DIY: Aztec Pocket Tee

Aztec prints are lining the high street this season and are a great way to make a statement. Instead of following like sheep in a world of mass production, let's brave it and be unique! This week, I headed to Oxfam Emporium in Manchester and found this star buy which I decided to embellish with a bold Aztec print to create a quirky new style.
Why not head to the Oxfam Online Shop and pick any style/colour jersey you fancy and try this fashion DIY out for yourself!
YOU WILL NEED
Needle & Thread
Select where on your jersey you would like the printed design, such as the edge of a pocket, collar or hem. Cut to size - remembering to leave a little extra either side for hemming.
Carefully fold each end of the printed braid to neaten up the edges. A little handy tip to help maintain a tight fold when hemming is to press with a warm iron. Then pin the braid in place - here I followed the stitching along the top of the pocket as a guide.
Thread the needle. Using the pins to guide you, start from the top edge of the printed braid using a hemming stitch all the way along. Then do the same on the bottom edge until secure.
Complete your DIY by pressing the jersey to give it a professional finish.
It's that simple, you'll be doing it all the time. Good luck and Enjoy!
