Well, I made this about a year ago but I'm getting around to posting it now because I've been out of the country in India for 10 months. So, I have been pretty much out of the craftster loop for quite a while. I hope it still looks nice.
It was previous an ugly green shirt which I basically just shortened the sleeves and added black fabric to and I just patched in a piece of this crazy cool floral fabric from an old pillowcase. Really an easy project.
I hope you like it!

kaia.

I actually cut away the front panel from the t-shirt and used that piece to make a pattern for the pillow case section. I sewed that patch in to where the old part of the t-shirt was.

That looks great! Is it comfortable to wear? I assume the pillow case isn't stretchy...?
