The 3-D Floral Top

Hello Refashion Co-op. I made a bright cheerful top to combat the cold rainy day I am having here. My inspiration from Pinterest can be seen here.

I started with a plain white mock turtleneck. I cut the neckband off. I hate turtlenecks, they just want to strangle me.

I used this shirt and cut out red circles. I stacked them up to make vaguely floral shapes.

I got some shiny black buttons out to use as the center of each flower. I attached the flowers with needle and thread.

After I attached the flowers I used this paint to draw stems on the shirt.

It was difficult to keep the lines perfectly neat. I decided to make the stems look more like a charcoal stretch. Being a little messy was much easier.

Here is my finished top, I love the bright red. I hope you are having a cheerful day where you are. 

Thanks for reading, now go make something fun for yourself. For more details and pictures go to I Can Work With That,
