Okay- this still counts as sewing, atleast for me

Linking up here!

So here is my second "sewing project". I started off wanting to make something like this: 
But my attempt as shown below looked more like I should fly away while wearing it, so I decided to scrap that idea and start over. Next time if I try again I will need flat lace to add on to the shirt and more of it.

So this is what I tried instead:

 Making a lace flower. Thread your piece of lace onto your needle making sure to leave  a piece of thread at the end. Once all the lace is on, pull your two pieces of thread nice and tight and tie in a knot. Use your needle again (see- we are sewing), to sew together the pieces at each edge, to make it more flower like. I also sewed my whole flower nice and tight again.

Once you have your lace flower sewn nicely together- add a cute button to give it a more polished look and TA DA: you have a cute shirt! 

 Don't you love my new hat my husband bought me last weekend on our little vaca? ( I do).
Note: you could add more than one esp. if you make it smaller than the one I made. But for the size I made, I felt less was more.


  1. It totally counts as sewing! And yes, LOVE the hat. It's fantastic!

  2. Your shirt is adorable! And that hat is so cute on you . . . I tried one on at Forever 21 the other day, and discovered that I sadly cannot pull off a hat like that. But I love it on you :-)
