I was reading my friend Jan's blog and she had made a super cute shirt for her granddaughter. I thought it was so sweet and darling that some of the little peeps of the female gender in my life needed one!
Forward to today when Bagette Ann and I were at WalMart picking up items for our Angel Tree at church when I spotted some green lace. I looked for the kind that Jan used to no avail, but I had a different idea.
Here it is! I love how it turned out…
Trim any extra. I used about 1 yard of lace for each shirt.
Here is the pattern of stitching that I used. I started at the bottom and followed the red arrows and came back down the tree following the blue arrows. It worked great. Make sure you sew the raw edges of the lace at the bottom and the top.
I then used invisible thread (which is kind of a nightmare to use, just use green or machine stitch) to apply the sequins.
PS, Jan got the idea for her shirt HERE. I want to make sure that Vixen Made gets credit for my inspiration!
