Supplies Needed: A button up shirt, cloth, lace or other trim embellishments, scissors, needle, several color of embroidery floss, pins, a embroidery hoop, bleach in a spray bottle, a small paint brush, and a spray bottle of vinegar.
I laid and experimented with the pieces in several ways before deciding on the final setup.
I then pinned all my pieces into place and used the embroidery hoop stretched around a section of the design to keep my stitching straight and even. I threaded my needle and began.
After I hand stitched ever thing into place I decided to add a quote and some more texture to the shirt. I used chalk to draw out and place my words on the shirt. I then used the spray bottle of vinegar to soak the shirt so that the bleach would not bleed so easily. I used bleach and a paint brush to paint out my words on the back of the shirt. I also spray the bleach on the bottom of the shirt. Then I washed the shirt and wallllaaa. I wish I had more pictures of the bleaching process but it's a very time sensitive thing... which keeps you on your toes and dedicated.
This project took me nearly a month to accomplish. Most of that time spent contemplating on what all I was going to do to it but It is probably my favorite DIY to date and it's always nice to have my hands busy while watching movies ;)
