Fun, Repurposed Shirt

I saw the cutest shirt on this girl yesterday, that she has bought at Old Navy and knew I had to make it for my daughter!! It was so fun to make. The first thing I did was bought 2 shirts that were the same color. I found them $3.00 dollars, love that!!


I cut the first shirt in one inch strips around the shirt.....did as many strips as I could..


Then I made the strips into a ruffles....


After the ruffles are made, I pinned them onto the shirt, creating hearts..... this was so helpful to do, so you had a design to sew on...


This is what it looked like before I sewed it on....then the fun part...SEWING


I just followed my lines and sewed the ruffles on to my shirt....so fun and easy!!


The final look on my beautiful model....


close up..this is after it has been washed, so the ruffles have curled in a little.

Very cute. I love all of the little ruffles. I'd love it if you came and linked this top up at my Top-toberfest link party. I'm celebrating tops all week long and would love it if you'd join in on the fun. Feel free to link up any other top related projects you've worked on.
