In my recent personal swap with iampoison, she noted that she enjoyed all things Happy Berry (the logo of a clothing line in Ai Yazawa's manga, Paradise Kiss--I love making things out of it!). So I made her a tube top. I cut off the top and sleeves of a XL green turtleneck, then pinned it to a guesstimated size, proceeded to sew up the sides. Then I cut out part of a maroon night T-shirt to fit the bottom of the green tube. Using fabric from a maroon silk skirt, two fabric squares, and a bed sheet, I was able to hand stitch the Happy Berry appliqué on (I am proud of this):



As well, she mentions in one of her Livejournal entries that she likes Invader Zim, so I cut out the designs from the front and back and sewed them together, leaving a corner open so that I could flip it right-side out and stuff it (it's so soft!):





Pretty simplistic, this pillow was, so get at it! Transform all of those old T-shirts into pillows!

Thanks,
Joa

The connotations wearing my nerves thin
Could it be semantics generating the mess we're in?
I understand that language breeds stereotype
But what's the explanation for the malice, for the spite?
