A super weekend, but I must confess I was pleased to get some time last night for blog catching-up and a sewing machine reunion :) I needed a quick fix and have been meaning to try the following for some time, so here goes with a tutorial for a 30 minute project.
T-shirts for little people.
(There's nothing really new in this idea, but I thought it might be useful to show the process I went through)
I picked up three T-shirts for a fiver the other day at Asda and have been meaning to jazz them up a little..
Felix is rocking gingham this summer, so I thought a T-shirt in that theme might go down well. I sketched a simple flower design and cut it out.
I then ironed the fabric to the fleece and the wonderweb to the back.
and pinned my template to the layered fabric before cutting around it with dressmaking scissors.
I then ironed both pieces to my T-shirt
I then stitched round both designs with blue thread. I used my ordinary sewing foot for the large design, but switched to my free-motion foot for the smaller design.
PS the first and last photos were taken with the FREE Instagram application on my i-phone. How cool is that!
