I got this striped shirt for 98 cents off of a clearance rack. I bought it with best intentions of cutting it up and using it for the fabric. I happened to have jersey in nearly the exact same blue and green colors. Instead of discarding the shirt, I used long strips of the blue and green fabric to create these flowers and add a little interest. I'd pay at least $1.50 for this shirt post-embellishment. hah.
