Upcycling Beautiful Butterflies

Yesterday I stumbled across upcycling old t shirts on the internet. Some of the ideas were so fantastic I just had to give it a go.
Armed with two old shirts, my machine and some elastic I set to work cutting and sewing.
My daughter asked for something with butterflies, I had no idea what I was doing let alone putting any decoration on it! Then I remembered my beautiful butterflies die, perfect as it cuts material wonderfully.
After making a top and skirt I machined on the butterflies and antenna.
Sorry but I am very proud seeing I haven't made any sort of clothing, only nick nacks. Hope you like it to, my daughter does and that suits me down to the ground.
Why don't you dust off your machine and give something a new lease of life with some stampin up dies! Happy sewing XXX.
