Hello! I’m Becky, one of the 6 “Chicks” who writes on The Crafting Chicks. I am so excited to share one of my favorite projects with you on this fabulous site. We get inspired whenever we read fun blogs like Rae Gun! It is filled with so many great treats! We at the Crafting Chicks love to inspire you as well!
I love making fun things to wear and wanted to make a cute corsage type t-shirts. I found two shirts at Target for $1.98 each, (Ah, how I love Target. These shirts having been hanging out in the bottom of my “to-do craft” pile. I finally got a vision for what I wanted and got working.
- 2 of the same t-shirts (If you are going to do this with a friend, I would suggest just buying 3 shirts and getting one as large as you can so you can share the fabric from it.)
- a needle and thread
- tulle (I did mine in a matching color, but do what you like.)
I cut out two fabric pieces and one piece of tulle for each flower I wanted. I wanted my flowers to have the fun contrast of the tulle in between so that is where I put that piece. I think it might be fun to add another layer of tulle or you could do more layers of the fabric flowers if you wanted.
Then I laid the circles down on my shirt to get the spacing the way I wanted. I don’t think you can go wrong here. I would just place them where you want. I guess I should mention that you probably want an odd number of flowers. It will look better aesthetically.
Now I have to admit, I am not a huge pinner, but it made this project so much easier. So go ahead and grab those pins and put those flowers in their place.
To secure my flowers to the shirt, I used a straight stitch in a circle shape. I used a lighter color for the thread cause I liked the contrast and the circle gave the flower a cute shape.
Sew all your flowers onto your shirt and in no time you will have…
I can’t beleive how quickly this came together and it really didn’t cost me much at all to make. I am so excited to have another fun cute t-shirt!
Thanks for welcoming us on this fun blog. We hope to have some of you stop by to see what we are up to.
