***Note! I recently simplified and tweaked my tshirt drafting process, and have a new tutorial for drafting a tee from measurements that is a little more user friendly. Both are good methods, though, so check out my new one, and decide from there! Thanks for stopping by, and like always I love to get feedback or questions! There have been a few people who have asked me for my t-shirt pattern. “Sure!”
Image: flickr Do you have have tonnes of old baggy t-shirts crowding out your wardrobe and not sure what to do with them? Chopping them up and reconstructing them into funky, sexy and hip clothing is hot right now. Often called t-shirt mashups, t-shirt surgery, or t-shirt refashioning, whatever its called we love it. TreeHugger has previously discussed SuperNaturale's t-shirts to underwear and looked at t-shirts to bags and of course the t-shirt to swimsuit , what else can you do with a t-shirt and how and where do you find out?

March 15, 2010 10:22 am Happy Monday! Here’s a quick little tank you can easily do! I’m still taking requests for the Anthropologie tutorial series, but I thought I’d do a little something in between. I was inspired by this shirt from Anthropologie: And this is how my version came out:
Hi Thirty Handmade Days Readers! I am thrilled to be over here today. This is one of my favorite blogs and I am tickled to be a part of it today. Normally I can be found over at my blog Just Another Day in Paradise. My little spot in blogland to create, craft, cook, and all together go crazy. I am the momma to three Little Men, so when I am not creating I am cleaning up dirt, toys, diapers, and food.
Last week I showed you the top I made for my MIL’s B-day, remember ? Well today is My Mom’s B-day! So Feliz Cumpleaños Mamá!! And as part of the celebration, I will show you how to make this top!
Well, hello fellow craft addicts! I’m thrilled to be visiting over here in Linda’s lovely space. I’m from over at the Crafty Cupboard , where I like to share my fun projects.
For the last year, I have been looking for a petticoat- I know this might sound a little strange but I wanted something frilly and white to go under my skirts or even be worn as a skirt and to pair with my extensive collection of knee high boots! I had a very specific "vision" of what I wanted in my head and finally gave up my search and decided it was time to just make one for myself (like everything else-if I can't afford it or find it- I MAKE IT!). Since I didn't have a pattern, I made my own from an old skirt.

WOO HOO! Call me a big nerd but my heart's pounding because i'm so excited and honored to be here!!! my name is Sarah and i keep a blog over at Welcome to the gOOd life . it's a diary written by me (and sometimes by my hilarious husband) of the good and the ugly as a wife, a stay at home mom, raising two kids under three-just a year apart, and also my weekly DIY sewing projects.
Recylcled from a T-Shirt Hey guys! So yeah I had this really ugly T-shirt that I never wore and I kept wondering what the hell I can do with it so I remember once being in the store stradivarius and trying on this awesome tube top but of course it was the last one they had and I did not have money on me. So I got the inspiration from the awesome tube top, you can check it here: http://www.stradivarius.es/en/collection/tops/detalle/1104_bandeau-bow-top- Since I just used a normal size (well I mean my size )I couldn't make it look like the exact same one as on the picture as I didn't have that much fabric left. and yeah I hope you'll enjoy this project.
Fill in the blanks and follow the directions to create your own waist-length princess seamed bodice! I have done something amazing! I have used Excel to create a princess seamed bodice pattern generator, and I'm letting anyone and everyone use it! You won't be able to change anything but the purple cells (to keep mean people from stealing it), but those are the only ones you need to be able to mess with.
