steps DIY initial appliquéd t shirts

Step 1: Make a template for initial. I made mine in Word using Arial Black size 325. Trace the outside of letter under the protective paper of appliqué paper.

Step 2: Peel the back side of appliqué paper away and iron onto the back of printed cotton fabric.

Step 3: Cut the letter out using good scissors. You do not want to have fraying on the fabric edges.

Step 4: Iron on the front of t-shirt following the instructions on the appliqué paper packaging.

You can stitch around the edges of the letter using your sewing machine.
