I needed a few extra tee shirts, so I decided to try to refashion a basic tee that I found on sale at Wal-mart. I have to confess that because I teach music lessons every day, my wardrobe leans more toward the semi-dressy, so when I want something comfy and casual I'm don't have a lot of options.
I really liked the multicolored shirt, because it will match with any solid tee and it's got lovely color layerings, along with a subtle silver shade running through it.
I'm not going to post another tutorial because there are so many excellent ones already out there. Basically I cut out two layers of odd circles or hearts, pinched the center and sewed through the two layers with needle and thread, and then sewed the "flower" onto the shirt.
I'm very happy with the way the flower part came out, but I'm not overly thrilled with the top as a whole, mostly because I don't care for the fit of the tee. It's a box-shaped top, instead of a more fitted hourglass top that I prefer, but since the whole thing cost me under $10 and the point of this tee is to have something casual anyway, I figure it fits its purpose.
