My daughter had a plain white shirt that was older and mainly used to wear under sweaters so I thought it would be fun to spruce it up.
I started playing around in the Silhouette Studio and found a ballerina silhouette image that I loved. I had pink heat transfer from Silhouette in the closet waiting to be used for something.
The image came out perfectly even with those little dainty ballerina hands. I peeled away the extra pink leaving only my image and then ironed it in place on the white shirt.
Next I cut out a rough shape of the skirt from cardstock to use as a pattern.
I used the pattern to cut out several layers of pink tulle that I had in my scrap basket.
I cut a piece of pink ribbon just the size to fit the top of the tulle layers. I put craft glue on the ribbon and placed my tulle pieces on one by one.
After I layered the tulle pieces, I folded the ribbon over and held it down for a minute. Now I had a little tutu for the ballerina. I trimmed up the sides and roughly scalloped the edges of the tutu to give it more life and make it fit better.
To attach the tutu on the shirt, I used three small buttons and pink thread.
Now the ballerina has a "real" tutu.
I wanted the tutu silhouette to still show on the sides a little. I was so excited about the results!
A plain white tee transformed into a fun pink ballerina shirt...
Can't wait to surprise my daughter with her new ballerina shirt when she gets home from school. I just know she will love it!
I'll be partying at these blogs this week. Won't you join me?
