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..
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
