When thinking of wearing a unique shirt, the first thing you have to do is to determine your purpose in designing your own shirt. Are you in it to promote something or do you just want to be different from the rest? Once you zero in on the purpose, then it is easy to design the shirt you want.

Pick up a colour scheme that would suit your design best. Make sure you don't opt for light hues as they are not visible from a distance if you are using pastel coloured shirts.

Ensure your design is cohesive and there is harmony in all the elements that appear on your shirt. You also have to figure out where to place the design on your shirt whether it is centred, in the upper corner or on the hemlines.

Another method is to screen print your design. You will need to cut out your design on plain paper, put a screen over it, throw a blob of ink and spread it using a squeegee. Remove the screen and presto, your shirt is ready.

You can also try your hand at bleach painting. Pour bleach into a container and dip a paint brush. Remove excess drops to prevent the bleach from staining your clothes and the shirt you are working on. With light strokes, start painting your design on your shirt. When done, let your shirt dry under the sun.
