I have an obsession with pretty fabric. I will hold onto the tiniest little scraps of beautiful fabric forever, knowing eventually I will find a use for them.
This week I found a use for some them; I stitched them into yoyos and used them to turn a cheap Wal Mart tank top into an adorable little top for Felicity.
I really enjoy making yoyos, it's so much fun to pull out a bit of thread and needle and sitch them up while watching a movie with my husband in the evening.
If you don't know how to make yoyos, then Click Here to go to a wonderful tutorial I found. They are super easy to make, even for someone with no sewing skills.
For her shirt I took my yoyos that were already made and then stitched them down the side of her shirt and also stitched on a few lace strips underneath the bottom two.
I added some buttons and rhinestones as well for some sparkle (which Felicity loves).
We went out into the field and took pictures of her in her new shirt sitting in the chair I refinished last week.
I have a bunch of fabric scraps left that I plan to use over the next couple of weeks to decorate up some other shirts for her and maybe myself as well.
Also, the tutu, lace leggings and feather hair fascinator she's wearing these pictures are from my line, "Inspired By Felicity" and are available on my website: www.InspiredByFelicity.com
