DIRECTIONS:

FOR WHITE T-SHIRT:

  1. Draw a line on T-shirt where dotted line is shown in Fig. A. Cut along this dotted line to remove a small section of the T-shirt. Finish the raw edge by stitching across it in a zigzag pattern.
  2. Pin Fringy Ribbon to T-shirt as shown in Fig. B. Sew in place.
  3. Cut a 32" piece of Fringy Ribbon. Turn each end over twice and stitch to secure. Make a bow with the ribbon and sew the finished bow on the T-shirt as shown in photo.

FOR PINK T-SHIRT:

  1. Using a threaded needle, tie thread in a knot to secure and begin basting down the center of the Fringy Ribbon. Ruche the ribbon as you go by gently pushing it towards the knot.
  2. Continue ruching in this way until there is enough ruched ribbon to cover the entire neckline as shown in Fig. C. Tie thread in a knot to secure ruching and trim both ribbon and thread accordingly.
  3. Ruche another piece of ribbon to cover the left sleeve as in Fig. C. Ruche a third piece to cover the right sleeve. Pin the ruched Fringy Ribbon along the neckline and sleeves of the T-shirt as shown in Fig. C. Sew in place. Use your imagination to customize your T-shirt by adding additional colors of Fringy Ribbon, along with the embellishments of your choice.
