I learned how to make these little flowers from a tutorial from Sandi Henderson. I have put
them on a headband and loved how they turned out.
For Christmas this past year, I got a tshirt as a gift from JCrew. Well, it was from my sister in law, but she got it at JCrew. ha ha.
As soon as I opened it I was in love and knew I had to try and make some more!! I am on the verge of ending up with a closet full of these tshirts.
So here is JCrew's version.
Here is my version!
This is actually for my big girl to wear on Easter. I found this little burnout tee at Old Navy. I think it was on sale for around $7. I bought a yard on chiffon at Hobby Lobby for about $3 and I had the tulle and button on hand already. I am sure I did this for less than JCrew!
I took a look at how mine was made. The flowers are all handsewn to a piece of tulle and then the tulle is sewn to the shirt. I went ahead and did it this way. I made two, one for each of my girls and I took a tip I found in between. I found a post on Tatertots and Jello, where Jen made throw pillows with yoyo's on them. She gave a tip that you should attatch the yoyo's to one another before sewing them to the pillow. I took this advice with the flowers and tried it on the second shirt. I worked out much better!
So now, I have all of these little lovely flowers that will soon be attatched to headbands for Sunday.
I did one with just the chiffon, one with tulle twisted in with it and one with a sparkly brad in the center. One thing I've done that has made the flower making easier, is tying the fabric in a knot at the end and using that as your center starting point.
I will wait until Easter to show you the whole ensemble! I'm excited how the outfits turned out.
