Ooh! That's super cute. I just might have to do that with a few shirts...I can't stand long sleeves. But I live in Saskatchewan Canada where half the year is winter so I try to keep some long sleeves around so I'm not always stuck wearing the same sweaters. But I do have a few shirts with long sleeves that aren't comfortable or have shrunk a little bit and I'm looking to recon them soon...

Thanks for the tute!  Those bow sleeves ROCK my world!

This is adorable.  You could even attach the bows with snaps so that they don't have to go through the wash with the shirt, and you could play around with using one bow or two.  So many options!

All this and more at there is so much

Great tutorial! That shirt looks a million times better than it did. I really want one for myself-to Old Navy!

This is great, like all your stuff.  I wish I didn't have giant honkin' linebacker shoulders - I can't do anything cute to sleeves.  Tongue

After seeing this yesterday, I just happened to score a long sleeved shirt at old navy for .97 and I figured if I screwed it up, it wouldn't be a total loss. The bows came out a little larger than I anticipated, and it seems I attached mine a little lower than you did, but it was very quick and easy. Thanks for the tut!
