Hello, it is such a huge honor to be here today. I have been a fan of Skip to my Lou for a very long time.
My name is Lindsay & I run a blog called Southern Lovely. I am a busy mom of three little ones, who constantly keep me running. Whenever I have free time, I enjoy creating. It’s my outlet, really.Today I am going to share a fun spring sewing project, that can be altered in a variety of ways.
My girls were in need of a few spring shirts, and since I’ve had lots of fun making skirts for them, I decided to embellish some t-shirts. I saw this adorable tutorial for a onesie, and thought it would be fun to put my own spin on it.
Arrange your petals on your shirt. The best way that I found, is to start in the middle & work out. You need to make sure your center petal is exactly in the middle. Pin the top row, then move to the second & then the last. You can arrange however you feel looks best, I liked having them right below each other.
Now it’s time to attach the petals to the shirt.
I started with the top row & stitched a straight line.
Then lift up the top row & move to the second row, then finish with the third.
Let me explain why the row of seven petals didn’t work. I had my daughter try it on & it looked like the petals were overtaking her. I had to laugh, even though I knew it was going to be more work for me. So my seam ripper & I had a nice little go at it for a while.
I really like how it looks with FIVE petals on each row.
Thank you so much for letting me share here today!
I love meeting new friends, so feel free to stop by my place & say hi!
