It's been dumping raindrops here!
I picked up some old sheer valances with soft polka dots at the thrift store here in town. Rose-making was a perfect past time during the wind and rain storm...
Here's what I made~ A Rosed up shirt~
Shirt~ Hillard and Hanson-----Garage sale $1
Old polka dotted valences~ JC Penny's -----thrift store $1.50
So, dear girls, here's what I did, and I encourage you to give it a try~
~find one of your shirts that you think would look perfect with a little "rose-ing up".
~pick scrap fabric for your roses that matches well or is a perfect contrast.
~cut a strip appx. 2" wide for each rose and however long you want them, depending on the size of rose you are shooting for.
~twist, and then wind the fabric into a plump, round rose-pinwheel.
~hand tack the pinwheeled fabric-rose.
~To finish, hand sew onto shirt with a piece of interfacing behind the rose on the inside of the shirt.
These are so fun to make...little sis even loves to join the rose making.
