Well I broke down and made Miss A a cute little shirt for the 4th! My friend asked if I could help her make some for her girls and I figured as long as I was pulling everything out I better make my little one a shirt! I bought a cheap little tank top at Wal-Mart ($2.50). I bought it big because secretly I am hoping she can wear it next year but really who am I kidding I will make her another one! It worked out good it shrunk quiet a bit! I LOVE LOVE LOVE The 4th and the colors. But for some reason Turquoise has been speaking to me A LOT! Rather then use the traditional blue I had an old scrap of turquoise. I went back and forth on doing flowers, flag or stars but I happened to lay a scrap on the shirt and i knew…I pinned my ruffles into place, and sewed them on. Literally it took 5 minutes to make this shirt! I added a little heart on the bottom Just to break up the white! I also left my first blue strip long and my bottom red so that I could tie it in the back I also added a fun hair do. Here is the front view of the shirt What do you think?
Do you want to see the other 2 I made to help out another friend. Her daughters were singing at the local Barbeque so they defiantly needed some American Pride! I used an old t-shirt cut up, a old tank top and scraps! Gotta love refurbishing!
The girls loved them!
