I finally got around to embellishing some of those t-shirts I bought at Target last month. I am all about doing appliqués with my embroidery machine now! They are so fun albeit a little time-consuming. If you don’t have an embroidery machine, you can do them with some heat-n-bond and hand or machine stitch around the edges.
Anyway….here’s how mine turned out:
Did you notice the hair flowers I made to match? They are so cute! I’ll show you those in another post next week, but here’s a peek:
I put the appliqué at the bottom to one side so it kind of looks like he’s walking off the shirt. And mainly because the pocket was in the way of the center of the shirt!
Ok, here’s one more that I embellished, but I’m not too sure about it yet. Do you like the ruffle ribbon or should I just keep doing the appliqués?
I think the ribbon is cute, but it was a little difficult to work with since it is actually elasticized.
All of these won’t be going in to my Etsy shop, instead I’ll be taking them to Lil’ Miss Priss Boutique here in Shreveport. If you are local, be sure and stop by Lil’ Miss Priss on Saturday for her 3rd anniversary Re-Grand Opening Celebration!! You can also find my tu-tu onesies there.
I’ll be linking to some fun parties today, be sure and check out what everyone else has been up to!
