DIY : T-Shirt Flower Tank

T-Shirt Flower Tank

I am just beyond tickled that I can actually do this! I met a gal at my local scrapbook store the other day that was wearing a funky t-shirt that had some ruffly florals stitched on it and when she shared with me that she made it herself I asked her to share with me how...and she did! She actually just cut several hearts from an old t-shirt and then starting at the top shoulder area of her shirt, she simply started sewing on the hearts with just a bit of stitching in the middle to her shirt (she hand-stitched with embroidery floss). For Zoey's tank here I didn't even cut hearts, I just cut haphazard circles and using my sewing machine I zig-zag stitched the circles to her tank in a cluster and look what I ended up with! I am now furiously digging through our closets looking for old t-shirts to cut up! I Googled corsage t-shirts and floral t-shirts and came up with a ton of tutorials on making these as well. Here are some of my faves: Corsage Tee by Enchantresses 3, t-shirt refashion by Little Birdie Secrets and fabric flower tutorial by Hey Jen Renee.

Enjoy!
