Have you seen those American Rag tanks at Macy’s? Unfortunately I don’t have a picture, but they were cotton tanks with little crocheted embellishments on the fronts selling for 25 bucks! I couldn’t believe it when I saw it. So I decided to make my own. I bought two tanks at Target (for a total of $15)

and crocheted myself some little circles and knitted a flower. Then sewed them on! Simple and cute! Granted, the only yarn I had that matched was wool, which made my embellishments really thick, but not bad for a first try! I had never crocheted anything before, but I had a wonderful tutorial in the fall 2006 issue of Knitscene. Also, if you’ve never knit flowers before, here‘s a great tutorial as well.
