T-shirt Up-cycle: Flower Embroidery

flower embroidered t-shirt

This is the first time I have tried to embroider since I was about 10 years old.  Embroidering pillow cases with my grandma as a kid wasn't too exciting, but now I'm starting to like it.  It's way more fun when you can up-cycle a t-shirt with some pretty flowers!

I cut out the embroidery patch and sewed it on my once-long-sleeved-tee..... it had to be turned into a short sleeve thanks to a chain link fence that caught the sleeve and ripped it.  Oh well..... sometimes those accidents turn out to be a good thing.  Now I have something new for summer!

  1. This is so cute! I used to embroider and cross stitch when I was little but haven't done it in many years. I still can't seem to part with my collection of embroidery floss :)

  2. This is so lovely and looks really good considering you have not done embroidery for quite a while. x

  3. I never finished my pillowcase, but I remember spending hours on it. :) Your shirt turned out cute and sort of vintage looking.
