I have always wanted to learn how to sew. My husband even bought me a sewing machine for Christmas, but I haven't even had the time to get it out of the box. So when I wanted to make my two youngest girls an Easter shirt, I knew it had to be a no sew project. I thought that they made fabric glue, so a trip to Wal-Mart and I found some "Fabric Fusion" and got to work.
You guys know how I love to repurpose and recycle. And so I got the remains of the lime green sweater that I made the St. Patrick's Day 3D Art and the Easter Rosette Frame with and decided to make an Easter egg shirt.
First, I traced the egg shape onto the sweater and cut out the egg.
Next, I got the remains of some ribbon scraps that I used for our 4 year old's Princess Birthday Party and arranged them for the stripes on the egg. I used the thin yellow one for the center and then put the same kind of ribbon at the top and bottom of the yellow one until I reached the top and bottom of the egg.
Next, I cut them at an angle to the shape of the egg on each side and used the fabric glue to glue each piece of ribbon on the egg.
Last, I used the fabric glue to attach the egg to the shirt centered on the chest of the shirt.
I used shirts that the girls already had, the white one is for my two year old and the pink one is for my 4 year old. I will show you some pics of the girls with them on when I can get them to cooperate long enough to do so. I don't know how well the fabric glue holds up. They did dry kinda stiff. I will let you know later how they hold up, but they sure are cute!!
