T Shirt refashion

I just love all of the corsage t shirts!  I got a really pretty one from JCrew for Christmas.  I have been thinking of how I wanted to make one of my own for a while.  Then Jen at Tatertots and Jello refashioned a cardigan!  My lightbulb went off.  (or on)

I had some of this stretcy, ruffled ribbon that I wanted to do a project with, but never got to it.  And then I have all these tired, plain old tshirts, so I decided to give it a whirl.

All I did was pin the ribbon on and sew!  On my shirt, I did a zig zag stitch, but on the little one I did a straight stitch.  I think the straight was better. 

I was wearing mine yesterday, and as I put my little bit to bed, she said, "Mommy, I like your shirt!  Make one for me!  Now!" 
I hope she doesn't get that pushiness from me! 

This ribbon sells for $2.99 at Hobby Lobby.  Practically every week, they put all of their ribbon on sale for 1/2 off!  So I paid $1.50 for it and the tshirts were some we had on hand!  What a deal!

I am linking up with A Soft Place to Land for DIY day!

Andrea, don't you just love it when the light bulbs go off...or on!! You're funny. I LOVE this and especially love when we make things great with just a little effort and little money. Super cute! I hope you guys are feeling well today.

Thank you for stopping by my blog. Looks like we both have a pair of sassy little girls. Lucky us! That might be where our similarities end though. I cannot sew! My creativity is very much limited to writing. Oh well!
