Before the birth of my baby girl, Olivia, I used to sew all sorts of things for myself. I have tons of dresses, shirts, and collars that I made for myself back in my baby-less days (I am in the process of taking photos of some of these things for you all to see). Now everytime I make something it is to adorn my miniature best friend. And I love it. BUT sometimes I have the urge to make something for myself again. This happened a few weeks ago when I made this shirt.
Well, I didn't make the shirt, I just adorned it because I love the fit of the shirt, but the color looks horrible against my face. And below was my process (nothing you haven't seen me do on a onesie, but I will recap it nonetheless)
"FELT AND FABULOUS SHIRT ADORNMENT TUTORIAL"
This is a ONE LONG NAP project (approx. 1 1/2 - 2 hours)
1. cut out a bunch of thin leaf-like shapes and a bunch of circles.
2. Sew the leaf shapes to the circles (don't forget to backstich at the ends). This process will go faster if you continuously feed them through the machine rather than snipping the threads at the end of each circle. when they are all sewn, THEN you can snip the threads connecting them.
3. Use this stuff to iron on a piece of fabric to your shirt.
4. THEN, figure out what arrangement you want for the little circles and pin them down... It took me awhile to make a final decision with this one!
Finally, sew them all down!! This part takes awhile, but in then end you will be so happy with your shirt, that it will have been worth the 20 minutes or so:)
