It's rainy and cold and I have a touch of SAD so I stay inside and sew and cut on days like this.  I've been on a recon binge lately so I did more. 

The first is a sweatshirt I found 4 years ago at my nerd camp.  I posted it on the lost & found board but no one claimed it so at the end of our session I got to take it home.  I still feel kinda bad that someone lost their sweatshirt but it was serendipitous for me since it fits perfectly.  But it's summer.  Not hoodie weather at all!  So I went to my closet and pulled out this old sweatshirt I never wear anymore and cut off the sleeves.  Then I thought "Hmm, what can I do to make this even cooler?Huh"  and I got it!  An old pajama tank top I had in 8th grade with a Groovy Fish!  So I cut it out and appliqued it on.  Thanks for sticking with me through all that, here are the pictures!

Second, my Rolling Stones tee.  This one was a gift from a friend who could no longer wear it, so I didn't want to do too much.  I definitely didn't want to touch the tongue.  So I cut out the neck, and cut more, and cut again, until it could be worn multiple ways.  Off one shoulder, off both shoulders, on both shoulders, sleeves rolled up, and sleeves tied (which I didn't get a picture of).  I also have A LOT of leftover fabric so I may resize it later.

How much extra fabric!

Third, my Rockin Snoopy shirt!  This one I've also had forever and decided to cut out the neck and remove the too tight sleeves, and then make it one shouldered!  Yay!
(sorry for the awful picture, it did NOT wanna photograph)

Wish on everything.

Sometimes the questions are sophisticated and the answers are simple.
