some more tees

I got these tee shirts at Old Navy the other day for $4.50 each…what a steal! I decided they needed a little sprucing though. Of course…none of my tee shirts are safe these days!

For this green one, I used this tutorial for the flowers…love them!
for this purple one I TRIED to use this tutorial…but couldn’t figure out how to make the flowers…so it ended up like this. I don’t know if I like it or not…haven’t tried it on yet though. Maybe it will look better on.
And for the blue one I tried some appliqued “petals”.

I kinda wish I’d done just one layer, but it came out ok, I think. Kind of lacy looking. (ish) Anyways, what are you favorite tee shirt makeover techniques?


  1. Those are cute! I love appliqueing shirts. Don’t do it nearly enough though…

  2. The flowers are my favorite! I saw a very cute tee shirt that one of our YW was wearing on Sunday and thought that you could totally do that! It was purple and the cap sleeves were made using ruffles out of the same material as the tee, very simple yet not over done:)

  3. I love the t-shirts! I am hoping to try some soon now that things have settled down a bit around here!


  4. i like the blue one!!!!! turned out so sooooooo cuuuuuuuuute!
