Flowery T-shirts

Happy Monday, my crafties!

I'm still feeling good from the Classy Scrappers crop I attended on Saturday. We had a great time! My daughter, Kristen, ended up coming with me, which I always enjoy. There were also some new friends as well as some people I hadn't gotten to craft with for a while. My friend Sally brought her 13 yr old daughter, Julia, who was such a huge help and quite the crafter.

Maggie taught us all how to enhance a plain t-shirt with fabric flowers. Here's the shirt I made:

 The t-shirt was purchased from Wal-Mart. I really like the neckline and it wasn't too pricey (maybe $5).

Here's a close up....the green flower was made from fabric Maggie provided. The other flowers were from an old shirt I was going to throw away.

Plastic beads were added to the large green flower. The green dots around the blue flowers were created with Tulip paint. The flowers and beads were added using Beacon Fabric Tac glue.

Now, here's Kristen's shirt:

I love the way her's turned out! Her flower placement is great.

Everyone's t-shirt was different and turned out great. We cut the flowers using Sizzix flower dies and the Cuttlebug. Cutting fabric is so simple with dies, even the knit shirt material Kristen and I used for our flowers cut easily.

This is a fun craft that you can do with minimal supplies. And recycling old clothes is a great perk of this project. I would love to see any shirts you've made. Leave me a link to your blog if you have any you'd like to share.

See you soon,
