So, my ex of a year dumped me out of the blue for NO APPARENT REASON. (Which I'm still angry about.)
He gave me a ton of clothes while we dated, and let me 'borrow' some of his. (He's not getting them back. HA!)

I'm totally stuck on this shirt that he gave me, though.
I think it's really, really stupid, so I never wore it.



I want to make it into something rad and wear-able.

Advice?
(I've looked at some t-shirt recons, but I just don't like any of them.)

If you sew, you could always make pincushions out of the smiley lil cherry faces. Little pins sticking out of them - some nice relaxing relationship voodoo! Smiley

I second the pin cushion idea (but what can i say I'm spiteful).

I say cut out the cherries and applique them onto something, anything, like a bag or something.  The image is cute but I can't say I would have worn the shirt either.

Hey...

I would probably get a second t shirt that goes nicely with this one and cut a pair of sleeves out of it...

Get 'something else' that would make nice trim and make a hood and cuffs...

Cut the cherry shirt up the middle, sew on the hood and the sleeves and the cuffs...

If you have enough of the 'something else' use it to trim the centre front opening and add a zipper or some snaps or you could use pre-made snap tape... You could EVEN make that centre cut at an angle. That way it won't interfere with the design at all.

You might end up with a really cute hoodie

Rock On
