Decorate a shirt with these simple flowers.
Make a boring t-shirt into something unique! I am always inspired by the shirts and dresses from Anthropologie and I never want to pay 98$ for a shirt so I made my own! :)

You Will Need

  • Step 1

    Start with your shirt and then cut long strips of fabric for the flowers. I made the strips about 1/2'' wide. I burned the edges of the strips so they would not fray but you can let the fabric fray and I think the flowers will still look great!

    Step 2

    To make the leaves I cut leaf shapes out of another color and burned the edges as well.

  • Step 3

    Then I started sewing the strips into circles. You start in the middle and do a spiral until you run out of fabric or the flower is big enough. After I had all my flowers I sewed leaves where I thought they should go. So easy! :)

I love burning edges of different materials, but I never thought of doing it on fabric, very cool technique I might use it more often. Thank you very much!
