Add a little funk to your kiddos wardrobe
-A plain t shirt or onesie
-scrap fabric (I used a piece of an old t shirt)
-Sewing needle and sewing machine Step 1:
Cut a diamond shape out of a piece of scrap card stock to use as your pattern.
Mine was around 3 inches long and 1 3/4 inches wide. Step 2:
Trace 4 diamonds onto your piece of scrap fabric
*I used an old t shirt scrap to make my diamonds so they wouldn't fray when washed.
Pin the diamonds, side by side, along the front of your shirt.
Sew in place.
*If I did this over again I would use Steam a Seam to attach the diamonds to the shirt first and then sew over them to secure. The extra step would prevent them from curling and moving and make them much easier to sew.Step 5:
Using your diamond pattern, trace 3 diamonds (in between the fabric diamonds) side by side with a water soluble pen. Step 6:
Pick out a fun color embroidery floss
spend 20 minutes trying to thread it through your sewing needle
(or is that just me?) and stitch over the pattern you just drew. Remove the pen pattern with some water and
Tada!Your finished! Try it on your little boy (or girl) and
"Oooo" and "Ahhh" about how cute they are! Then pat yourself on the back
because you just made a super cool shirt all by yourself!
