DIY Tee Shirt Update



“I am not afraid I was born to do this” ~St. Joan of Arc

This is my St. Joan of Arc tee shirt. It started as an understated pink tee from the TJ Maxx clearance rack, but it was a little too plain so I embroidered the word ‘courage’ on it in red thread. I love read and pink together, and I’m obsessed with how it turned out! Originally, I planned on making a tutorial, but there’s really nothing to it. I tried tracing the word on first with pencil, but the pencil wouldn’t show up, so I free handed the embroidery. I didn’t use embroidery floss because I thought it would be too thick.
