Embellished Shirt DIY Project

It is no surprise that I enjoy doing little craft projects that give a unique touch to something. When I saw the Farm Chicks post on embellished tanks... I was delighted! What a clever idea... and oh so easy to do! I decided I wanted to find something "fiesta-ish". I just have been in the mood for a fiesta! I am pretty sure it stems from the fiesta-themed baby shower we are planning for one of our friends. ;)

I found this material at JoAnns... conveniently on sale (and calling my name!). Yippppeee. It looks pretty fiesta-ish, don't ya think? If nothing else, it looks summery.

Next, I found a bright pink tank. I just adored these ruffles... simple, but feminine...not to mention it reminded me of a senorita. ;)

I chose the flower I wanted on the shirt and cut out the fabric along with the fusible iron-on web. Next, I ironed it on.

And now I have my bright pink senorita/fiesta shirt!

I was a little nervous to wash and dry it... but I did, and the iron-on flower stayed on like a champ! Such a fun way to dress up some of those plain tanks and tees that we all have in our closets. At least you can be confident that you will be the only one wearing your unique shirt. ;)
