DIY skeleton t-shirt and jumper

Whilst looking at the wild fox website I saw the skeleton jumper, and loved it also with it being close to Halloween I thought I would make the t-shirt and jumper myself. As the wild fox jumper is £140 I couldn't afford to buy it. You can still wear the t-shirt and jumper after Halloween. The t-shirt looks great with a leather jacket and leggings or jeggings. This DIY is so easy to do and doesn't take long at all :)

Use the Skeleton stencil to copy.I placed my card under the printed stencil and pressed hard whilst tracing the image so it indented through so you have an outline on the cardboard.

Once you have drawn the skeleton onto the cardboard cut the image out and place onto your whie PVC fabric.

Once the stencil is placed on the PVC fabric ( n the non PVC side) Draw around the stencil to have the image transferred onto the fabric.

Once you have transferred the image to the fabric, cut the pattern out non the fabric.

Once you have cut the whole pattern it should look like this.

Try the jumper or t-shirt on and place the skeleton on your top to see where to place the fabric. With a pin place the pin where you would like to place the fabric.

Use fabric glue to attach the fabric to your jumper or t-shirt.

Place the fabric onto top where you have place the pin. Nice you have stuck the fabric to the jumper or t-shirt, remove the pin and let the glue try. Make sure you have a piece if cardboard or wood in-between then t-shirt or jumper. So the glue doesn't go through to the otherside of the t- shirt or jumper.

And voila the products are made.

If you want to add the bones on the sleeves just cut out 4 small bones and do the same.

I would love to hear your comment :)
