Re-purposed Tee (My FaVoRiTe)

I saw this shirt on this great Blog, "ThE PLEATED PoPpY", I made me one and wear it all the time and just made two for birthday presents. It is so fun to make....for a tutorial click at the bottom of the post.
Here are pictures of the shirt I made, with a few pictures of how to make one yourself.

Your first step is to get a plain tee, I found this one at Walmart for $6.00 dollars, you will need another tee to cut up also, I just used an old tee that was stained.

With my extra tee, I cut out a variety sizes of circles. I used two types of material, just a regular knit shirt and then I cut up an old ribbed tank. It gave it a great contrast.

After your circles are cut out, you need to take a tuck in the middle to make it look like a flower. You can do this by hand or with your sewing machine. Fold the circle in half....

Then in fourth's...

Just take a quick stitch across the point of your circle....

Here is what it should look like....

After all your circles are down, hand sew them on your shirt...... after that is all done take your sewing machine and make lines all over the flowers to keep them in place.

NOW, I made two of these shirts for presents and didn't take a final picture...DuH!!!

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 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.
