Pink Pansy Shirt

This shirt is one of the many things I made for Christmas presents. This is the last shirt I did. I made this for my sister-in-law. I decided to get a shirt that was a pink shade because I had seen her wear pink stuff before.

I bought two shirts from Joann's at their Veteran's Day Sale. I was trying to make my flowers like the ones in this post from Make It and Love It, but I never could get my flowers to turn out the way she did so I just did my own thing.

Deets~ I cut lots and lots of circles again with this one. I cute some that were about 3 inches in diameter and some that were about 2 inches in diameter. I then sewed about 5 of them together sewing across the diagonal three times. It looked liked a pizza with six slices. I then cut between all the layers except the last one to make it look like a flower. I sewed on three beads in the center which I purchased at Wal-Mart. I cut the collar off the main shirt and gave it more of a dropped neckline, and then I tacked the flowers onto the shirt by the back circle that I didn't cut through. I had some extra flowers left over so I made some hairclips to go with the shirt. I didn't take any pictures of the hairclips, though.
