4th of July Tanks Tutorial...

Since it's almost The Fourth Of July, I thought it would be fun to make the girls some festive tanks.  I picked up 3 of these little american flags for a $1 at Michaels.

So I just ripped the flag off of the stick and pinned it to the tank and sewed it along the top.
Then I pinned a line of lace along the bottom edge and then sewed the remaining three side of the flag to the tank top.
So easy, cute, and cheap.
I made another one with this navy colored tank top too.




For little boys you could also sew a flag onto a plain T.  Gotta have the lace for the girls though ;).

Great idea for the little ones. Love how you have added the lace. Your girls are really cuties!

Love the idea. Did you prewash the flags? I'm worried the dye will ruin the white tank once it gets wet. Let me know you thoughts.

I should be trying to wash off a juice stain tomorrow and will let you know how it washes. I never thought about it bleeding onto the white, hope it doesn't!
