You will need a fat quarter of knit fabric, water-soluble stabilizer (optional), embroidery and sewing threads, and velcro tape.

Step One: Hoop the fabric. We did not use any stabilizer. If you are in doubt, use any light-weight watersoluble stabilizer.
Embroider the file "T-shirt_front" once.
Embroider the file "T-shirt back" once, then make the mirror image of the file and embroider it once more.
We offer two files for the sleeves. One file contains the design aligned with the straight grain of the fabric. If you're using plaid or striped fabric, use this file. You'll need to embroider it twice. If your fabric is one-color, use the file with two sleeves, which you'll need to embroider only once.

Step Four: Place the back and the front together, right side to right side, and stitch together at the shoulders. Stitch inside the zigzag outline. Seam allowance should be about 1/8".

Step Five: Fold the hem of the sleeve 1/8" and straight stitch it.
Thread a needle and manually baste the sleeve.
