Okay, my brother had alot of clothes he didn't want, so, I begged him to give them to me. With a little snipping, some lace, and my new machine, VIOLA!


Haha. Bad face day. This is basically the strap and the wrist band I made. Smiley


There. Now you can see the whole shirt, + the belt I made. Wow..I didn't know I have arm muscles! hehe


Ah, yes, the pillow approach. You can see the whole shirt, again. It was really simple and I made one more. Everyone at school loved it, and a couple of girls wanted me to make one for them. I had to turn them down..I dont duplicate my designs..well..except for me. Smiley


I got this idea from somewhere..and I'll post where when I remember Smiley

Enjoy! This was my first recon shirt EVER! And my first project with my Kenmore Mini Ultra! (BTW: I am pleased with the machine, but every know and then, when I get really frusterated, I just re-thread it. It is really making me mad that my zig-zag stitch doesn't work! UGH!)

Don't fret! Neither do I.

Adding the belt was an excellent idea. I can't tell, but does your new shirt end about hip level?

Thanks for all of the comments! Yes, I like my shirts long, so this shirt ends about...right above my butt.


Since it was my brother's old shirt, it was a Famous Stars and Straps logo. A company made by the drummer for Blink 182, well..not anymore.
