how to make t-shirt pom pom flowers

Happy Monday everyone! Today I'm going to show you step-by-step how to make these pretty flowers out of... a t-shirt!



I had this blue shirt I had never worn...


I cut it into strips. I used a juice glass to trace circles onto it, then cut them out.


I had a piece of scrap felt that I used as the base. I folded each circl in half twice, then glued it on to the felt until the pieces formed a circle, like this...


Then I added another round of them...


The ninth circle I used for this one went in the middle...


Once it was all assembled, I added a little dab of hot glue when needed to make it look the way I wanted.


The end result...


For this one, I had cut some of the circles out of the shirt, right close to the edge. I thought it would look interesting to have the stitching show throughout the flower...


The other type I made is just slightly different. Instead of cutting out circles, I cut out these flower-looking shapes...


And then put it all together the same way...


It was just slightly different, but very pretty once it was finished...


I was able to make these 4 out of that shirt:


What's your favourite way to use fabric flowers??
