Pretty Petal Tee Shirt

1 Comments

If you can't make your own tee shirt, design a tee shirt!  This Pretty Petal Tee Shirt from Jen Hagedorn is so easy to make and a great way to jazz up your wardrobe.  Soon you'll be blooming with beautiful flowers all over!

Pretty Petal Tee Shirt

Materials:

  • 2 matching T-shirts
  • Big Shot machine
  • Big Shot Originals die Flower Layers #2
  • Needle and thread

Instructions:

 

  1. Cut one tee into die-sized rectangles and layer 4 at once on the die.

  2. Make piles by size.  For this project, I decided the smallest flower wasn't what I wanted, so I only used the big, medium and smaller flower. Then I layered them, either a big with a medium, medium with a small, or a a big with a small.

  3. Threading a hand needle, I used a running stitch around the center of each 2-layer flower and pulled it to gather it up.

  4. Then I attached the flower to the neckline of the other shirt with a backstitch. You don't want to use a running stitch all the way through or if your thread gets caught on something, the whole thing will bunch up.

  5. Your needle's on the inside of the shirt now. Bring it up a little space away (about an inch and a half depending on what size flowers you're using).

  6. Repeat until your flowers are all along the neckline.

  7. I used about 16 flowers, starting with 2 smaller flowers near the shoulder and then randomized, then ended with 2 small flowers.

great idea. I don't have a cutting machine, yet, and I will be using salvaged t shirts for the flowers. I think I will still end up with a few nice projects. thanks! dianna
