I have a bunch of old graphic shirts that have really cute designs on them, but I don't wear anymore cause they have pitstains... i just moved from an area that's really hot and humid and sweaty and gross, so it's not a big deal to the people down there... but up here I get weird looks  Embarrassed understandably so! if it wasn't the norm down there I would have been giving people faces too.

They're still good, though! I'm sure if I knew how to do something with it I could fix em up.

I've seen some awesome recons that i'd like to try, but they all seem a bit out of my league... I'm pretty bad when it comes to sewing, i'm more of a draw and paint kind of "artist"...

I figured I'd ask crafters instead of just walking into a situation where i'd be destroying some of my clothes,
what are some nice "beginner" recons?

here's a pic of what sort of thing i'm talkin about xDD


if this is in the wrong forum i'm sorry!! x__x forgive me
