Her First Project
I do lots of ruffle shirts on my blog, I had to do on for the M&J challenge too!
{You will need}
{How to}
  • Step 1:  Cut the lace into four strips (18″ each) and fray check the ends.
  • Step 2:  Using the largest stitch setting on your sewing machine, sew the top of the lace (1/4″ from the edge). Pull one thread to gather lace to make ruffles. Pin the ruffled lace onto the shirt diagnally.
  • Step 3:  Repeat the process with the rest of the three strips.
  • Step 4:  Cut the silk ribbon in half horizontally to make 1″ wide ribbons. Cut them in half to make 4 strips of 1″ wide X 18″ long ribbons. You will need three of them.
  • Step 5:  Zigzag the edges of the three ribbons from step 4. To make ruffles, sew in the middle with the largest stitch, pull one thread to gather the ribbon.
  • Step 6:  Pin the ruffled ribbon strips between the laces diagonally twisting occasionally. Sew them onto the t-shirt.
{How to make the corsage}
  • Step 1:  Fold the ribbon 3 times, cut the top wavy(use the picture as a guide)
  • Step 2:  Using the largest stitch setting, sew one side of the ribbon 1/4″ from the edge. Pull one thread to gather the ribbon to make ruffles.
  • Step 3:  Start rolling the ribbon and sew the back to make a flower. Sew a pearl in the middle. Cut a piece of felt large enough to cover the back of two flowers, sew it onto the flowers and sew a pin. Add the corsage onto the t-shirt; it is ready to wear! and… that is what I did!
