I bought this tank for cheap from Target and spruced it up with some appliques made from cheap pillowcases I got from the thrift store (about 25 cents each). The stars and skull are stiffened with super strong interfacing, and they were a real pain to sew on to the wimpy and stretchy tank fabric. I'm happy with how they turned out though, it's a gift for my little sister who is turning 11.

I think it looks great! I like the colors - punky but still childish enough for an eleven year old. The only suggestion I would make is to add some eyesockets- it was a little difficult to tell straight off that it's a skull. But other than that, it looks gorgeous, and I love the vintage fabric.

I grew up with a couch and love seat and chair cusions made from the green pattern you're using for the stars.
This was when I lived at home in 1981, brings back alot of memories.

The patterns you've used are beautiful, especially the one for the skull.  They look so pretty against the black ^_^

Very cool! I would've had to sew them by hand for sure! Did you use interfacing?

Thanks for all the compliments! I did have to use interfacing for these guys, or else it would have been totally impossible to keep them on the shirt while I was sewing. I was thinking if I make something like this again, maybe some colorful buttons would work well as eyesockets...
