I bought a shirt from Forever 21 and surprise, surprise--it shrunk;) And it didn't just do the overall normal shrinkage, oh no. It did a weird shrink up, but some how widen through the body??
Now I'm not knocking Forever 21, I buy a lot of clothes from them because they're cheap and trendy, but usually you're allowed to WASH them....
Do not wash?!? Really??? I mean come on!
Well, that loss turned into a fabulous hoop art project:)
I grabbed a seem ripper(why is this such an awful task?!?) and took the applique off.
I took the body of the tank and stretched it over the quilting hoop I had laying around. It was a little see-through, so I backed it with a white flour sack towel I also had laying around. I had this gorgeous massive blue flower that Amy made and didn't know what to do with(ummm I'll take it!!) so I decided to add it because I'm lovin' the blue yellow combo right now
and it really was massive...too massive for a lot of projects...but not this one!
I attached the flower and applique(which I decided to cut in two so I'd have "leaves")....pretty sure I did this wrong, but they stay...and that's what matters right?!
I then trimmed the excess fabric and used my trusty glue gun to glue my fingers....errr fabric to the hoop. Why is that glue so hot?! And why must it always find it's way to my finger??
I'm so happy with how it turned out! I kinda feel like somethings missing up top, but I had to resist my usual urge to add too much to it :)
So I made some art...for free!! I had all this stuff laying around, I love when that happens!
