I'd like for the neckline and sleeves to stretch a bit. I guess I can't do ribbing or binding... I don't know how, at least. I had planned on just doing a rolled hem, but would that look weird on a t-shirt?
3  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Turtle Neck to T-Shirt on: February 21, 2010 11:39:20 AM
I have a turtle neck that I want to make into a t-shirt. Seems like it should be easy enough, because all I want to do is cut of the sleeves and give it a scoop neck. My question is, what kind of stitch should I use for the neckline and sleeves? I asked my mother, and she said I wouldn't be able to do it without a serger... But would a zigzag stitch work? I've read a few t-shirt alteration tutorials, and haven't really seen anything about what stitch to use. Any help would be appreciated, as well as any other general advice you could offer about t-shirt alterations. Thanks!

Started with an adorable hardback book from Goodwill.

It had illustrations which I ripped out before I started cutting...

Now it's a box!

Action shot!

I used this tutorial:

I made one change, though. My knife started to get dull so the edges were messy. I decoupaged the cut out pages on the inside of the box to cover up my mess.

I want to arrange a live trade session with some people I go to school with, and I'm not sure where to start. I was wondering if anyone who's either hosted or been to live trades had any advice for me. I think only one or two people that I'm inviting are familiar with ATCs, and I've never done a swap/trade myself.

Coin purses would be cute. You could also do wallets, shopping bags, clutches, etc.

You could paint some black silhouettes on it. If you did birds or trees or something, it'd look more modern. A woman's profile would make it look sort of victorian.

Good idea! They do pop out. I thought I might try to find some buttons that look like those old fashioned glass door knobs.

Here's some pictures. It's about ten inches tall.


As for style... I'd like this to look sort of antique-y, but with a twist, maybe sort of steampunk. Any suggestions would be appreciated!
