I love the look of tone-on-tone ruffle shirts, but frankly it's really hard to find extra jersey to add to shirts in the same color! So I thought of making these "picture" tees with jersey scraps that I had lying around from other shirts I've cut up in the past.
This leaf shirt was made from a black onesie, an old stained tank top, scraps from this scarf, and some red jersey from a thrift store.
Just cut a few strips of each color, sew a line down them with a long stitch, and pull the bottom thread to ruffle....
...pin them in the pattern you want, and sew them on!
Here are some other ones I did:
(sorry the shirts are wrinkled! I didn't have time to iron them)
I thought at first I would do a heart on this pink one....then I thought maybe a "P"....
But I ended up doing a flower!
If you wanted to make one for a boy's shirt, you could just skip the ruffling and sew on the strips in the shape of boyish things! Puppies, trucks, monsters, sailboats, skateboards...there are so many possibilities! I could make a million! (Christmas presents!) :o)
Take care you guys!
