Yesterday I had the rare occurrence of shopping without my kids (can you believe it?!?). I even got my hair cut for the first time in a year and a half too!
At Ann Taylor Loft, they had the cutest striped tee. Normal price was $19.50, tag marked $12.99...but it was an additional 60% off! So, I got the tee for $5.20 (73% off!).
I've been eyeing these super cute fabric rosettes made by Natalie on Natsprat. I've been wanting to make them since she posted the tutorial! I finally dug out my fabric scraps and chose these ones.
I followed the tutorial using fabric glue (since I planned to wash the shirt in the washer) and added a few stitches along the back to make sure they stayed in place. I just don't trust that fabric glue :) Making the rosettes took a total of like 3 minutes a piece. They were so easy to make. I definitely foresee lots of fabric rosettes in my future! Thanks Natalie!
When placing the rosettes, I would definitely recommend trying the shirt on and pinning the flowers where you want them. I moved them quite a bit from where I thought I'd put them when the shirt was laying flat. Then I just stitched along the edges and VOILA! A cute rosette tee!
And Layne had a blast in my craft stuff tonight too. She cut and glued her own masterpiece together!
