The ultimate in easy handmade.
Here’s a pattern for making a safety pin skull on a T-shirt. You’ll use bobbins for eyes.
And if it’s a T-shirt you really love and want to wear post-Halloween, just remove the evidence. Genius.
- Black T-shirt
- 22 size 00 Dritz® safety pins
- 5 size 0 Dritz® safety pins
- 26 size 1 Dritz® safety pins
- 10 bobbins (Dritz® class 66 shown)
- Tissue paper and marker
- T-shirt insert (scrap cardboard will do)
- Hand needle & thread
- PDF pattern
Print PDF pattern and cover it with tissue paper, then transfer all of the dots to the tissue paper. Position cardboard insert inside of T-shirt (so you don’t pin through both layers of your shirt). Center tissue paper pattern on your T-shirt and insert safety pins at dots using print-out as a guide for pin direction and position. Mark positions for bobbins with pins. Tear the tissue paper away, and then sew bobbins at eye sockets and cross-bone ends. Put on your shirt, and go outside and spook somebody.
