Sewing Project 10
I slipped on an orange t-shirt this morning to run the kids to school. I've been meaning to get rid of it for some time now, with that grey mystery stain front and center. As I took it off, I remembered some posts of other seamstresses who take old shirts, table cloths, bed linens, and handkerchiefs to reuse, remake for another project. Since I had such fun with that elasticized bobbin thread, I decided to have another go at it. This is what I came up with, a tunic for Azure, and only one sleeve left over from my previous shirt.

Why do we all have those t-shirts with mystery stains? I have, like, 4.ReplyDelete
I like the flower. You have a way with creating flowers.

my first thought: that's SO adorable (accessories and all)!
my next thought: that was an old t-shirt?!
wow. just, wow.
this (along with the blessing dress, and the cupcake skirt) is my favourite of your sewing projects, it is amazing how with 5 daughters you find the time and they are all so amazingly done, you have inspired me to get back in touch with my love of textiles that since i started my exams has lapsed and it is entirely your fault that soon i shall be the proud first time owner of a sewing machine! thanks for sharing the love!ReplyDelete
Good for you, madsta! What do you plan on purchasing?ReplyDelete
It is time for you to change your heading to "Kind of a BIG Dill."ReplyDelete
well that is where i am a little stuck! i have consulted a few family friends and my grandma and we are having a little think, i am a sewing machine novice, i can use one though i have just never owned one, do u have any suggestions?ReplyDelete
Katy, that is just adorable.ReplyDelete
so that was done in less than a day? You're amazing. Just thinking about any sort of sewing project takes me that long--usually much longer. I'm trying to get something sewn for sewing month. We'll see though.ReplyDelete
oh, and I love the orange, by the way. It's lovely.
It's so lovely! I love the pin in the flower, it's a great touch.ReplyDelete
Jessica, you make me laugh. Kind of a BIG Dill. I like that.ReplyDelete
Madsta, Check out a Bernina dealership for sure. Even if you buy a used one, Bernina's are my very favorite sewing machine. Then, take classes, even if you know how to work a sewing machine, they teach you about how to care for it, all the different presser feet and what they do. It's a great refresher for anyone. Let me know what you decide on!
Oh, and Ginna, what you do is overlap your thinking on one project with your working on another. Much more efficient. You're so funny. Yes, I made that while my sick kids home from school watched Little Lulu.ReplyDelete
From T-shirt to T-errific!ReplyDelete
thankyou! i had a look and now we are looking at different models! we are also looking at classes you are an angel for your help! when i get to grips with it (we're talking months!) i will link you to my first made thing!ReplyDelete
This is so cute! I am sure your girls love it when you sew them such cute clothes. I've also seen some blogs where they use old clothes and make new things out of them. I really want to try it.ReplyDelete
I love the flower clip and on the shirt, so darling!ReplyDelete
Taking trash and turning it into a treasure? You truly make the world a better place.ReplyDelete
So very exciting, Madsta! Can't wait to see your first project.ReplyDelete
Oh MY I am so impressed by this one. I am officially adding you to my reader list now. I used to sew all the time. My machine has been dusty for a while due to 5 kids and a deployed husband but you have inspired me! Thankssss!ReplyDelete
PS how did you do that?
So cute. Looks just like a Chasing Fireflies dress I saw in their catalog.ReplyDelete
