Well, we had our first snow here yesterday. So I crafted up a storm with my (still overflowing) t-shirt box. I made these five lovelies:

First up is this baseball/ kimono top:

I used piping for the first time (loved it!) and used multi-colored rick rack for a little tie. The shirt says "Eagan," which is a suburb of the Twin Cities, MinneSNOWta. The back says 26... would have been cooler if it was 28, my age, but I like it anyway.

Next I made this little shrug from a tee scrap, most of which I had used for another project. But I still had the main graphic, which I put on the back, and added some sweet lace to balance the toughness of "Jersey":

Popping the collar and apparently how I think New Jerseyites act. The shirt says, "New Jersey: Vacationland of the Future," and there's a picture of a nuclear waste dump/ factory. This makes me giggle.

This one is actually a recon of a previous recon I did and wasn't super happy with:


After, with overcaffeination. It's now a faux wrap with some fat panels added Smiley

For my last endeavor, I took these four shirts (I made the one in the top right corner from a 70s pattern, when people were super skinny and wore midriffs. It didn't work for me):

And made two new ones!

My "go-to" pose, apparently. I feel very 90s in this one, ala Sue Ellen Crandell in "Don't Tell Mom the Babysitter's Dead."

And just for fun, here it is with a yellow belt and some dancing (Digitata came on the stereo; I had to.)

Thanks for looking! I anticipate at least two more phases until the box is reasonable again.

Awesome!  I love the last dress with a belt - it looks sooo good on you! Love teh pink polka dots on the reconned-recon. 
And your Jersey attitude made me giggle. Smiley

Ask a Gentern who they prefer, ten out of nine will say "The Pavi!" <3 Oghr!
