I love finding festive clothes for the girls around the holidays. Maggie is really into Christmas this year & loves wearing anything related to the season. This year I was determined to make some shirts for the girls. So far I have made these two. They were both easy & came out really cute. Be sure to check out the "freebie" at the bottom of the post.
Christmas Tree Ribbon Shirt
I saw a few ideas on Pinterest, combined them, added a few ideas of my own & came up with this:
I had some gold glittery buttons (no idea why) & you all know I can put ric rac on just about anything.
This was actually really easy to do & I am making a few more right now as gifts. I used a sewing machine BUT if you don't sew, they make rolls of iron on adhesive tape that would be perfect for this project.
Basically you cut ribbon & ric rac to make the shape of a tree. Then add some brown ribbon at the bottom for a tree trunk. Last, sew something "glittery" at on the top for the star.
I lined all of the ribbon up first & pinned it in place & then sewed one straight line across. If using the tape, you would just cut a piece the length of each piece of ribbon & then iron across the whole tree.
For the button on top, you could hot glue it on, if you really don't want to sew anything!
