A few weeks ago, I made a felt Ruffle Flower Pillow:

I loved it so much that I decided to use an old tee shirt to make another one using that same pattern. It turned out really well!

I have so many tee shirts that I can use for reconstruction projects! Now what to make next...

Sweet!  Were the gathers hard to do in the t-shirt fabric?

Surprisingly, no! I just loosened the tension on the machine a little and as soon as I started to sew, it started puckering. I still had to pull the thread to even it out, but I found it quite easy!
