If you’ve been reading here for a while, you’ll know that I love Ribbon Tees – I started making them even before I had a blog when I used my embroidery machine instead of vinyl. In the past I’ve always sewn on the ribbon, but for those of you that are intimidated by sewing, I thought I’d put together a quick No Sew Ribbon Tee option, wahoo!
It comes together super quickly, you’re going to love making this! This post may contain affiliate links.
No Sew Ribbon Tee
Supplies for a Ribbon Tshirt
–Blank Tshirt (I got this tank top at walmart)
–Ribbon in desired pattern (I think this ribbon is from Michaels – it was in my stash, so I can’t remember for sure)
—Speed Sew Fabric Glue – it dries really quickly so it works great for this project
–Optional: Heat Transfer Vinyl cut into a name for personalization
No Sew Ribbon Tee Instructions – Video Tutorial
I put together a quick (just about a minute long!) video tutorial to talk you through the process, and then I’ll write out the instructions below that in case you prefer reading to watching. Here’s the video tutorial:
How to Make a No-Sew Ribbon Tee
- Cut ribbon to slightly wider than the width of the tee
- Turn under each end of the ribbon to give it a finished edge. Secure with fabric glue.
- Attach ribbon to tee using fabric glue and press into place.
- Make bow as desired. Attach bow using fabric glue and let dry completely.
