How to Fringe a T-shirt

There are no basic rules which you have to follow while fringing your T-shirt, shirt or any other piece of clothing you are bored with. Decorating t-shirts by using carefully placed cuts can be fun and interesting!


All you need is a sharp knife or scissors, a cutting board or other material that won’t be damaged by your cutting and your imagination.

However, one thing to keep in mind before you go on with your job is to remember getting rid of hem of your T-shirt. After all you do not want any thing hindering you while you are engrossed in creating your masterpiece.

As far as I am concerned I’ll be more than happy to cut a T-shirt but can never ever wear something like that.

(From Wikipedia) Other methods of decoration used on T-shirts include airbrush, applique, embroidery, impressing or embossing, and the ironing on of either flock lettering, heat transfers, or dye-sublimation transfers. Laser printers are capable of printing on plain paper using a special toner containing sublimation dyes which can then be permanently heat-transferred to T-shirts.

n the 1980s, thermochromatic dyes were used to produce T-shirts that changed color when subjected to heat. The Global Hypercolour brand of these was a common sight on the streets of the UK for a few years, but has since mostly disappeared. These were also very popular in the United States among teenagers in the late 1980s. A downside of color-change garments is that the dyes can easily be damaged, especially by washing in warm water, or dye other clothes during washing.

At the turn of the 21st century, designing custom T-shirts online became more popular. Popular websites began to use digital printing (such as Direct to Garment or DTG printing) to allow customers to design their own T-shirts online with no minimum orders. In the beginning, DTG could not print well on dark garments; however, with the help of some online T-Shirt retailers, printer manufacturers such as T-Jet have all but perfected the process, providing consumers with many more printing options.
