Hello crafty peeps! I am excited to be here today! For those that don't know me, I'm Ms. Apple (as the delivery guy calls me -ha ha ha) from Brassy Apple or you can call me Megan. I design sewing patterns for the modern seamstress that are simple to construct but contain that "wow! look at that" factor. At least I hope they do! Outside of designing patterns I am a passionate DIY-er. I love to create AND re-create items for my home, to wear or simple fun gifts! You can find my daily projects, photography, crafty ideas and musing on the Brassy Apple Blog!
Today, I am sharing a fun refashion project - Girls Rosette Shrug Tutorial
Let's get going!
T-shirt (long or short sleeved)
Fabric Marker (optional)
Needle & thread
Step 1: Lay the tshirt flat. Cut up the center of the front only cutting through the top layer.
Step 2: Measure 3" in from the center line you just cut, 2" down from the bottom of the arm sleeve and 1" in from the center line at the bottom hem. Connect from the markings to create lines as shown below.
Step 4: Cut through both layers along the vertical diagonal line and across. Repeat on the other side. The tshirt should then look like this:
Step 5: Turn the tshirt over and cut a straight line across the back layer matching it up with the sides that are cut.
Step 6: Turn the tshirt back over to the front. Draw a diagonal line from the edge of the neckline to the center or middle about where the back hemline has been cut. See picture below.
Step 7: Embellish!!! Using the extra tshirt fabric that was cut away, embellish the shrug by creating rosettes, layered flowers, etc. Handstitch onto the shrug in any pattern/design/quantity you like!
Slip it on your little cutie, tie it on the front and wear it out! (this design can easily be made in any size! Just increase the length of the measurement under the arm from step 2 as needed)
and if there are any scraps left over, why not create a matching hair accessory?
Thanks so much Megan!!
