A new wardrobe doesn’t have to cost the earth; all you need is a little imagination (you have buckets of it), scrap fabric (buckets of them, too) and sewing notions to turn your I-Never-Wear-It tee into this season’s most-adored refashion. Lana of Lana Red Studio shows how to make a Spring top by filling the neckline with a host of colourful fabric flowers. She’s created four fabric flower patterns for you to make and use on all your clothes and accessories.

This project was created by Lana for Mollie Makes magazine – for more easy-make craft projects and creative inspiration, subscribe to Mollie or click here to find out more.
