I have very little sewing experience, but I love the idea of reconstructing clothes...I always have, but I get these ideas, and I'm just not sure if it will work, so I chicken out.
Here's what I'm wanting to try, I've seen several people have reconned tees to add a strip of fabric along the sides, but I want to cut a T-shirt up both sides and sew a wedge shape of fabric onto each side to make it an A-line (and to make it bigger around the stomach area). Will this work? I keep trying to imagine how it will look, and I have this horrible image that it will be awful, and I will have ruined 2 perfectly wearable shirts to try it.
No, I haven't tried either. I'll check into it, but please keep the ideas coming. I watch my niece's 3 little ones quite a bit, so kids' craft ideas are welcome too. I'd prefer something that can be used as gifts or sold at craft fairs.
My MIL gave me a huge tub of yarn, and I'm tired of making scarves. That's all I really know how to knit, and I'm not a fan of crocheting. What are some other crafts I can make with yarn? I've tried doing a search here, but it always leads me to the knitting or crocheting forums.
I have more fabric left from the original shirt. How do you think it would look with a ruffle at the bottom to give it some length? I'm not sure how that will look, but as much as I love it, I still haven't worn it because it's shorter than I normally wear. Any other suggestions to lengthen it? I may just go find a longer black t-shirt and start all over.
