Crochet Trimmed T-shirt

While on our recent car trip, I wanted to learn new stitches with a triangle motif from Crochet School. Three attempts later, I was happy with the results. Since I was using my stash, no chance of making a shawl or scarf. What to do with my motif? How about sewing it to a t-shirt with a neckline too low for my taste. And then I realized if I washed it, the motif would stretch out. So I sewed snaps around the motif and the neck of the shirt so I could remove it to wash it. Crazy, I know.

Now I am psyched to adorn more t-shirts with the Japanese flower motif. Never a shortage of ideas, just a shortage of time.


  1. That is really cute! I can't wait to see how else you explore this idea! The blossoms on that tree are gorgeous, btw!

  2. I can see taking that same idea and turning it into a necklace. Lovely motif!
