Hi there! It's been a while since I've done one of these, huh? Sorry for my extended absence, but Christmas chaos got the best of me! If you follow my facebook page, you might have seen that I had a bit of an unexpected surprise when my tutorial at U-Create won 1st place for the 2011 awards. Such an honor! Not only that, but I won a Silhouette Cameo machine!! I'm already imagining all of the beautiful things I can make with it. Have you seen anything exceptionally cool done with the Silhouette done around bloggyland? If so send me some links! I'm excited to try out some fun projects.
And with that, here's my latest project. Simple, and no sewing machine required. Sounds good to me. Especially since my sewing machine has apparently gone on strike and refuses to stitch with proper tension. My seams are falling apart right after I sew them. So frustrating!
Plain Jane T-shirt (Mine's the boyfriend tee from Target)
Pull your needle through from the inside out, so that the knot is on the inside of the tee
Use the machine stitched hem as a guide to keep your stitching straight.
Stitch up the sides...
...around the collar...
...and add as many details as you like. I was afraid of over-doing it, but found that every new addition added a pretty, new interest.
Or totally diregard my tutorial and do it your way! One little snip fixes any mistakes you might make.
It's all in the details.
