fall tee

After seeing some cute candy corn tees around I decided I wanted to make one :) So I took a white eyelet shirt I had that had become to big and cut it up to be my white. I also took a yellow shirt of my boys that didn't fit right and was rather worn and cut it for the yellow. I then sewed it together like strips.

Now it was time to cut out my candy corn using my template.
and sew it on. Since the shirt was for my daughter and I wanted it a bit more frilly I added a ruffle along the bottom, also cut from the eyelet shirt :)
With the remaining section of fabric I cut out a few strips to make some matching rosettes!
Rolled them up and pinned them to sew.
And here's the finished product!

I don't know where you find the time or energy but it looks like you're having fun and getting some cute stuff in the process.

ah that is so cute! Just found your blog! I wanted to let you know that I recently started a "Handmade Tuesdays." I am featuring a tutorial (let me know if you ever want to be featured) and then am also going to have a linky at the bottom where people can link up previous tutorials they did. It can be from any time but the only rule is it cannot be linked up again. I am also going to be randomly featuring etsy shops as well because not everyone can make things! So please link up on Tuesday!

I love that shirt!!! So cute :) Make me wish I had a girl.
You asked me a question about the campfire cake. I didn't add the coloring until I had taken it off the burner. Same goes for any flavoring you might use. I didn't put anything on the tin foil. It will come off just fine. I just played around with pouring it. It makes enough that you won't need to use it all. So if some don't work out that's ok. I hope that made sense. Let me know if you have any other questions.
