T-Shirt Challenge: Sequin & Bead T-Shirt

For my second t-shirt challenge I was channeling a more girlie fashion trend; sequins and beads! Have you seen t-shirt covered in glorious bling?!? I have and I love it!

I want to say the first time I ever saw this trend was via J.Crew. You really can not go wrong with blinged out embellishments, especially on a shirt. I transformed my plain, black v-neck t-shirt into something way more luxurious looking. By adding my sequin and bead trim to my shirt, it instantly turned it into a serious statement piece!

If you know how to sew, you can whip up this project in less than an hour!

 After working in advertising, for our local newspaper, for over 30 years, I was recently given the opportunity to retire – a great gift. This has opened a whole new chapter in my life.  For over 35 years I have  done custom drawings of homes, businesses,  vehicles,  (even a silo) for family, friends  and by word of mouth. I did the drawings while married, working full time, and raising two kids. But now that has all changed. Kids are grown and married and my husband, Mike, has agreed to work a few more years, which allows me to pursue what I love – DRAWING!   A home is usually the first major purchase  of a couple or young adult. Your home holds so many memories, first steps, holidays at the dining room table, barbecues in the backyard and laughs around the kitchen table. So why not turn your biggest investment into a work of art that you can treasure forever.

T-Shirt Challenge: Add Sequins to your shirt to dress it up! #happinessiscreating

Supplies:

– T-Shirt

– Sequin and Bead Trim (I bought mine from Joann’s)

– Scissors

– Needle and Thread

{Step 1}: Cut apart all of your sequin flowers. Mine were sewn on the back side, so when I cut them they did not come undone.

{Step 2}: Lay out your trim pieces on your shirt. Once you decide where you want all of your pieces, begin sewing. After you sew on your desired pieces of trim, you are all finished!
