a knock off embellished tank

Anyone go into Hollister and see this tank? with the cute side floral? I LOVED it and was tempted to buy it but could not get over the price tag of $29.50CDN! Yikes! A plain tank with an embellishment for $30! So I thought I could embellish my own tank fairly easily. Want to save $ too - then here is an easy how to.

I will no doubt be buying more tanks in different colors and finding different knit colors and I think I'll keep my eye open for some chiffon or tulle to add into the flower so it has a more "airy" feel. But with what I had on hand this is what I got:

and here's how you can make your own using scrap knit. Get a long-ish piece of knit fabric, fold it in half and cut slits.

 Roll it up, starting at the small end

I made 2 of these flowers

pin the flowers onto your tank wherever you like them to be and stitch in place
