i've been a big admirer of much of the work i've seen on these boards, but never had the courage to post any of the projects i'm working on. i'm not much of a seamstress but i'm creative, so most of my tshirt recons have had little or no sewing. (hurray for iron-on hem, eyelets and hot glue!!! Grin)
every year that my bagpipe band has gotten a shirt for our st.patty's day gig at the local pub, i've modified it to suit my taste. (i'm the only female piper.) the other pipers may think that i'm just one of the guys, but i don't think i have to LOOK like one of the guys.
so here's my shirt for this year. i don't have a before picture, but it was a regular MED crew neck shirt. i'm new with posting pics, so i hope this works. its in the craftster member galleries. i hope you like it. any feedback would be appreciated  Smiley

you get about 483678858+ points for being in a bagpipe band. and another 50 for being the only female piper. it looks really cute, simple with nice details. and welcome to craftster (post-wise, at least)!

thanks! its fun being in a pipe band, but even more fun to come up with new ways every year, of changing it up a bit. Grin
