i do... do... doodle

Who doesn't doodle, right?



I had this plain light brown shirt for a while, and there it was, a spot next to the neckline. 
Time for an intervention!!

I wasn't sure what to do with it, so I started to sketch some ideas, and ended up doodling (like always).

... I took it to the next level.
... made it big.
... made it thick.
... cut it out.
... sew it down.


I cut out the doodling from the paper, then traced it on an old shirt that was waaaay too small now (let's not get into that, please), and hand stitched around the neck line of my spotted shirt. 
It was done in about an hour and love the result!

  8. You are brilliant! I doodle so many ideas, but never put them on a shirt. I always stick to the basics like just adding a bow or something.
