It's a T-Shirt Challenge for Be Inspired #79

This week at Cuttlebug Challenge Blogspot, the International Desgin Team was asked to decorate an actual *T-Shirt* while keeping Provocraft products in mind.

I couldnt figure out which fabrics would die-cut best with the Cuttlebug dies, so in the end, I opted for decorating a Princess T-Shirt and just using Cuttlebug Embossing Folders on my matching Princess Card.  :)

Below is my Princess creation, but I cant take ALL the credit for this since my littlest girl supervised the whole process! :) She is so excited with this fun Princess T-shirt - that magically transformed itself into a Princess Play Dress!  :)  It was a blast to make and I learned so much along the way.  Could probably do this again if I had to, but would rather buy ready-made Fashions next time!  LOL!!! :)

Here are the BEFORE pictures of the White T-Shirt & Separate Skirt:

Here is the AFTER picture of the Princess T-Shirt Dress along with its matching Princess Card:

Close-up of the FOIL Princess Iron-on
The Princess word is a FOIL Iron-on. Hearts were HOT-Glued directly onto T-shirt. A double layer of Satin ribbons are sewn onto sleeve ends. Double Organza ribbon was added to neckline. And Pink Tulle is tied around waistline (but that's mainly an add-on to hide my bad sewing job.) heheh.  All in all, it was a very long process, but what a FUN end-result! :)

Supplies & Accessories:
White Youth Small Tshirt (From Michael's), New Small Foo-Foo Pink layered Princess skirt, Sewing Machine, Iron, Hot Glue Gun (first time using that), eart Rhinestones, Tulle, Organza Ribbon, Satin Ribbon, Foil Iron.
