Hi everyone! My name is Erika and I blog over on Life Unfluffed and Oops! I Craft my Pants. I’m the new DIY/Crafts contributor on Mother’s Niche, and couldn’t be more happy about it. I am so excited about this opportunity, and can’t wait to get to know each of you a little better. Thanks for having me!
Ever since becoming a mom, I have totally given up on elaborate crafts, and have embraced simple ones that I can whip out during nap time. Or maybe an episode of Mickey Mouse Clubhouse, if I’m being completely honest here. I love the satisfaction of “Hey! I made that”, without having to put in all the time. Maybe I’m just a lazy crafter? I don’t know. You be the judge!
For today’s project, I decided to make a no sew embellished t-shirt.

Since I am living in a temporary house right now, I don’t have my sewing machine or really any other craft supplies with me. So, I wanted to create something with as little as I possibly could.
For this project, I used ribbon, Peel n Stick, and a plain t-shirt.
In hindsight, I wish I would have used a cuter shaped t-shirt to begin with. I just grabbed one at the craft store and it ended up really boxy on my cute girl.
The steps are super simple.
Starting from the back, adhere the end of the ribbon to the shirt with Peel n Stick. I found that cutting little pieces of Peel n Stick and going in about 2 inch sections at a time really helped me make sure everything was all lined up. I also made sure to put the ribbon right under the neckline so that the shirt would still stretch over my daughter’s head.
Once I got back around to where I started, I trimmed my ribbon, folded it over so it wouldn’t fray, and used good ol’ Peel n Stick to adhere it to the back of the shirt, overlapping my beginning point.
Once I was done going around the neck, I decided it was a little too plain for my taste. So, I threw a bow on it.
And, there you have it! Seriously, easiest project ever. My daughter was so excited when I was done because that meant she was able to wear it. I have to say, she’s mastered her “cheese”, wouldn’t you say?
