Today marks the 100th school day for my 2nd grader.
The class has a fun celebration planned,
and her teacher asked that each child wear a t-shirt decorated with 100 things.
I, of course, procrastinated until last night to work on it...
I knew that no matter what I put together
- it would be time consuming -
so it might as well be something cute that she could wear again.
I started with this cute shirt from Old Navy
(except ours had navy stripes with blue flowers.)
I figured it already had 2 flowers -
why not add 98 more?!
Using fabric from my stash, I cut the additional 98 flowers.
(It took a while...)
Then, using Wonder Under I ironed them to the shirt.
Not wanting anything too uniform, I randomly applied here and there.
(This is the back of the shirt.)
To make sure it would hold up well in the wash,
I quickly sewed the edges of the flowers - nothing too perfect.
I look forward to seeing how the edges fray; I love that look!
My daughter was thrilled with the results and couldn't wait to go to school!
