Embellished T

I love white t-shirts! What can I say? I'm a walking accident. And I need shirts that when I have my little oops moments bleach can come to my rescue. lol
I wear short sleeved t-shirts all year round. Now that it's starting to get a bit cooler I can simply layer them with a cardigan. No worries about being too hot.
I made these flowers with 2 1/4 inch wide white satin ribbon. I randomly cut circles that could be layered. Next I used my heat gun to melt the edges to prevent fraying. By using my heat gun it gives the ribbon a slight curl. Plus it's safe, I've seen it done with candles or lighters. Nope not me, again walking accident here. Not a good idea to play with fire! Next I threaded some pearl beads for the center of the flowers, layered some circles and sewed into place. Easy enough. Now my $8 t-shirt looks like a $40 shirt from one of my favorite stores.

Here's a close up of my handmade flowers. I love them so much I will just have to make some more in gorgeous jewel tones for fall.
I'm sharing this with The Stuff Of Success and Tatertots and Jello.
