This was one of those craft projects that I was really, really excited about. This wouldn’t be something for the home, but just for ME. I went into Old Navy last week and it seems shirts with phrases on them are hot right now. I saw ‘Holy Chic’, ‘Merci’ and several others. I have also seen several ‘Wifey’ shirts posted on Instagram lately, but I didn’t want to pay a lot of money for one. I decided to make my own Wifey shirt with gold sequins! Why not, right?!
After the glue had dried, I got out some gold thread and a needle… you will want to sew every three sequins down for extra support. I would thread every three sequins with my thread overlapping them on the inside of the shirt. Also, be sure to bring your needle through the center hole in the sequins.
AND, don’t forget to wash this shirt inside out on delicate cycle.
You’ve got yourself a wifey shirt! My husband just chuckles at me when he sees this shirt. It is a darn cute shirt, I must say so myself.
Since this is more of a craft post then a fashion post, stay tuned for how I will style this shirt! This was just a quick photo shoot after church and I quickly changed out of my church clothes into some distressed jeans and this wifey shirt. Oh, I guess I did put on a pair of coral feather earrings, aviators and my Coach wristlet. I had to put a little effort into it. 😉
It only took me an afternoon to make this shirt and I am already thinking about making a mini version for my daughter… it won’t say ‘wifey’, tho… but, maybe some other phrase in pink sequin letters. You could easily do this on a pillow case for the couch… it is a pretty easy project!
