Using the controls on the left of the T-shirt design maker, change the background of your T-shirt design to match the proposed colour of your T-shirt, choose a graphic you like, and change its colour if you so desire. Alternatively, if your family has a special emblem they use, you can upload it in the graphic section. 

For this specific template, I eliminated the original bars that were included in the design to keep things simple.
