In this post, I would like to show you all what you can do with those bottom shirt seams that we have cut off the t-shirts when making t-shirt thread in our other patterns. FLOWERS!
Cut along the bottom end of the t-shirt just above the hem line. Try to get as close as possible to the stitching without cutting it.
It is your decision if you want to double up the seam or cut it apart. It is sometimes easier to double it like I did, so you don’t have to deal with frayed ends, it is also faster when you have to do various flowers. Next, start weaving the needle and thread back and forth through the seam, as shown in the picture. You will start to see that the bottom gets wavy as in the picture.
When you have woven the thread through the whole seam, pull the strip down a little bit so that it is crincked back and forth throughout the entire seam as shown in the picture and then tie a knot in the thread but don’t cut your thread off.
The next step is to start from the end where the needle and thread is and start rolling your seam in a circle. I usually will take my needle and push it through every few layers, but you can roll the whole thing and sew it at the end, it just depends on how long your needle is.
