Sewing With Knits: 5 Wardrobe Essentials »
InstructionsThree unwanted knit shirts provided me with enough fabric to make two of these t-shirts. Only one has the buttons on the front, though!
Type of item: Clothing
Style: Whimsical, Funky
Three recycled T-shirts from Goodwill
What was your inspiration?
I love recycling! Meg, our instructor said to go out and look for knit fabrics to practice on, and so I went to Goodwill, as there are no good fabric stores near me. I really liked the green stripe fabric in that men's shirt, so I started with that.
What are you most proud of?
How inexpensive the project was, yet I really like the results.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Pick fabrics you like and worry about fitting them together later. I didn't have a piece big enough for the back, so I pieced two fabrics together and then cut that out using the pattern. It's all good!
