Well, actually I used half of the pillowcase to make the front of the shirt. It's a Barney one from when I was a wee girl and obsessed with Barney xD. The back of the shirt is made from the matching sheets to the pillowcase. Sorry, I forgot to rotate all the pics, so they're sideways haha.




The floopy thing you see in the back is just the bow tied from the belty thing just bellow my boobs. It's actually not attached to the shirt, just tied around me. Ignore the wrinkles, the iron and ironing board are in my sleeping momma's room. Gosh, parents and their early sleeping habits!

Here's The Zipper:

The right side of the photo is the top of the shirt. This was my first time using a sewing machine, and my first time installing a zipper, so it ended up a little crooked but meh, it still works right? :]

I'm really proud of it, even though it's a little bit suffocating, and I pricked myself quite a bit when I was pinning fabrics together, but it was all worth it. And sewing isn't as hard as I thought it would be, I'm definitely going to sew some more things... oh, and even though there's only four pics, I just wanted to say gluttoned in the title.  Grin

Haha, I had that same pillow when I was a little kid. xD

Good job for your first time with a zipper AND a sewing machine. =D

Barney has a special place in my heart. My toddler is SOOOOO into him right now!

Awh, it is so adorable!  Great job on the zipper for being your first time sewing (I broke 3 needles trying to get my first zipper in and was more than just a little crooked).

Thanks for the comments everybody! I also happened to break my first needle also, but it was a good learning experience Tongue

I have to say that I am no fan of Barney, but I love that you made the shirt out of a favorite pillowcase. And did a great job of it too! Cheesy
