Love the lush, gorgeous rose-embellished clothes you've seen at stores like Anthropologie? They can be so pricey, so I thought I'd try my hand at making something similarly pretty for my little girl, on a smaller scale that would fit her style. I chose to embellish a little scoop-necked t-shirt, but this would look lovely on a dress, tank top, or headband, too. Choose a mix of ribbons and lace in her favorite colors and twist up some roses. A few stitches and felt leaves later, and she’ll have a new favorite thing to wear!
What you'll need: Ribbons and laces in her favorite colors for flowers (I used 5 in pinks and whites); 18 inch long strips of materials (1.5 inches across); for larger flowers; 13 inch long strips or narrower materials (3/4-1 inch across) for smaller flowers; sharp scissors; green felt piece for leaves; needle and thread; straight pins.
(Optional: You can use fabric glue or hot glue instead of sewing, but if you want to be able to wash the finished piece, be sure to use glue that works for that.)
