DIY Video: How To Embroider A T-Shirt

Posted on 27 July 2017


Have you noticed that cute embroidered shirts and jackets are everywhere in stores right now? We honed in on this trend with a big old "WE COULD TOTALLY MAKE THAT" moment and decided to whip up a lil' video to show you just how easy it is to add adorable embroidered flair to your own clothes -- just click above to check it out!

In this video we're focusing on embroidering a T-shirt because there's one sneaky thing you need to know about embroidering on stretchy knit fabrics like T-shirts, baby onesies, sweatshirts, etc. When embroidering on stretch fabrics, the stretchiness of the fabric will not cooperate with your stitches, and your finished embroidered piece will look super distorted...

Luckily there's an easy fix: simply add a special stabilizer to your stretchy fabric, and you can stitch away with great results. We love this stabilizer from Sublime Stitching -- watch the video above to see how easy it is to use. 

OH and speaking of embroidery, we are SO EXCITED about our brand-new, exclusive embroidery patterns -- just released! "Crafts N Thingz" is a collection of cuuuuuute crafty-girly images created specially for Brooklyn Craft Company by Brooklyn-based illustrator Bethany Robertson. They're available as a digital download that you can print at home on standard printer paper, then transfer to any fabric, clothing, tote bag, etc -- and stitch up some seriously cute flair! 

If you make this project, we want to see! Tag your pics @brooklyncraftcompany and #brooklyncraftcompany so we can creep on your crafts!
