What are you most proud of? That it turned out pretty nice! That was my first inside zipper, the stitching is wonky but I DID IT! :)

What advice would you give someone starting this project? I had trouble sewing around the magnetic snaps... I didn't leave enough room to sew the top shut! WAH! Trial and error!!! Try to salvage as much as you can! Upcycling is the new BLACK! :) Have fun!

Love this! Have you seen my wine bottle gift bags made from the man's shirt sleeves? Well, I took the rest of the shirt and made it into a dress for a girl size 6!!

Thanks! I have to go check! That is awesome! Isn't upcycling the best? It feels so good to refashion an unloved piece of clothing and turn it into something that everyone loves!
