My first post on the clothing recon board. Some simple projects but I'm happy with them.


Some tank top vests. The first was made as a way to salvage a favourite tank that got a rip in it (no before pics sorry).

I simple cut the tank accros at the rip (oddly, it ripped in a straight horizontal line. Then I cut up the BACK of the tank, turning it into the front and using the design as the back. I cut a curved shape on each side of the front of the vest and I was finished.

The second vest uses a tank that had a lace design in the back. The V at the front was deep enough so I simple cut straight up the middle to make this vest. It sits longer, but I like that look.

Some simple fingerless gloves made using the sleeves from this project:

I simply cut the sleeves off the felted jumper to the desired length then handsewed two lines of stitiching, one the the edge of the hand, and one at the edge of the thumb, then I carefully cut between the two lines of stitched the seperate the thumb and turned the whole thing inside out.

Hope you guys like them!


I have decided that the hokey pokey is what it's all about.
