can i just say, that i almost had a heart attack when i was looking at your post because....I HAVE THE SAME SHIRT!!!! i got it at value village in september, and i made it into some wide necked tshirt (but i turned it inside out)
hey, i'm not sure what felting means, but when i cut apart old sweaters, if i know the pattern, i zig zag stitch around where i'm going to cut, along where my seam allowance will be, does that make sense? so that it all sticks together when you cut it out, but the zig zag stitch will disappear into the hem.
ok, i tried to make the tshirt underwear, but i couldn't get it to fit properly (one leg hole was too small and the other one was too big) and i wasn't sure how to sew the elastic in. would you be able to give a quick tutorial? i am in dire need of some underwear. i found that making the pattern from my existing underwear didn't work too well, maybe i need to actually measure. but because the fabric is not elasticy, i'm not sure to make the pattern bigger or smaller. suggestions?
The best place to get old books, clothes, bags, and records for CHEAP is Goodwill's Buy the Pound. Clothing is $2 a pound, records are 50 cents, purses are 1-3 dollars and the same for shoes, and really cheap books. It's located at Jarvis and Richmond, or Jarvis and Adelaide. It's dirty, and you have to sort through bins of dusty stuff, but for the price, and the goodies, it's worth it.
oooh garage sales....the best stuff i've found were:
-a motley crue tshirt for $1 -a cameo style necklace with a picture of a MOUNTIE in full red gear and horse on it for $2 -old milk bottles -some cocktail toothpicks with little plastic people having sex on the ends of them for 50 cents (straight, gay and lesbian couples)
