HEY!! I have another tutorial for you! YAY!!!! And I will be adding in a couple of hair clips and another headband!
This was SOOOOOO easy to make! I have been seeing shirts like this allll over Pinterest and thought that I would like to try it myself! But then I had some red tulle and I just couldn’t resist adding it to the bottom! LOL
Here is what I used-
A red shirt
Different types of green ribbon and white lace
3 yards of red tulle
3 yards of white tulle 6″ wide
1 yellow button
I promise that rickrack is a nicer color green… Not sure WHAT happened when I took these pictures! I realllllly need a camera other than my iPhone! LOL
Line up your ribbons and laces in any order that suits you and cut both sides at an angle.
Line up the ribbons and laces in order and pin! Then sew them on! Easy peasy!
Next, sew your button to the top!
Wrestle your tulle away from your cat…… SIGH….
I swear, I could put a wash cloth and the table and they would sleep on it!!!
Now, fold over your tulle in half and then half again. Now it should be 3 yards long but wide enough for a tutu!
Next, run a gathering stitch alllllllll along the top of it!
Then you are going to pin it to the bottom of your shirt. With right sides together, slip the tutu over the shirt so that the top of the tutu will pin to the bottom of the shirt.
Next, sew it to your shirt! I used a zigzag stitch.
Now, pin the white tulle to the sides of the shirt, just above the tutu. Sew just the sides!
This makes a lovely bow in the back!
I wish I knew why the colors were off in the pics.
ANYWAY…. on to the hair clips and headband. This is sooooo easy, though!
I took red fingernail polish and painted over the clips.
Then I used the polish to put decorations on the tree.
All the pieces that I used came from Walmart and were super cheap!!!
Then I hot glued the pieces onto the clips! Viola!
I swear, I had NO CLUE that the colors looked so bad until I started playing with PicMonkey….. Then I went back and added another coat of red. I think the flash brings out the flaws! LOL
MUCH better with a 3rd coat!!!! LOL
With this one, I just took a clear headband and hot glued the snowflakes on.
I told you it was easy! LOL
Now I want to show you some other projects that have been going on around here.
The dress is one I made for my Cousin CJ. My aunt brought the fabric and pattern that she wanted. Then I added the headband. I just wrapped it in black ribbon like I did Cailey’s candy headband and then hot glued the black and white braid.
Here is the pattern that I used. I added the sparkly braid to the top and the black ribbon and bow to the bottom to give it a little extra umph! LOL
And here is the necklace that Deanna made for Cailey to match her candy headband.
I hope you like the tutorials! As always, let me know if you have any questions!!!! And let me know if you decide to make one of these!!!
And for some reason the formatting on here is off kilter…. AGAIN!!! I wish I knew WHY it did that. Drives me nuts! I like nice spaces not everything crammed together. BLARGH!!!
