T-Shirt Friday! Originally, I had a different post planned, but today, Disney from Ruffles and Stuff posted that they are keeping a 2 month old in the foster system along with the 7 month old that they were already keeping (As well as a their own daughter). Disney has such a loving heart and, right now, she’s feeling overwhelmed and I think it would be great if we all popped over to her blog and gave her some encouragement! Sometimes, we all need an uplifting word!
Disney has been such a great supporter of The Good Life, so today, I’m gonna throw back and re-post a T-Shirt tutorial that she shared with us last year. Enjoy!
As a rule, the larger the shirt, the better. But-if you find the perfect shirt in a smaller size-no problem! Just use coordinating knits from your stash, or another shirt, for the straps or ruffle. You can also make the apron larger by using a coordinating knit to make a larger rectangle for the “background” of the skirt image.
1. Cut the front design out in a large rectangle from sleeve inseam to sleeve inseam, and from under the neck to the bottom of the shirt:2. Fold the bottom of the shirt up until it’s right under the design, then fold the hem down for a more finished look. Sew into four even sections, with the end section sewn into two for spoon slots.
5. Put them on top of each other with wrong sides facing and seams matched, pin, and stitch allllll the way around to make your apron waistband/ties.
