You many have noticed that I have ads on the blog. I finally clicked on the "monetize" button on the dashboard. I now have ads on my blog and I'm making about .25/ day. Woohoo! So even if the Home Warranty doesn't pay up, I should be fine.
On to the crafts: My daughter's friend is having a b-day and so I thought it would be fun to make her a shirt. It turned out so cute, my daughter wants to keep it. It was pretty quick, so I promised I'd make her one too.
I started w/ a gray v-neck t-shirt. I had some light pink knit leftover from another project, which I used to make 3 flowers. I'm a little in love w/ knit flowers these days.
Many of you probably already know how to do this. If not, cut at least four squares out of the knit.
Fold each square into 4
Cut the unfolded edge so it looks like an ice-cream cone.
Sew each folded petal at the corners and sew a bead in the middle.
For flower #2, follow the same steps as in #1, but instead of laying it flat, sew all the points together and then secure to shirt.
Flower #3 -is my upside-down awesome blossom (tutorial found here)
I still had some leftover knit, so I thought I would make her something cute for here hair. I started by making 2 awesome blossoms. I glued felt on the back and glued it to a headband. I thought it needed something else.
I took a couple of very thin strips of knit and folded them in half.
Then I simply rolled them up and hot-glued them between the 2 awesome blossoms. I made a total of 3.

UPDATE: I just heard that I will again have AC Tuesday night-Wednesday at the latest! Really I only have to survive the weekend and then it's supposed to get cooler. I call my sewing room a "sweat shop"-I guess for the next few days it really will be.
