Beautiful T-Shirt Poppies to Brighten Your Day

In our last blog we suggested saving your t-shirts that might have a small stain or hole in them for fabric scraps. So what do you do with all those fabric scraps?

There are tons of tutorials out there that utilize scraps in one form or another, but we came across this unique blog post from Melissa @ Until Wednesday Calls. We couldn’t resist these pretty little poppies. Just looking at them made us smile! Envision them attached to just about everything! Pillows, purses, t-shirts, canvas pictures. The application could be endless.

The supplies are simple. Fabric circles in varying sizes, eyelets and eyelet tool, contrasting fabric scraps and some fabric glue. You can get the full tutorial here, complete with step-by-step instructions and pictures.

If you can’t resist them either, make a few and let us know how you used them. You can comment below or post on our Facebook page.
