I think the little sun we have had today has gone to my head? So I thought I would share with you my Up cycled T-shirt. I shared this with you via the Ali-craft blog last year! How time flies. It is a great t-shirt for the sun (when we get some) and for the holidays.
I started with my hubby's t-shirt and here is what I created:
Firstly get a T shirt modelled here by Stu
Lay the T-shirt on a flat surface and cut off the collar band
Cut the lined area out
Next cut off the sleeves
With one sleeve cut like shown below
Then cut as below to create a straight piece
With the straight piece, you need to fold and pin
Hold the back of the T-shirt to create the racer back, on this you will be adding the folded, sew strip
Cut the excess off and fold the added sewn part the right way round so the outer ring/ back is smooth and all sewn parts are hidden. Then you have done it is so simple with great results!!! TADA!!!
I love wearing it and hope it has inspired you? It is a very quick sew
