In case you have been living under a rock and haven’t noticed, embellished t-shirts are ridiculously popular this season, and for good reason---cause they’re cute!
I, however, refuse to spend $1.94628 million for a designer J Crew or Ann Taylor t-shirt so I decided to make some of my own.
I started by going to Target and purchasing a cheep solid color shirt and pre-washed it.
Next I used a variety of fabric scraps to cut rough floral shapes in 3 sizes.
I layered the shapes to build flowers.
After arranging the flowers on the t-shirt in a pleasing pattern, I used a hand needle and beads to sew the flowers to the shirt.
And then Dun dun dun.
I had an embellished t that looked something like this:
Don't worry. Oadie has been taking his role at Hart Designs very seriously and helped.
By using my pin cushion as a pillow.
We had so much fun making the first t that I decided to make a second which ended up like this:
Cordelia doesn't get to try it on until she gives the first one back. Greedy little shirt stealer.
