Skull T-shirt

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.

Skull T-shirt Project

 And if it’s a T-shirt you really love and want to wear post-Halloween, just remove the evidence. Genius.

Supplies needed:

  • 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.
