Although summer is almost over (but not quite!) there is always time to create a T-shirt embellished with our Favorite Findings Shell BUTTONS!
This is actually a top I had sitting in my closet (remember when cleaning out the closet/drawers – think, can I create something with this? and I guarantee you – you’ll be suprised what you come up with).
- Favorite Findings Shellz Buttons – 2 bags
- Recycled T-shirt
- Multi Strand Beads
- Embroidery Floss
Although it may seem like ALOT of buttons – I was able to use 2 packs of the Shellz Buttons
These Favorite Findings Shellz Buttons #1802 – you will get 4 sizes (12 each) 1/2″, 5/8″, 3/4″. and 7/8″. You will need 2 packs of these.
When out shopping I found these beads that were on strands (jewelry department) and although I may not use everything on this project I know I’ll have extra for future projects. PS – there were plenty of other colors available on strands…
So I pre-washed my top and had everything ready: scissors, embroidery floss; needle (make sure to find a needle that the bead will be able to slide through.
My start point was at the neckline – remember there is no right or wrong. Have fun with this.
Keep going until you’ve reached the other side. I strongly recommend that you don’t go completely around the neck of the t-shirt, however this is your preference. Remember when your have long hair it may get tangled!
So what are you waiting for get out there and start stitching those buttons on!
