reverse applique doily tshirt

Sew a doily to a t-shirt, cut the area behind the doily away, and what do you get? A cool lacy embellishment for a t-shirt that is oh-so-easy to do. Even if you aren’t comfortable with a sewing machine, you can hand-stitch this project in less than an hour. If you don’t like showing skin through your t-shirt, wear the shirt over another shirt, or sew a circle of different colored t-shirt behind the doily. You could also use this technique for a cute swimsuit cover-up for summer. Project by Naja at My Closet Thrift Store. [how to make a cut-away doily t-shirt] [via Craftster]
