Courtney from Sweeter Than Cupcakes shares a tutorial over at Project Run and Play showing how to make the twisted pleat detail she used in a 4th of July shirt for her nephew. Made from a striped fabric, it gives the effect of the flag waving in the wind. The technique isn’t limited to flag appliques, either. She used the same twisted pleat technique on shoulders of a t-shirt she made for a Project Run and Play challenge. Get the how-to at Project Run and Play.
