A few months ago, the stain remover spray I had been using left a big spot and a line on a favorite t-shirt of mine. I got away with wearing it under a jacket for a while but now that it’s spring I had to take some action.
Then I saw how My Backyard Eden used yo-yo’s to embellish a t-shirt!
I decided to go for it! I found some fabric in my stash that coordinated and used a large jar as my guide to cutting the circles (see the tutorials above for detailed instructions).
It really didn’t take too much time, and they were rather simple to make! I think I might have to make some more!
I used my machine to sew them on (around the center) as Carolyn at My Backyard Eden had suggested, mainly to keep them attached in the wash. I have to admit it was a bit challenging for me for sew around the bunched fabric in a nice circle. Maybe sewing the circle by hand would be better for me? I also decided to wait on hand stitching the outer circle to the fabric because I think I like the way they look sort of free versus flat. We’ll see if I have to change that after I wash the shirt!
Stain remover spot no more!
