i just got a bunch of free (yay) scarves, and one of them is sheer white fabric that says "i love jesus" in gold all over it.  i'm not religious, but i really want to use the fabric for something good, possibly a shirt. i have about 2' by 5'7" of it. any ideas?

EDIT: houston, we now have a pic...

Oooh, a big pirate-y shirt would look fantastic in this...think Vivienne Westwood, with lots of ties and/or shredded edges, kinda falling a bit off one shoulder maybe? As it's sheer you could wear it over a really fitted white tank or beater...hmmm, I'll have to see if I can come up with anything else....

Here are a few suggestions to change to appearance of the fabric:

    You could ruche (gather) it or pleat it.

    Try bleaching a small piece.  Since we don't know what the fabric is made of, it's hard to predict what would happen.

    overdye with a deep color before or after you do one of these things.

    Take rows of tucks through the printed sections.

    Work out a way to cut it into strips or squares, then sew together in a different order, for pieced fabric.

   Applique something else over the design.

   Cut it into strips, weave them together.  (Pay attention to whether it ravels - you may have to hem each strip or zig-zag the edges.)

After you've altered the fabric, then make your shirt.

ha ha ha ha! that was one of my first ideas!

LRS, I love the idea of piecing the fabric together all crazy-like.  it'll be hard to do, cuz its kinda an organza but thinner and more sheer (sorry, im not good with fabrics yet) and it frays, but i think that may be the kicker in anything i do with it, and ur ideas rock
