I am obsessed with flowers. Any piece of clothing with textured flower on it just pulls me in. This is a shirt I made from a 5$ tee from Target and a black flower I made and stitched to it. :)

  • How to sew a baby top. Carrie Bradshaw Inspired Flower Shirt - Step 1
    Step 1

    First you need a base shirt. After that, you need a base circle that you want to stitch your flower shape onto. I simply cut a circle of stiff fabric and then cut another circle of the black fabric that I wanted to be visible.
    ______
    After you have a base shape, you need a long tube to place around the original shape. You just cut a long strip of fabric, (mine was about 3 feet long) and then fold it in half and sew it together hot-dog-style. Then you turn it so that the stitches are inside.
    ______

    After you have the tube and the base shape, you just start from the center and sew in a spiral motion outwards. I hand stitched my flower because I wanted to add depth to the flower. I just gathered my tube up as I spiraled out.

    Then you just pin the flower you have to the shirt and stitch it into place! I sewed beads into the center to make it more flower-like. :)

This is really cute. I saw it this evening and am already halfway through making one to sew on to a bag I'm making. Great make. x
