old t shirt flowers

Time for a quick bloggy-blog!
Last Thursday I found myself very bored and wanted to do a craft project that was going to take about twenty bucks in materials. I figured a way to do this project without spending ANY money! The craft called for two new shirts (so they would be the same exact color) and some sewing supplies. Well, i didn't feel like getting out of my pajamas, nor did I need to spend any money. I found an old t shirt (that I happen to have two of) and another shirt of mine that simply needed some sprucing up.

 Here is what the finished product looked like:

I took the old shirt and cut in two pieces. Front and back. I then cut square strips varying in size from about 1/2 an inch to 2 inches.....
Click on the picture to enlarge it... it holds the next steps :)

I realize that i do not have very good directions, nor do I take very good pictures. Also, I changed this DIY to personalize what I wanted... You can see the original project (which is way better than mine) at 



Because I got tired of sewing these dainty flowers on the shirt (note: i'm not a seamstress and WILL not ever try to sew as I previously mentioned I might try) I sewed some on a headband :)
I will try to do this project again another day when I have a little more patience to achieve the fullness as this MommaGoRound did!
