In this article, we are sewing a nice unisex t-shirt for kids.

We are making the Happy-Kids T-shirt. The sewing pattern is available at the bottom of the page, along with a free in-depth video tutorial.

Let's start with the tools and fabric we need:

Pins and/or clips, scissors, and fabric.


Optional tools are Gluepen and rotary cutter.



I choose a jersey fabric for my T-shirt.

 

Sewing Pattern:


 

1 - Cutting the Fabric.

A short-sleeved t-shirt usually has around four pattern parts.


The sewing pattern should include a front and back piece.

The Happy-Kids t-shirt does also has separate sleeves for a better result.


The ribbons are optional, but it gives the T-shirt a more "professionally made" look.

2 - The Shoulder Seams

We lay the front and back piece on top of each other. We are making the seam on the inside of the garment. That means that we lay the fabric the wrong side out. When I lay the shoulders on top of each other, I make sure that the fabric shape looks right. It's a nice way to remove any upcoming errors.

How I use the Gluepen:

I use glue and make two glue spots on both shoulders. The glue I use will dissolve when I'm washing the T-Shirt. I use glue to make sure that the fabric is perfectly aligned.
