Pinterest Challenge- Ribbon-Petal Flower T-shirt tutorial

 

Ribbon Petal T-Shirt Tutorial

 

I saw this pin on Pinterest last fall, and thought I’d adjust it for a spring shirt.  Here’s what I came up with.  Enjoy our flower t-shirt tutorial!

Tutorial:

1.  Cut the ribbons all the same length.  Mine were about 6 1/2 inches long.  (Next time I think I’ll make them a little shorter.)

2.  Cut out the circles.  I used my glue container as a pattern.

3.  Tacky glue the ends of the ribbons together.

4.  Tacky glue the ribbons to the underneath of the circles.

5.  Hand baste the circles onto the shirts.

6.  Zig-Zag stitch the circles onto the shirts and cut out basting threads.

    I wish I had thought of that before, Jill! I got the ribbon at the dollar section at Target, and they don’t have anymore. The shirts were cheap there, too. I also should have bought a little onesie for our new little girl!

  3. love this idea! Perfect to make for my three girls for spring. :) Thanks for sharing your craftiness.

  4. How well did these hold up when washed?

      The ribbons didn’t stay flat. If I made them again, I’d use shorter ribbons for the petals. But I fixed it by tacking down the end of each ribbon (a small stitch).
