3,2,1, Craft- Tshirt makeover

Don't you just love rosettes? I love making headbands or adding them to shower curtains so when I saw this, I knew I could do something similar or close to it. 
So starting my search and thinking how I was going to making rosettes look that good, I stumbled upon some of this at JoAnn's with their ribbon.

Rosettes in a nice lacy chain and a decent price (especially if you have a 50% coupon)! I think I bought about a half yard of it.

Ok so here is my sewing project I worked on today- super fast and super cute!
What I started with:

and then this is what I did:
Lay out your rosettes and pin them onto your tshirt.

Then time to sew! I sewed them on by hand, sewing first on the inside edge of the rosettes and next sewing on the outside edge. You could maybe use a sewing machine if you have a nice one that would work well, but I didn't trust mine to do the job. 
and TA DA! 

Maybe if you're lucky I will post a pic of me wearing it when it is not dark out and I don't look such a mess. P.S. Stay tuned to see what I do with the leftover couple inches.

Edit: (note the sun was in my eyes). p.s. I started with v-neck and it kinda turned into more of a scoop neck after I added on the rosettes.

Vote for me here! 
I would appreciate it very much! 

Also when 12 more people like my facebook page I will host another giveaway, so lets get going!
