Dress up a T-shirt

There are so many ways to dress up a plain T-Shirt!

This was a plain shirt I picked up for $1.50.

I used a white T-Shirt that we got for free at some event for the fabric to make the flowers.  Jersey is an easy fabric to use because it will not fray.

I took a three inch strip and cut a 2" slit every inch.  Sew a basting stitch along the edge and gather.  
Sew onto the neckline of your T-Shirt.  

For the flower on the left I took a 2" strip and tied one end in a knot.  Then twist the fabric as you wind it around the knot.  Secure on the backside with thread.  

For the flower on the right, cut out a 5" circle.  Baste around the edge and gather.  Tie the basting threads in a knot to secure.  Flatten the flower so the gathers make the center of the flower.  Cut 3 one inch circles and fold them in half twice.  Sew these to cover up the raw edges in the center of the flower.  

Sew them on your shirt.
