I have a category on Pinterest set up as clothing crafts. Which is a little crazy since I really don't sew. I mean, I know how, I suppose. But, I don't have much patience and I'll never sew as well as my mother so...
Anyway, last weekend I was feeling especially crafty and pulled out my old black Singer Featherweight sewing machine. I set up the antique machine right in front of my computer monitor so I could scan Pinterest while sewing. It was really pretty interesting seeing the old and new next to each other.
I decided I wanted to try to make something out of t-shirts. I looked in our give aways, and asked hubby if he had any old t-shirts and found 3 red shirts. I made this skirt. It is a fine line between cute and a hot mess.
But, wait there's more. I was on a roll. So, I decided to rip apart an old boxy bulky pullover sweater. I cut it down the front, cut off the mock turtleneck, and cut the sleeves to my elbows. Then, I hemmed everything. I didn't know how it would work being a knitted sweater. I haven't washed it yet but it lasted through a day of wearing it. Last of all, I held it together with an antique broach.
