i finally was able to squeeze in some time for selfish crafting!
i mentioned awhile back that i really wanted to try some shirt embellishments, and it was more fun than i expected.
my mistake was in getting too thin of a shirt as this one got caught in my machine a lot.
live and learn.
i had some white jersey on hand and decided to just use it, even though one side was ribbed.
i just flipped it over and used the backside.
i just free handed a bunch of random sized circles on 2 layers of fabric, definitely not uniform.
that was a fun challenge for me, since i tend to like symmetry.
then i pinned them all in place.
i was not precise at all about this.
then i took my threaded needle and did 2 or 3 tiny stitched through the point, just enough to pleat it a bit.
2 is even cuter than one!
i liked how they looked all fluffy and flowery, but i wanted something a little flatter for this shirt.
i machine stitched random lines and squiggles until i got all the edges down that i wanted to be tacked.
i have a fun grey shirt up next…
ps – i have a confession: i’m sucking in my gut in these pics. honesty is the best policy.
