Upcycling T-Shirts

Ok...I found a FAN-tastic sight this morning...I was looking for ways to Upcycle T-shirts...Jackpot! Craftstylish is the name.

I started with one of hubbie's old white XL the Yoke Neck tutorial...and just stopped after tying off the basting stitches. I also cut the sleeve hems and bottom hem all edges are raw. And no I won't wear this shirt in is just my tester shirt. I do like the fit...and will be great when I am preg easy maternity shirts...this took minutes.

Then I tried it on one of my size medium shirts...and used the seem ripper to take the hem out...(I'm tall I always want more length.) Nice.

Others I am going to try. We have millions of t-shirts...and they are always giving them away at Georgia Tech I can girly them up a bit.

Cardigan will be super cute with a little tank underneath!
