Day 192 – Some experiments will remain just that. But they still count as creative time, as strange and useless as they may be. (Taken with Instagram)

Day 189 – Altered an XL t-shirt into a bolero. I just cut and tied the sleeves to create the fringe. (Taken with Instagram)

Day 182 – Made a no-sew tank dress for my 7 yr old. One can never have too many tank dresses in the summer. (Taken with Instagram)

Day 4 – Merged and altered t-shirts

This is relatively easy shirt to make as long as you know how to use a sewing machine. I cut off the sleeves of a shirt I never wear, and I found an XXL t-shirt at Goodwill to use as the main body. I sewed the sides and sleeves of the XXL t-shirt to create a tapered fit, then attached the long sleeves so they are extra long. Simple details using embroidery stitches and leftover t-shirt material cover the existing graphic. I also added thumb holes in the extra long sleeves, and then hid the holes with a patch in the same material.

Day 3 – Infinity t-shirt scarf (Taken with instagram)

This is the easiest thing to make.  Take an old t-shirt (XL or bigger) and cut it off below the sleeves. Voila, infinity scarf. Goodwill is a great resource for new or gently used t-shirts.
