At the beginning of the summer it didn't seem like my youngest had enough going to town worthy shirts, but we had an overabundance of screen printed onesies. So I decorated some of them. See!
I got the idea for this one here. Actually I've been reading Ruffles and Stuff. Disney does a lot of clothing re-purposing and was largely my inspiration for all of these.
See the screen printing. I wasn't fond of it.
For this one I cut a long thin strip of white t-shirt material, ruffled it by stitching down the middle on my machine's longest stitch length and highest tension. Then I rolled the ruffle around itself as I hand stitched it to the shirt from the inside.
The leaf is a piece of green ribbed t-shirt that I machine sewed to the shirt down the middle.
For the green shirt I cut 2 long 1 1/2" strips of t-shirt material and pleated haphazardly one at a time on the shirt and zig zagged to attach.
The green one was my favorite until I soaked it in oxy clean and it faded in spots. :( Not go to town worthy anymore, but maybe I'll try it again sometime. I liked it and it was a more gender neutral decoration.
