One Direction Tank From White Polo

I had a dress code my 8th grade year and we had to wear polo shirts and khakis. Now that I'm going into high school I have no use for these plain shirts except to cut them up and make something out of them. I'm a Directioner and I saw this shirt online:

It was instant love.

To change a boring old polo into a rockin' 1D shirt, keep reading.

Get the polo (turned inside out), . . .
and I used another tank as a guide, so place it on top.

( be sure to pin them together to avoid moving)

Outline the tank with a pencil onto the polo.

Now flip them back over and repeat.
Now just cut on the lines . . .

Follow the instructions to hem on my Shoulderless Refitted Shirt tutorial. Then sew it down.

This will be the result:

Now for the 1D:

Start by getting some interfacing and cut a piece big enough to cover where you want the 1D to be.
Draw on the desired picture. (Be sure to put the side that turns sticky once ironed is on the opposite side. Otherwise if the sticky side is up then the 1D is backwards. The picture below shows the sticky side facing the ironing board, not the camera. Please comment if that is confusing.)
After cutting out the interfacing, cut out the same shapes onto desired fabric.
Sew interfacing to fabric. (I just sewed a line down the middle. You don't need to go all the way around the letter/number, just enough to keep them together (purple))

Now sew the 1D to the shirt by going all the way around them in an outline. (green)   

finished! (I ended up cutting the bottom off )
