This isn't exactly rocket science,
but it is a great way to use up fabric scraps
and upcycle a t-shirt.
I got this shirt at Target
for less than a dollar after 4th of July.
My husband loves cats.
There is a strict "no cat" policy in this household that
applies to all toys and wardrobe items.
(Sorry cat lovers.)
Even worse, he told the girls that he is "allergic" to them
since we are teaching them that we do not hate anything.
So this forsaken shirt needed a little makeover.
I wanted it to match a pair of pants, but all I had was a
scrap of fabric with no full versions of the flowers.
I considered ordering more online,
but I am trying my best to use what I have first.
Plus, I have no patience.
So I decided to make the best of it and create a
collage of many different flowers and leaves.
First I took the scrap and fused it to Heat n Bond.
Then I cut random parts of the print out.
Ran an iron over all of the layers.
I used three different thread colors and combined zig zag and straight stitching.
If you have a machine with a variety of decorative stitches,
this would be the perfect project to try them out on.
The more I stitched the more I liked how it looked.
This project is also perfect for a beginner,
since absolutely no precision is required.
Embrace the messy.
