Purple sharpie on a blue shirt!

This shirt required a lot more work than visible. It was like a 4x and i got it at a garage sale for 50 cents, and I couldn't resist. It's a really nice shirt, but it was freyed at all of the seams, collar and hems. it was really wrinkled and unpressed, and some of the buttons were missing. I took it in because I thought I could scrap it and use it for something. When I got it back, I remembered I didn't have a thing to wear to Temple that night, so I sewed up the seams, and took int the sides by cutting off a lot of fabric and sewing the seams again, replaced all the buttons with these nice round dress shirt buttons, and drew the symbol of a Chai on it, which is two hebrew letters Hey and Yud, they mean 'Life' or 'To Life' in Hebrew. I love the symbol Chai because it represents my family's connection to Judaism and G-d. My connection is a little more apparent since I'm training to be a Rabbi, but that is a story for another day...

All my stuff is handsewn as I do not have a sewing machine. It takes a while, be gentle.



Thanks for looking and I love comments!

That looks pretty cool. Salvaging stuff is always fun. What kind of fabric is the shirt?

Stop being so damned positive. Staring at the sun only blinds some one. By only looking at the positive, you miss an entire beautiful world of shadows and colors. Don't be overly negative, be realistic. The world is so much more complex and beautiful that way.
