Ladies Shirt Embellishing...I love green.

I finally got around to embellishing the shirts I bought a while back.  Kelly Green is one of my favorite colors.  I went through a bag of clothes that I was going to donate and took out this shirt because I thought I could use the satin polka dot tie.
I snipped it off...
and tied it into a bow.  As you can see below the cut end doesn't match the finished end.  So I tucked it inside itself and sewed along the edge.  I also sewed along the edge of the other side to make them match.
Then I carefully attached the bow by sewing it in place here and there in places that wouldn't be noticeable.
I took one of my grandma's old clip on earings and attached it to the middle of the bow.
I love my new shirt!
