Cut the sleeves off your T-shirt—we cut ours to leave a small cap sleeve
Make a 3/8 in (1cm) hem at the bottom of each sleeve and hand stitch in place.
Cut through the side seams of the sleeves that you removed in order to make single layers of fabric. Draw a flower shape onto paper to use as a template. Cut it out, and use it to cut flowers from the sleeve.
To make a flower, pinch the center to bring the petals together. Secure with a stitch.
Scatter the flowers on the front of the T-shirt to help you decide where to position them. Pin them in place.
Stitch each flower down using a small stitch: this will be hidden by the petals. Fluff the flowers and then you're done!
