Cool shirt I made

 I was at the store recently and came across some adorable t-shirts embellished with handmade flowers.  There were several different styles and I had a few in my basket, then I decided I could make them myself for much cheaper.  I got these pink shirts off the clearance rack at Meijers for $3 each.  What a steal!! The trim was already on the neckline, but would be so easy to add.   I bought two identical shirts; one to wear and one to cut up.  I used 3 different size flower templates to cut flowers out of my extra t-shirt.  I also added layers of tulle which really adds some nice detail that doesn't show up on the photo.  The leaves are made out of green organdy 6" wide fabric.  The tiny white rosettes are from Maya Roads.  The baubles are a combo of really old Heidi Swapp gems and new Bazzill bling buttons.  Everything was hand sewn on and the shirt took me less than an hour to make.  I just loved the way it turned out!
