Crocheted Flower Shirt

Okay, this shirt is very easy 
and you're probably wondering why I'm even posting about something so simple,
but I didn't think about doing this until a little while ago
so maybe there are a few of you who didn't think about it either :)
I can always hope....


One of the great things about this project
is that you don't have to do any sewing to make your shirt look different.


This is what you will need:

crocheted flowers (bought mine at a craft store) or any kind of fabric flower
fabric glue
shirt


Arrange the flowers how you want them on the shirt and then glue them on.
Easy peasy!


I kept mine simple by putting the flowers in the center of the shirt
since I tend to wear cardigans a lot.


And make sure you let the flowers dry for 24 hours before wearing your new shirt.


I have to give credit for the photos of me to my little man 
who was my photographer for the day :)


The shirt is simple, but it's a fun way to make your old clothes like new.
"Enjoy the simple pleasures in life."

Have a splendid weekend, sweet friends!

I think that's a really cute update to bring a shirt you have to a new fashion life. Who doesn't like a change sometimes? Especially one that cute and easy. Local news/chat hour today had easy but changing for the season tips.
God Bless,

Your photographer is doing so well - the photos are very professional.
Love the shirt. I am in the process

I love the whole outfit! I have a skirt almost exactly like yours and have had a hard time finding a top I like with it-even though the skirt is white. I love your combo!
