When game day is around the corner, you want to stand out with a fun t-shirt creation. My sister and I were shopping the day before the Super Bowl and she was determined to find herself a 49ers top. She normally is not a 49ers fan, but felt that she should support them since they won her fantasy football championship for her. We looked everywhere, but 49er gear is not that popular in Florida. She found kids shirt for a decent price, but did not like the fit. I promised to help her modify it to her liking.
Cut tiny holes along the edge of the shirt about an inch in between each ribbon hole and about a 1/3 inch to a half an inch from the edge.
Lace the ribbon through the holes from the top of the shirt to to the bottom using under lacing technique and showing the printed side of the ribbon as much as possible as you lace. Since I cut the holes so tiny, I sometimes had to fold the ribbon so that it would fit through the holes.
Make a bow at the bottom of the shirt.
If you also don’t love the sleeve length, feel free to cut them or roll them up. The roll can be permanent with 2 quick hand stiches similar to the ones used for the jean cuffs here. I chose not to do it as we were making this the day of the Super Bowl and did not have a ton of time.
