T-Shirt Tuesday March 15, 2011

Today's T-Shirt is such a functional piece.  I wear it casually with a jeans jacket or dress it up with a black skirt and the ubiquitous strappy sandal.

If you are a hand embroiderer, I know you recognize this flower as a spider web rose. 
Here is a video featuring Trudy of Hot Patterns with a demo of how to make them.  The rose tutorial starts in the the 3 of 3 video. I put both in because I think they are great!


Now that I look at her video again, I see more Ts that I want to make!

The one thing I do differently than Trudy is I make my roses on a separate piece of fabric, and then apply them to the T.  I think they have more body with the extra fabric and seem to hold up better.

Happy Sewing,
Michele P

  1. Hi Michele,
    I am visiting your blog for the first time and I am so impressed with all the great ideas for T shirts embellishments that you have posted. I can definitely see this rose embellished T shirt worn as part of many different outfits. It was great meeting you and Tina (Marie) on Sunday. Hope to see you later this year, hopefully on the bus trip to NY.
