How to Make a Flower Out of a T-Shirt

Remember these outfits? Notice how they have the same flowers. 
Check them out here and here.
Here's how to make them:
Materials needed:
one old t-shirt
fabric scissors
needle
thread
Cut t-shirt into slightly different sized circles.
Start with the larger circles. Fold in half then into thirds. Hand sew the folded circle to the smallest circle. 
Continue sewing folded circles, working from largest to smallest, till its as full as you want it to be.
For this flower I used seven circles plus an eighth small one to sew them all to.
I sewed mine on to a headband. 
Enjoy your new flowers! Get creative: use different colors, add buttons, sew 'em on to bags. If you make one send me a picture! I'd love to see. Happy crafting!
