Remember my poor ruined shirt from this post?
Well I decided I'm going to turn it into something more useful. You know that lovely interlock knit is wonderful for many thing.
Cut all the seams off
Then I cut off the damaged shoulder.
Cut a strip going up
Stitched down the middle
(My little helper. :D)
Gather, then fold in half so both sides of the ruffle face the same direction. Start to roll.
This is the bottom of the flower. Secure it with a few stitches through the base of the flower
Size up the base of your flower on another piece of fabric
cut a circle
Use fabric-tac to clue the circle to the base
Finished flower. Now to make a lined clip for it...
4.25 inches of matching grosgrain ribbon (and you'll be using hot glue for lining your clip)
heat seal the ends to prevent fraying
Glue along the whole backside of the top
Then along the whole topside
This is what it looks like with the top glued
put a dot of glue on both inside parts of the clip.
Pinch your ribbon in there (don't worry, it won't mess with the hinge)
then glue the last little bit onto the backside
Here's your finished clip!
Glue along the whole top
Attach your flower
(I love it in her hair too. :D)
I still have a bunch of t-shirt leftover. I think I'll go make some more. :D
