Upcycled Tank: Updated with Fabric Flowers

upcycled tank top, flowers (1)

Do you remember the upcycled bow tank I posted here?

It looked like this:

I decided I didn’t love the bow. The bow didn’t always stand up the way it was supposed to. So I added a few fabric flowers. I used this tutorial for the fabric flowers. Sort of, anyway. I didn’t sew them down with as many rows of stitching as the tutorial shows.

It was an easy update and now I love this shirt even more.

You should make one of these shirts. 
It’s made from a long sleeved girls’ XL shirt which I got at a thrift store for $1. 
Full tutorial found here.
