Cuttlebug Couture

For all of my fashionista friends out there,  I have a treat in store for you. Cuttlebug couture!
I know we are knee deep in spring cleaning season, and as much fun as it is to dust the ceiling fans, and scrub the grout, maybe you should start by digging through the closet.
Thats right,ladies,Im giving you full permission to skip past the cobwebs, and reorganizing the medicine cabinet. We have more important matters to attend to, Fashion!!!  
Turn last seasons blah ho hum tee shirt into a one of a kind head turner! This week at Cuttlebug challenge, we are transforming the humble tee shirt. Oh yeah your cuttlebug can handle this!!! and so can you!

I wore this top all day yesterday, and the compliments came nonstop. Just think of how fantastic it will be to have a whole new wardrobe without one single trip to the mall...well lets not get carried away :)  

How To Make one of your own:
cut several flowers with the flower layers sizzix die{ stampin'Up!}. I have used a sheer polyester fabric.
treat fabric edges with fray check, this will continue the wash and wear quality we all love about tee shirts.
stitch flowers in place, and add sequins and beads if you want a little bling....and you know I have to have a spritz of sparkle!
Last but not least...... Wear it, wash it, love it, look fab!! Feel free to ask any questions, I will be checking in and will be happy to help you! I would love to hear from you :)

This is really fantastic, Shantaie! I am not surprised that you received lots of compliments. Wearing your art is a great way to let people know how talented you are. I am so glad you thought up this challenge idea.

This is absolutely gorgeous. I would never have thought to do this to an ordinary tank top. You have really made it classy. You could even wear it for a more formal event with a nice pair of smart black pants. YOU GO!
