Thanks to robotsrock for the great tutorial.  It was very clear and easy to understand.  I had to make the main part of the shirt a little smaller.  I used a pillowcase from the as-is bin at Ikea which was about $1.

I love that shirt!  I am so bummed I can't sew. Every time I see personalized/one-of-a-kind clothing on craftster, I kick myself for not taking home ec in high school!  Sadly, I don't know where I could take classes here, and don't have anyone who could teach me close by....  Cry

Padray, don't let your sewless past determine your crafty future.  You can pick up a cheap machine at a yard sale or buy a cheap one from wal-mart, if you're here in the US.  Step two - library.  There are usually a lot of books on sewing available in the crafts section.  Sewing is so fun and very rewarding.  It is really not hard at all to start.  My husband is a contractor and had to go do and estimate tonight.  While he was gone, two hours, I cut out and sewed a skirt.  When he got home he asked me what I had been up to.  I said that I hadn't been up to much, just made a skirt.  He had to see it to believe it.  I literally took me like an hour, total (that's including cleaning up scraps from cutting and putting everything back up.)  So, get a book, learn how to thread a machine, buy some cheapo fabric and a pattern on sale and go to it.  By the way, if you don't want to buy a machine, you can rent one from a sewing machine dealer (you might have to call more than one) to see if you think you might like it or not.  Happy Sewing!

Thanks, bamabee!  Ha, I work at a branch of our local library!  I guess I just assumed the sewing books we have wouldn't teach me the basics, like how to thread the machine...?  Undecided  I really know nothing about them.  I've never even touched one.  And I think my mom still has one, or at least the one she used to have had a foot pedal... what's with that?  Shocked  Grin

Lol!  I use my grandma's sewing machine that she got in the 70's (I think).  It's the one I learned on and it still works great.  (Better than my own in fact!)
