I’m so excited to show you this week’s refashion! Purple is such an awesome color for the spring, too. This Fabric Bow Back T-Shirt took a bit longer than some of the other t-shirt tutorials because I had to make all the fabric bows, but once you make the squares, the shirt comes together nicely.

These last three weeks, I’ve been racing to a finish line trying to get all my bow refashions done before the end of school. (I will be setting all the blog posts on publish during the time that I’m studying for the Bar.) My poor husband has been quite understanding and quite helpful with all of my refashions, too. He’s been putting in some work, with taking pictures and going shopping with me!

I started by cutting out six bows from a purple fat quarter. I used the ends to make the bow centers. See my fabric bow tutorial here.
