DIY Flower Petal {shirt}


Apparently I am on this 'embellish shirt' kick lately, because I have done it again. :)


I had so much fun working with felt last time, that I decided to try something a little different.


Check it out..

Shirt
Felt
Fabric for center
Heat & Bond (I used Pellon)



1. Cut 8 of each color for two rows of felt
2. Pin the bottom row of petals to create a circle
3.Pin the top row of petals, as indicated above
4. Stitch the top row of petals, then lift up that row & stitch the bottom row of petals



Cut your fabric in a circle big enough to cover the open center of your petals.


I used Pellon Wonder-under to attach to the back of my fabric circle--the instructions should come with your Pellon or other fusing web.

Once you have fused both of those pieces together & taken off the paper part of the Wonder-under, you can iron the fabric onto the open section of the petals.
Finish by stitching the fabric circle to your shirt



I made a second one as well. :) I'm very happy how easy this was to create. And it washed up wonderfully--ironed the fabric center

I'm not very comfortable with the sewing machine, but I think I might be able to give this one a try. This turned out so cute!! My daughter would love sporting a huge flower on her shirt... she already tells everyone I make everything anyways (??) so I should work on making that true at least some of the time.

I would love it if you'd share at my link party, Off the Hook: http://daisycottagedesigns.blogspot.com/2012/05/introducing-off-hook-1.html
