Yellow Doily Shirt

I went through this phase a few weeks ago of refashioning t-shirts.  I got the idea for one from the blog, Maybe Matilda. (This link takes you directly to the tutorial for the Doily Shirt).  She has so many cute refashions and tutorials!  I could seriously look through her sight for hours!


I found a yellow shirt at Walmart for $4.  It had a pocket on the front that I didn't care for.  Me and Mr. Seam Ripper solved that problem.  There were little holes from where the thread was, but they disappeared after I washed it!  I also found the doilies at Walmart in the cake section.  (I've heard you can get doilies at the dollar store though, which would save you a dollar or so.)  I used white fabric paint.

This was so easy and I really enjoyed the whole process of it.  And now I have a cheerful yellow shirt to wear!

Oh, I LOVE your shirt! I hadn't even thought of white doilies on a colorful shirt, but that came out so cute. Great job, and thanks for the link :-)

I LOVE this! I just did something where I was painting doilies and I just love the patterns... I'm impressed you didn't end up with doily pieces stuck to your shirt (I kept having issues like that because I was a slow little painter)! : )
