle, organza or chiphon. It's possible to use ribbons made of these fabrics. Ribbons must be 2 inches (5 cm wide).

It's very helpful to make a template of the design. Using your embroidery software, print out the screenshot of the design. This template will help you to choose the best position of the design on the T-shirt and how many finished patterns you will need.

We worked with a new T-shirt that had unfortunately gotten several grease stains.

For this purpose, we needed six patterns. We embroidered the pattens as described in the guide to Crochet with Yo-Yo Insert.

After all six patterns were ready, we placed them over the T-shirt to cover all the spots.

Then we pinned all the motifs in place and secured each motif with a short and not very dense zig-zag stitch along the outer edge of each motif.

After that we cut away the fabric under the embroidery.

We returned the T-shirt to the sewing machine and secured the inserts with another row of zig-zag stitches.

We hope that you liked our idea and will come up with many of your own.
