Easter Egg Basket T-shirt Tutorial
Okay, this is my first Tutorial, so please be patient with me... I decided that I wanted an Easter basket with eggs and some grass for my Easter t-shirt... so I looked through my fabric and found some scraps of fabric that could pass for a basket. Then I found some tie-died scraps that would make some great eggs. I looked through my ribbon for something to make my basket handle and then the fake Easter basket grass. (no, I did not use plastic grass for my shirt)
What you will need:
fabric scraps for the basket and eggs. (I took mine from some fat quarters that I had in my stash)
Satin ribbon to make your basket handle
Sheer ribbon for your grass
Erasing ink fabric pen or pencil
First step was to turn the t-shirt inside out and on the front side I pinned the fabric for my basket making sure to center it.
Pin the fabric onto the t-shirt making sure not to pin it to the backside of the t-shirt (you don't want to sew it closed)
Take your erasing ink pen or pencil and draw the shape of your basket.
Here is a closer view of my basket
Sew on the lines of your basket that you drew, then turn the shirt right side out and this is what you have:
