I put a little bit of everything in this one.  This is what I'm calling the first prototype, much tweaking to be done.  I am happy with the results from this first try.  I used three t-shirts, chopped them up, and did mucho hand stitching.

Thanks for looking!

Shirt #1 was a size small and made the top, shirts 2 & 3 are XL and made the bottom half (one black, one red).  For the next one, I'll use L instead of the XL.

ahhh i get it.  thanks for explaining.  it was hard to see with them both being black, but i guess that's a good thing: when you would be wearing it, you would want it to look like it was the same fabric...

the beading really makes it extra nice
