Sew, What's New?

Curating sewing and quilting talent, techniques, and tutorials, since 1997.

Bought a yellow tee at Goodwill and also a well worn brown one that had these pretty butterflies on it. I cut around the butterfly pic and appliqued it to the yellow tee. I cut off the neck band, and the sleeves, and weaved strips of the brown tee around the edges. Kristin loves it!

Thanks to all of you for your comments! You are all so sweet! I can only say that I have completely fallen in love with repurposing tee shirts.! I plan a trip to the thrift store again tomorrow morning. I can't stay now! I, too, love the butterflies, and I think it's pretty the contrast between the brown and yellow and how the brown just "pops" off of the yellow! I absolutely DO NOT mind if someone copies what I made. I got the idea from out of this old brain of mine (it can still perform sometimes!! LOL), and I consider it an honor that someone would want to make something like I did because they also liked it. Thanks again everyone! You inspire me to make more and more and more!!!!!

Very nice! I'm so into t-shirt recons. I have to make this next on my list ( if you don't mind) it is such a great idea! You would pay a lot of money for a t-shirt like this in a boutique somewhere. :) Thanks for sharing!
