a very nice neighbor/fellow craftster let me borrow her sewing machine, and the first day I made this! Cheesy




*please ignore Miss Wannabe-America's-Next-Top-Model on the far left.*

It's made from an XL men's undershirt. I cut a band off the bottom and made it about 4 inches smaller, sewed it back on the shirt, cut the sleeves off, sewed the bottom of the sleeve hole so you couldn't see my goodies(Lips sealed), then tie dyed it to cover sweat stains! Cheesy woop.





and this isn't a tshirt.. anymore. :p

scarfy thing, it's too hot to wear now.. but whatever. I saw a few people make them the past couple weeks and decided to join them. It'll come in handy for fall/winter. Grin I made another one, but I don't feel like uploading the picture Roll Eyes It's skinnier/loopier than this one because I cut the strips thinner.

I just did Cheesy I'm excited now. Now I just have to wait until he gets out of the house to start sewing it Tongue!

Ohh okay! I'll stick to the nude bra. I've never dyed anything, and I'm afraid I'll ruin it if I try. haha.

And, how did you make that cool scarf thingy with a tshirt? It's really cute! It's of course... way too hot to wear them here... but it's cute anyway. Hahaha.

tut here: http://www.instructables.com/id/Recycled-T-shirt-Necklace/

and dying is easy, especially tie-dye. Just buy the kit, put some water in the squirt bottles, ball up your shirt and squirt! There's videos on youtube if you need help though, I did at first. Wink You might not even have to if your brother's shirt is stain free + thick enough you can't see through it.

When you're done I want to see pictures! Cheesy
