Ribbon Flag Shirt ~adorable~

I know the Fourth is over, but I wanted to share this simple little ribbon flag shirt I made my daughter to celebrate the Fourth in.

LOOOVe it! <3 <3 <3

I got my inspiration from this pin on Pinterest. (The pin did not direct to a website, so I’m not sure where it came from :()

It took like all of 5 minutes. (Okay, it was a little longer than that, but it was real-quick like. ;))

First, I figured out how big I wanted the flag to be, and then traced a faint outline of the flag onto the front of the shirt.

For the first row, I cut one blue and one striped ribbon, each the width of the flag.  For the second and third row I cut the striped ribbon double the width of the flag.

Next, I started pinning and gathering the ribbon into the outline of the flag…

You can also gather the ribbon with a baste stitch, but I was going for a more random, wavy look, so I pinned it.

Finally, I sewed down the ends of the ribbon, and then, sewed across the center of each row.

For all you visual people, *me, raising hand* here is a close up, so maybe my ramblings will make sense…

Done!

It turned out so stinking cute!

With the left over ribbon, I also made Baby Girl a little bow for her hair.

The little red ruffle skirt I bought at Wal-Mart.

Oh, and the ribbon and little white shirt came from there also. What can I say? I’m a Wal-Mart girl, y’all! (Okay, no funny comments about “People of Wal-Mart”! I’m not THAT kind of Wal-Mart girl!!!!)

I tried to get a picture of my daughter wearing her new flag shirt, but this was as good as it got…

Love the bow falling off her head! :D

(Why, yes, I do clean fingerprints off that window regularly… Thanks for asking! *ahem* ;))

Have a great one! :D

Linked to these parties.; and…
It’s So Very Cheri
