Faux necklace T-shirt

My daughter wanted to wear the flower in her hair.  I used a bit of velcro on the flower.  We can use it  for her hair or her top :)

I came across this awesome blog

Right away I had to try this fun technique out.  I used what I had on hand.  I used a hand me down white t-shirt just to practice on.  Next time I try this I am going to get a nicer quality T-shirt.  I think it is cute for my first try.  Thank you to Kelly over at living craftily ever after for the inspiration and great tutorial!

  1. Super cute! How does the velcro flower work?

  2. Oh I put a little bit of sticky velcro on the back of the flower then I put the other piece of sticky velcro on the T-shirt... the sticky part is just sticky enough it will come off easily if you pry it off. Then I took that sticky part that was on the top and stuck it on a hair clip then stuck the flower on that. Does that make sense? lol sorry if it is confusing. The flower is WAY easy to make.
    I found a great tutorial to make it by cutting out circles out of polyester fabric, heat the edges with a flame and they wilt just like real petals :) I hand sewed the layers of petals together, added a little faux peal and we were done. Thanks for the comment!
