If only I could. But every now and then I get sucked into it.
If you sew, you know just how many absolutely gorgeous fabulous creative bright shiny fresh interesting lovely stunning fabric-savvy darling sweet edgy smart…whew…IDEAS are on that site.
I am helpless to resist.
So this little t-shirt project was inspired by one of the ideas I saw there at some point, and I wish I could credit the original poster. But that’s the thing about pinterest. You click on something, then on another thing, and before you know it you are down the rabbit hole somewhere on a blog, mixing all the ideas together.
So, for the record, I bought several of these cheap tees to use at a class for embroidery positioning. The students used them in the class and now I have them left over and I was wondering what else I could do with them. Here’s the upcycle idea:
Just a plain tee to start, but it gets cut up into a shrug-type garment.
In the summer, I think it will look cute over a tank or tee. Not bad for the $5 or so that I paid for it.
In the meantime, I’ll be shielding my eyes from the inevitable lure of pinterest.
For the moment.
