Diy Embroidered babygirl shirt

I saw a tumblr post with a shirt that I really liked, So I followed the link to the website where I found out the shirt was like $28?!? Seriously I would never spend that much money on a shirt I could make myself. I went to walmart bought my supplies and ended up spending about $7.  So with basic knowledge of sewing I decided to try and recreate it.

Of course you could use any word, or design you want to recreate.

 

Supplies you’ll need:

Easy Diy My Little Pony Costume

Every year I get the task of making my nieces Halloween costumes, which usually ends up with lots of tulle and a lot of trying to make everything as perfect as I can.

 

Well this year, the task was MLP Rainbow dash & Twilight Sparkle.

So like any semi crafty person, I went to pinterest to try and find some Ideas.

I never just find one idea and stick to it. So this year I took these Ideas and ran with it.

I saw this post for a twilight sparkle tutu & wings that i liked.

This headband / unicorn horn that I liked.

Then or Rainbow Dash, I found this tutu:

Wing & Ear tutorial

But where we live, there was no way they were going to be able to wear those crocheted tops, So we had to opt out for T-shirts with cutie marks drawn on them.

This is what we ended up with!

Influenster Schwarzkopf Voxbox!

Let me just start off my saying, my hair is by no means healthy. I’ve been coloring my hair since about 7th grade which means it’s been a while 😉

It is currently a faded out red color, shoulder length and very fine in texture.

When I got the email saying I had been picked for the Schwarzkopf box I was elated.

I’m a hair product junkie and when I say this I mean it. Any time I’m at a drugstore I’m probably down the hair care isle looking for something to tame my damaged frizzy hair.

Well Thanks to influenster I’ve found some pretty awesome products.

DIY Yin Yang Tie Dye!

I’ve been rocking the tie dye since about 7th grade so when I saw this picture on pinterest I knew I had to try it!

78e378ad5d6f2bbb40733e3a1be02ea3

When I went to see how to make this specific design, I saw most people did it with two different colors, which looks awesome but I wanted more of the traditional Yin Yang colors so I went to the store to get some black dye and got started!

Step One: Gather Supplies:

DSC_0062

White shirt, gloves, fabric dye, gloves, plastic bag, squeeze bottle, rubber bands and awesome tunes 😉

Step 2: Wet the shirt

DSC_0063

Step 3: Find the middle of the shirt

DSC_0065

Step 4: Draw a rough outline of what you want

DSC_0066

I used a plastic tub, you could use a plate or anything round. This is where finding the middle of the shirt comes into play, trace your round shape onto the top half of the shirt then slide it down and do the opposite side.

So that in the end you have the yin yang outline on the shirt

Step 5: Tie up the “eyes” on both sides

DSC_0071

Step 6: Fan fold the rest of the shirt

DSC_0072

Step 7: Tie the middle of the shirt on the fold you just created.

DSC_0073

Step 8: fold and tie the rest of the shirt into whatever design you want

Step 9: Dye the shirt

DSC_0075

Mix the dye inside the squeeze bottle according to the box directions

I used aluminum foil to cover the “eyes” so that no dye would get on places I didnt want.

Step 10: Let sit for 24 hours in bag.

And finally

Step 11: Rinse dye off shirt with cold water

My final product doesn’t look like the pinterest post because my design/folding was a little different and i didn’t make the fabric dye as strong, but I’m very happy with it. ^.^
