My gosh. I actually am in love with all of them. I always say I'll do a tee recon, but never end up making one. Your Threadless recon is so pretty (I almost bought that print a while ago). I love how perfectly the details are sewn (like your killer binding detailing). Any tips on how to go about sewing a t-shirt? I am terrible at free handing anything fitted. Once again, amazing job.

Thanks, everyone! You are all being terribly sweet. =)

Seriously: OMG.

Love love love.

You do fabulous work!  Did you e-mail these to the threadless people?!?!?!  You must.  I think they featured someone on their site who made a quilt from threadless xtras.  They've got to see your awesome work!  If you don't e-mail them, I will (that's a threat and a promise).

Nice job!!!

Wow, thank you!! Aww. I had no idea you could email them about surgeries, though! I posted the photos on my profile there, so someone there reviewed them... but perhaps I'll send them one? Thank you for thinking they're worth the Threadless people looking at. =)

These are all beautiful. I've never tried altering clothing before but I'm thinking of doing so now Cheesy....Can you get these kind of effects with hand stitching out of interest, or does it generally look tacky?

Gorgeous inspiration

Aw, thanks!! You know, I'm a terrible hand-sewer (only buttons and hand basting, haha!) and have never tried it! It would definitely take longer, and with hand sewing (this is stating the obvious here, but...), the smaller the stitches, the better, but I think it's possible! I salute anyone with the patience to even attempt it, because I could never do it. Good luck! ^^

Thank you so much!! ^^ The nicest thing about sewing with t-shirt material is that, because it's stretchy, the fit doesn't have to be perfect! You can lay a tee you already have on top of the tee you want to reconstruct & just trace around it. As long as you have the basic curves & the measurements match up, you're golden.

I have links on another page, but here they are again:

Knits are terribly forgiving, so it's hard to go wrong!!

Never underestimate the power of suggestion.

I am interested in personal swaps for fabric and quilting squares. PM me if you're interested!

These are all amazing, I really wish I could do this.
I have so many threadless shirts I need to reconstruct but every time I do one I mess it up beyond repair, I'm getting to the point that I just want to give someone else my pile of shirts...sad face.

Fantastic reconstructions! I came across this today and decided to give it a try myself, using a Threadless shirt of mine. I messed up the keyhole a little bit but I'm pretty happy with the results. Thanks for the inspiration!

Really nice work. But I don't understand how you get the neckline look so good. Do you use scraps from the tshirts or do you use a woven fabric?
