DIY Daisies T-Shirt

DIY Daisies

I love plastic flowers! My favorite swimsuit is a cute vintage one covered in plastic daisies.  Flowers make lovely decorations for t-shirts, jumpers, handbags, cases–the options are endless!  This project is really easy; you only need scissors or a knife for studding if you choose a piece of light cloth like cotton. Recycle your old plastic file dividers or any scrap of soft plas­tic and get a lovely customized t-shirt!
