Well see... I have this stuffed cocodile I've had since I was 2 or 3 named lyle (yes... I do still sleep with him...lol) *ilovehimsomuch* So I found this shirt like three years ago... wore it like twice and then my mom went to wash it and... horror of all horrors... got a bleach stain on it... Sad so now that I've become confidant in sewing clothes back together I decided to make something of it so I could actually wear it!! YAY!!!

I forgot to mention b4, that I used Mezzi's tute for inspiration -http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=100217.0

Pink Sugary Hoodie: (i used the back of the shirt to make the new front! bleach stain free!!)

I feel like I should live in candyland Cheesy

I love the back so much!

Pocket detail... sorry it's a lil' blurry... the toothbrush on the sleeve was too cute to not incorperate it... plus I added the striped heart Cheesy


Heres the Before just so you know: (with sad sad bleach stain...)

I used two other shirts from Goodwill to finish the project Cheesy


Heres the link to see it full sized http://www.craftster.org/forum/imagecache/cache/Thumb_KXAAfa
(oh I forgot... I added a trim to my hoodie... I took leftover fabric from shirt A and sewed it to the hood like I sewed the trim on the pocket, 'cept I measured it out so there was no extra fabric to be folded over Cheesy)

plus as an added bonus... I finally tamed my wild mane of hair... lol Cheesy
I have to say this shirt is by far my favorite that I have made Cheesy

That is very cute - in fact this is the first time I've been moved to post about a t-shirt recon. Adorable and a great job of saving something you love.

You did a really great job with that! I like the pink and the green together. Way to save a ruined shirt.
