Flower t-shirt refashion

Pin It


I made this t-shirt, using 2 t-shirts that I bought for less than $1 at Target.

I didn't take pictures of the process, but it's pretty simple, so I will give a description of the steps I took.

I kept one t-shirt in its original shape, and cut flower shapes out of the other one, using my BigShot. But you could do this easily cutting freehand flowers, since the shape of the flowers doesn't matter too much. I also cut flowers out of burgundy tulle.

I placed different sized flowers on top of one another, some of them layered with the tulle in between.

Then, I used my sewing machine to attach them to the t-shirt.
I am not so good at sewing fine pattern, so I just went back and forth, using a straight stitch. (See picture below.)
I really love the end result, it went from a simple, basic t-shirt to something special!

It turned out lovely. I love it, but I'd have to free hand them all and that would take FOREVER! I just started a link party and I would love it if you would drop in and add your t-shirt refasion! http://imtopsyturvy.com/index.php/2010/07/topsy-turvy-tuesdays-1/

Visiting from Someday Crafts. LOVE this shirt! I made something with a similar idea but I am lazy and hot glued all the flowers on!
