Stains are a natural fact of Parenthood, I'm pretty sure that every article of clothing that's in my girls' drawer at one time or another was stained. I've gotten good at taking them out, Damn good infact. The issue is, Every once in a while one slips by and goes through the washer and dryer without me noticing it. Set in Stains Suck!
Over the past few days Dan and I have been doing a seasonal closet clean out for the girls, Packing away the too small, tossing away the ruined. I found two white shirts with stains and remembered this tutorial I had read a long time ago.
The worse of the two shirts I used as my ruffles, I cut the back of the shirt into 1"(approx) thick strips. I ran them through my Machine on the widest stitch (bast) setting I have, You Can do this entire project by hand!
Then I grabbed one of the threads and started bunching
Here they are all layed out ready to sew onto the shirt
I arranged them how I liked and sewed them on with my machine, again, this Can be done by hand!
For the flower on the collar I cut a 1/2" piece of jersey and pulled it, which caused the ends to curl, than used the same technique to ruffle a strip and rolled it up into the flower shape and stitched it onto the shirt!
