I posted in the stenciling board a couple days ago.
Upset that I couldn't post pics until my 10th post, I decided to get crafting!
so this is #2, please visit links to pictures....

I have a tshirt addiction. I like to buy anything that I deem "quirky" from garage sales, or resale shops. I have piles and piles... I mean I don't think I'll be on Hoarders anytime soon, but it is definitely more than a collection.

anyhooo...
I finally got around to reconning one.
it was a men's large Speed Racer (the old school cartoon, not the movie) tee.


I created a pattern from one of my daughters tops,
added a ruffle at the bottom,
and now its a cute dress!


I am super proud because its my first real recon, first ruffle, and first self drafted pattern!
comments and suggestions encouraged Smiley Smiley

Super duper cute! You did an awesome job!
I know how it is not being allowed to post pics - it's frustrating!
I, too, need to start crafting more! 10 posts, here I come!

That is super adorable! My boys have tons of shirts that don't fit them anymore, and I really want to try reconning them into something for my daughter. I'm afraid of messing up the shirts though, hopefully I'll have the nerve to cut into one soon. Great job!
