upcycling a tee shirt using my new ribbon from meiflower

hi fellow bloggers I have said before what a ribbon addict I am and thought I'd post a project I where I have used some lovely satin ribbon from Meiflower using a technique that I learnt from their very patient demonstrator at the SECC in March. Video demo from Meiflower here http://meiflowerblog.co.uk/2011/christmas-wreath-using-sage-green-ribbon/


I made 2 strips of pleated black ribbon and sewed them as decor to a plain teeshirt to match and then made a longer strip and turned it into a flower shape with a gold button as a centre for the centre of the neckline.
The ribbon and for the strips I used just over a metre. The flower took about 2 metres. The Meiflower ribbon rolls are 23metres for £1.99
