Lucky little Sham Shirt..and little tutorial

So I had mentioned before that my girls were a little snobbish when it comes time for their holiday shirts!! I have made up their St. Patrick's Day shirt for this year with a little tutorial for you. I went with the rainbow theme that I am loving up and I also a tiny copy of a crewcuts shirt I saw at the outlets. The one at the outlets was on a grey tee with cream tulle bows around the neck--so darling. It got me thinking...what about a rainbow around the neck with a glam sham underneath? Let' see what you think!



I bought 1/4 yd of tulle in the rainbow colors--WAY more than you will need for 1 or even 10 shirts-- and then you will cut the tulle into 1 1/2 x 7 inch strips and tie them into little bows.
Place the little bows across the top of the tee as shown, making sure to place a piece of foil underneath, then you will just hot glue each bow to shirt. (I hot glue tulle to shirts all the time. It can be washed, inside out on the gentle cycle with cold water and hang dry).
Sorry for the BAD picture I am new at this!! But to make your glamsham you will need to trace a shamrock shape onto felt, have a roll of green sequins (mine are from Hobby Lobby for $1 on sale), and I used Aleene's Super Fabric glue. You just put the glue all over the felt and layer the sequin in a line to cover the whole shamrock.
Here is what the shirt looked like after it was completed!! I think it will be just perfect for warding off pinches!
Enjoy
