I fell in love with this fabric when it first came out....it's vintage transistor radios in an array of blues and oranges (my favorite color combination as you may notice on my blog design.)
After making a pillows I couldn't let the remaining fabric go to waste, so I decided to soup up some tank tops for Mr. P. and his friends.
But this is an easy way to spice up any tank top. I'd like to say I spent hours on this project, but all three took about 20 minutes...total....(it's an easy one! I promise!!!)
tank top (Target sells an 8-pack for pretty cheap)
fabric that has a large design you can cut out
Simply cut out the design that you want to sew onto your tank top. I like working with fabric that has larger images - it's easier to manage!
There's something about a nice layered look that gives depth and texture to any project. To achieve this, I simply cut out pieces of felt that would rest sandwiched between my tank and my applique - so make sure the felt is a bit larger (mine was about 1/4 - 1/2 and inch larger than the applique) than whatever size you're fabric image is.
Sew the applique to the felt. I like to use a color that pops to add an extra dimension. You probably can't even see the orange thread.....ho hum.
Sew the felt / applique to your tank top / ti-shirt / bag / whatever!
Happy tank top = happy boy!
p.s. If you decide to make an applique tank / shirt / skirt / bag.....email me! I'd love to feature you with a link back to your site at the end of July!
