So you caught this post earlier in the week, you saw that I gutted a pair of maternity pants to make leggings. (Go check out the tutorial here!)
First, I promised a better picture. (See above...thank you to my adorable model....)
Second, I am determined to use more of my stash. In my stash was this long sleeve shirt that I got on clearance at Wal*Mart. (Normal people just have fabric...I occasionally pick up plain shirts like this on the off chance someone would need a personalized shirt last minute. Not that I ever do stuff last minute...(check out the gift costume.)
I remember once seeing a tutorial for a fabric flower made from folded circles, but I can't remember where (If you know, drop a line in the comments and I will edit the post to give credit....thanks!) so like so much in my sewing....I winged it.
***ETA: I finally remembered where I saw the original tutorial...check it out here: http://www.makeit-loveit.com/2011/02/knit-receiving-blanketknit-baby-hats_08.html and you will spend hours looking at all her wonderful tutorials and posts!
I used a can of canned air as a template for my circles. Why? Because it was handy. :) For the smaller circles I used an ice cream sundae dish from the play kitchen. You can choose whatever you like, but the circles were about 3" and 2.5" ish in diameter.
I started with the large cicles. Place one down as a base.
Grab 4 smaller circles from your pile. We are going to fold these in quarters also and attach the same way.
For best results, stagger this row.
Now you have a shirt to "match" your leggings!
Now I am working on a skirt to finish the look. I love having girls!
