Those shirts look great! You are extremly talented Smiley But i have one lil question, how do you make the tubes for the top and bottom part of the shirt?

 what Im calling a tube .. other people may call something else .. I dont know .. But what I mean is make a long strip 2 times as thick as you want the band .. and then just fold  it over and pin/sew .. it will make a sort of tube .. or channel that you would put elastic through if it were say a waist band on some pants ... but in this case you leave it hallow ... I hope that makes since

 thanks again guys .. I will let you know that since i made this shirt .. It was accidently shrunk .. just in the legnth of the sleeves so I had to trim ithem to 3/4thlegnth .. its still cute .. but I lost the fun grey cuffs .. so a quick qord of WARNING : ! Its ALWAYS WORTH IT TO PRE SHRINK /WASH KNITS .. JUST INCASE  .. I learned my leasson the hard way ..
 have a good one

Cool idea for boring t-shirts.
Not to say that the graphics on Safe Lunch are boring.
They make me giggle like the immature kid that I am Smiley

Beginning of school year resolutions: Granny-square blanket, scarf for the man, swimsuit bottoms, better organization for crafting supplies, computer case of some kind, 2 amigurumi and a pair of underwear.
