Tutorial [Shirt Repurposing]. . .


I was inspired by Jessica over at A Few of My Favorite Things
to make this shirt knock-off:


[And yes, I did get a haircut. Thanks for noticing :]

I bought two shirts from the Dollar Tree:
An XS mint green tee and an XXXL white tee for parts.

I shortened the sleeves of the mint shirt a few inches and scooped the neck a little, and chopped up the white shirt into the shape of a large washer.

Then I pinned the white O shape around the neckline of the green shirt
[strategically bunching it here and there]
and sewed a few times around the whole thing.

Add some fun buttons, and you've got yourself a lovely summer tee
[all for the fabulous price of $2!]



I'm linking to these parties.

A darling "two buck tee"! Would never guess it only cost that much. Great job.

You are so cute and talented. Love what you do. Your headbands are so nice. I can't wear headbands....they slide up and make me look like a mushroom BUT yours are so soft and stay in place. Love the haircut.

This is great! And cracking me up, because I also bought a shirt once at Dollar Tree. I am very proud of myself for finding a shirt at Dollar Tree, although it has a mysterious stain on it that may or may not have always been there... keep up the good work madam! I want to see some neckties! ;)
