The Muscle Shirt:
These were so easy to whip up. (Even easier than the t-shirts.)
I put together a quick how-to for you.
- Sewing supplies (either machine, or needle and thread if you are a hand sewer)
Cut front and back from t-shirt.
*Be creative about ribbing. You can buy ribbing at the fabric store, but since I didn’t want to spend money, I took a look around. Ribbed tank tops work great!
Cut ribbing into strips. I think I cut mine into 2 inch strips. Next time I will go three inches, its completely up to you.
Fold the strips in half and iron.
Match shoulders, right sides together. Only sew one side.
Match up edges of neckline and ribbing, right sides together. Sew.
Sew the other shoulder.
Sew ribbing to armholes the same way as the neck.
With shirt right sides together, match bottom hem and arm seams. Pin and sew up each side seam.
Fold ribbing to inside, making sure to catch the stitching on the inside.
*If dad may be dressing the kids, put in a tag. I just used a little piece of ribbon.
Pin and sew. *I like to sew right next to were the shirt and ribbing meet, on the shirt.
That’s it, you’re done….unless you have twins; then repeat.
Oops, I almost forgot the last step: Bribe your boys with Cupcake Goldfish and Matchbox cars and try your hardest to get a decent picture.
And number two:
Wait, we need a twin shot!
These shirts are very easy to whip up. If my instructions were not very clear, let me know. I am happy to answer any questions you have!
