DIY: Floral t-shirt embroidery

Because of the corona crisis I spend more time at home. It isn’t always fun, but one of the advantages is that it gives me the calmness I need to get creative. For example, lately I have recoated my retro record case and made a make up table from an old desk. Also, I started embroidering again! The first project: a t-shirt embroidery.

Hours of embroidery

I bought a plain white T-shirt and drew a floral pattern on paper. I selected embroidery thread, beads and sequins. Where to use them? I coloured the design, to have a vision of the result and traced the pattern on the fabric. Then it was time to get to work! I embroidered on the couch, the balcony and even in bed.

The result

The result is a cheerful top with flowers placed exactly on the breasts. Something that made my mom chuckle, but I actually really like it. 😉 The sequins sparkle beautifully in the sun, so it’s a nice eyecatcher for springtime!

    Wat een ontzettend leuk idee! De kleuren die je hebt uitgekozen zijn ook echt super mooi, het lijkt me leuk om te leren borduren en meteen alles the diy-en 😉
