Upcycling demo & Bow - Front Tee Shirt

I had great fun the other night at the Le Chéile group in Ring.  I started with a demo of my button tee, and showed a few other ideas to update a plain top or shirt. I brought along a box of fabric & lace goodies for everyone to rummage through, and everyone seemed to really enjoy themselves mixing and matching pieces to add to their clothes. 
The tee - shirt above was made by cutting a strip of silk and tying in a bow ( like you would for a present!) Then I ironed it flat and arranged it to one side of the tee - I machine stitched around the edges to hold it all together. Very simple to do, and also looks great using patterned fabric for the bow.
Below are a few examples from the workshop:)
