Super Easy Teeshirt Embellishment


I love crocheted flowers. I wish I knew how to crochet . . . Sigh. Anyway, I order a huge bag of all sizes of them for about $6 on eBay and have used them on lots of things. Here is a plain white teeshirt spiffed up with a few of them.


I ironed the flowers onto the shirt using double-sided fusible interfacing, just to hold them in place. Then I sewed them on using a zig-zag stitch and trying to get close to the edges so they don't curl up. They'll probably curl a little in the wash, but they should iron flat. So this whole project cost about $5, including the teeshirt, which is a lot cheaper than similar ones from Boden, Gymboree, etc. By the way, thanks so much for checking out my blog, and I hope to be posting more when summer winds down!
