She gave the shirts the name Fluttering Butterflies. Cute name and the project is easy peasy and the butterflies only get better over time. And what little girl doesn't love butterflies, or big girls too.... me! me! me! It's so easy I am not going to give a tute but just a short paragraph on how to make them with photos.
I just bought some inexpensive long sleeve white tee shirts. I found a simple butterfly clip art, made it the size I wanted in Word, printed it and made a cardboard template from that. I bought some pretty Spring time colorful print fabric and using my template, cut out 5 butterflies for each shirt. You can do as many as you want. I did pink for Boo and blue for Al. Make sure you get a cotton fabric that will ravel nicely. I washed my fabric before cutting the butterflies out. After you have them cut out, sew a simple straight stitch about 1/4" in from the edges. Pin to your shirt and sew straight down the middle of the butterfly. This is so the wings will stay free to flutter. :) The directions said to just throw in the dryer for a short while so the fabric will ravel but I washed my twice and then dried in the dryer. The more it's washed the more it will ravel. This gives you a raggedy really cute butterfly. And that's it! Sticking these cuties in the mail tomorrow with little gardening kits. :)
Happy Pink Saturday!
