i originally found this idea on good ol' pinterest, (the source for 99 percent of my DIY's haha), and although i'm not much of a sewer, i found it suprisingly simple!  i think its a super quick + creative way to snazzy-up a plain t-shirt! hope you all enjoy :)


a l l   y o u   n e e d :
plain t-shirt
patterned fabric

1. find a plain t-shirt + some cool fabric. i went to the thrift store and found a cheap piece of fabric for the pocket but you could definitely just use some fabric scraps! and the t-shirt is a men's shirt from Old Navy.

2. cut out your pocket. try different sizes and see what you like best!

3. pin + sew. using pins, find the perfect placement for the pocket. this step took me a little while but i would recommend trying it on to see where the pocket lays on your body. then it's sewing time! i hand-sewed mine on, but if you are nifty with a sewing machine i would definitely recommend using one! (it saves you many pesky and painful pokes haha)

voila! you got a rad t-shirt :)

much love,
