I was doing some blog reading and ran across this post:
I fell in LOVE. How cute is this shirt?
Of course I had to make my own! LOL
I followed the simple instructions she gave to the letter lol
I purchased two tshirts. I got the 10-12 for me to wear, and the 14-16 for me to cut up.
I cut the shirt into strips, then cut those strips into sections.
I took those sections and cut out a "flower type shape". They were NOT perfect lol.
I took those shapes and put some in groups of two, kept some single and did a basting stitch on my machine.
I took them, pulled the top thread to gather them up and then tied the two ends of the thread on the top to secure it.
**TIP** use a contrasting color on the bobbin thread. That will come in handy when you start cutting thread lol<----don't EVEN ask lol.
I hand sewed all those flowers on the tshirt and then sewed the leaves down with my machine and voila! lol
I love that this isn't just a "t-shirt". It's a little more jazzy. Has a little "umph" to it!
Coming soon, building my basic wardrobe, books, and some knitting plans.
