Ribbon Fringe Shirt Tutorial
HOW TO MAKE RIBBON FRINGE SHIRTS
This tutorial is to show you how to turn a plain t-shirt into a stunning ribbon fringe shirt. This project is the perfect way to use small pieces of scrap ribbon. As I've mentioned before in other tutorials, there is no "right or wrong" method for making any of the items I am demonstrating. There may be a better way of making this project, but I hope this tutorial will at least give you a starting point.
**Note: In this tutorial, I used approx. 1/2 yd piece of 1.5" ribbon to go across the width of the shirt and approximately 18 pieces of scrap ribbon about 4" long.
Step 2: I generally lay out ribbon scrap pieces under the large strip of ribbon just to get a general idea of how I want my shirt to look. (Fig 2)
Step 8: Evenly trim ribbon pieces to desired length. Once you have them trimmed, cut the ends of the ribbon pieces at an angle. I generally cut random angles. (Fig 15-16)
Step 9: Seal ribbon ends by lightly brushing a flame from a lighter. This will prevent the ends from fraying because it "melts" the ends.
You can layer the strip that goes across the width of the shirt by adding 7/8" and/or 3/8" strips on top of the 1.5" piece. The only word of caution is that a layered ribbon strip becomes rather stiff, but is still very cute.
1/2 yd each 1.5", 7/8", and/or 3/8"
Heat n Bond Hem Tape in 7/8" and 3/8" width
Step 1. Lay your 1.5" ribbon strip down as the bottom layer.
Step 2. Cut a strip of 7/8" Hem Tape and center on top of 1.5" ribbon. Place 7/8" ribbon on top of the hem tape. Press/hold iron and move slowly across layers until stuck.
Machine washable and either tumble dry on low or hang to dry. I have made some for my daughter and have washed/dried as I do most of my other laundry with no problems. But, if you are making these to sell to customers, I would recommend a gentle care when washing/drying.
Craft Show Idea: You could make the ribbon fringe without ironing them to a shirt. Simply leave the paper strip on the back of the fringe (at the end of step 6). Skip Step 7 and finish step 8 & 9. You can simply sell a neat ribbon fringe and provide instructions to your customers on how to iron the fringe on a shirt as well as care instructions. This will keep cost down for you by not having to invest in shirts. I think it would be a great product to demonstrate at your both to attract customers.
