Time for Craft Challenge again! This month I grabbed my fabric markers from my stash. I bought them back in April and hadn't used them. Lately, I've been seeing some cute embroidered tops and I remembered I had this one in my closet. I got it in Mexico back in 2007 (10 years ago!?). I wanted to update the style to make it trendier, and this was the perfect chance to do so. Below I show you what I did to make this top trendier and how I used fabric markers to do "faux embroidery."
Faux Embroidery Using Fabric Markers
1. I cut off a piece at the hem. It was too long and "box" like.
2. After cutting a chunk off, I drew on my "embroidered" design. The possibilities are endless! This was really fun. Then, I hemmed the bottom.
3. Close up of my "embroidery." And, to make this little top more colorful, I sewed on some pom-pom trim to the sleeves.
4. Since the silhouette was still too "box" like, I sewed some elastic to the bottom.
5. Elastic sewn in.
Now, check out what the other participants of the Craft Challenge are creating this summer:
