Hello wednesday - T shirt blooms

Don't you just LOVE wednesday's? Say hello to wednesday  "hello wednesday" It's all downhill from now on to the weekend - yippee!!!

I am really sorry but I have caught the "Button Bug" - it is highly contagious, and this weeks project is another idea to use buttons.  It is sooooooo simple - honest.

I made this for Mollie Monday night - think I needed a bigger T-shirt but ho ha.  All you need are buttons, I used the large ones from our Tutti Frutti Button Box - HERE

I picked four buttons 2 slightly larger then the other two. I placed one of each size button onto some scrap paper and drew round them.  Then I drew loops to form a flower, all different sizes so they looked a bit wacky.  Next I cut the paper flowers out and cut a hole in the centre. You can see the template below.

I then pinned the template onto the T-shirt.

I placed the button on top of the t-Shirt and sewed it in place using white 6 stranded thread.

I then started to sew around the template with running stitches.  You are just using the paper template as a guide, so do not worry if you go offline.  Continue sewing all the way round the flower.

Unpin and remove the paper template........Button blooms are created....simples!!

I love these blooms, I want to sew some more........

Sydney and I are off out on a little play this morning - thought we would head on over to our local Hobbycraft.  There are a few bits and pieces I need....yes I do mean need, NOT want!!!  There is a garden centre next door with a coffee shop (with a play area), so I think most of the morning will be taken up!

Do try these button blooms, they are so easy and look fantastic.  Oh I forgot to tell you yesterday, I slipped in a NEW Button Box flavour - Allsorts.  A little mixture of ALLSORTS!  Have a look here.

Must go, I have a little girl waiting to be picked up.
