A Christmas Tree Shirt for GranddaughterStitches

I just finished a new little Christmas shirt for GranddaughterStitches.  I found the great tutorial here.  (Thanks, VixenMade!)  Since she gave such a thorough tutorial, I won't bother to repeat it here.

I bought a simple long-sleeved t-shirt, some green lace, and sequins.  I used WonderUnder to fuse the lace to the shirt.

Then I sewed all the way around the edges to secure it before adding the sequins.

I used invisible thread to sew on the sequins.  Kind of a pain to work with, but the stitches hardly show at all!

DaughterStitches told me that GranddaughterStitches loved receiving the shirt in the mail.  She really likes all the "jewels" on the tree, but can't decide which color she likes best.  Oh, such problems!


  1. Yay!! This looks great! Thanks so much for sharing this with me. And I'm so glad you got to make one, too! SO cute to hear she liked her new shirt!!

  2. So cute Jan! Where did you find the green lace? I should make one for big girl!!!!!

  3. Teresa, I found the green lace at the J-store (Joann's). It comes like regular 44" fabric on a bolt. With the satins and fancy fabrics.
