T-shirt restyling with grandma’s doily!

My grandma loves knitting. She has made a ton of doilies for us. But…i am not a fan of having doilies around the house! I don’t know what i am going to do with all that staff! Anyway i found a solution for one of them!
A butterfly knitted with golden thread! ( I have three more of them! ) I bought a simple white t-shirt to add the butterfly on.

I started by carefully removing the butterfly from the fabric using a small pair of scissors.

I added the doily on the back of the blouse. After some experiments i decided that this was going to be its place…

I got some iron-on interfacing ( i think it’s also known as spider) and cut it in pieces matching the sides of the butterfly. I fixed them with the iron and in almost no time the doily was fixed in place! I did not use any thread to fix it any further since it was not necessary.  I let it cool down and got my small scissors and carefully started cutting the excess fabric under the doily.
