Stain Cover Up

Some moms can get stains out of anything.
I am not that mom.
So what do I do to hide stubborn stains on a perfectly good shirt?

Cover it with cute fabric flowers of course.

All you need to do is find a shirt with some stains on it.

Dig through your fabric stash and find a fabric with a cute pattern on it. Cut the pattern out of the fabric, iron it on to your shirt with my favorite "Steam a Seam" and then top stitch to secure.

Bye bye stain! Hello brand new shirt!

Very cute! But have you tried soaking it overnight in OxyClean (the powder that comes in tub)? I swear I can get anything out with it

That's ingenious! But will it look too little-girlsy if I do it on my own shirts? I get worse stains than the kids!

I love your design,,,very smart! I second the OxyClean if you get a stain that won't come out. My mom's baby dresses (50+ yrs old)had stains on them. I got some water VERY VERY HOT, added OxyClean and soaked them over night, the washed them. The stains came out and they are beautiful again :-)
