Zebra Heart Throb Ensemble

I gave you a sneak peek of Widget's Valentines outfit in this post. And, now I'm happy to show you the full ensemble...

It started off with a zebra print shirt (from Walmart-less than $4 if I remember correctly), then I free-handed a few hearts onto the shirt with my orange fabric FriXion pen
 Once I had my design planned, I pinned my teal ruffle fabric to the inside of the shirt and made a reverse applique...like this.
 Once the outline was sewn, then I cut away the front pieces of the shirt (inside the stitching).
I kept sewing and cutting until I filled all my design.
 A view of the inside of the shirt...
 I then cut two long strips (of ruffles) and a ruffle to the edge of each sleeve, then sewed them on using a double needle (to match the original hem).
And I made a matching (ruffle) skirt using this tutorial. Tomorrow I'll show you the fun outfit on Widget.

  1. I was going to comment on your other post that was linked up on the WKWW, but I could not see the comment box so I thought of leaving a message here instead. She was definitely rocking her outfit and that lovely skirt you made. I love, love, love it! I want to go buy some ruffle fabrics and make some for my little bee. :)
