On the Banks of Squaw Creek: Refashions

I knew I wanted to refashion them somehow, so I’ve been browsing for inspiration. Here are some of my faves that seem do-able with my limited sewing skills. Made by Lex: Little Birdie Secrets: Ruffles and Roses Crafterhours: Crafterhours: Tee to Tank: A Tutorial by Jen from Upcycled Education. This is one of my favorite t-shirt refashions of all time.

crafterhours: Tee to Tank: A Tutorial by Jen from Upcycled Education

For a number of reasons. First, let me tell you that this t-shirt to tank refashion wasn’t my idea. Jen posted this on her facebook page and I jumped at the chance to have a crafty morning with her and watch her make it. Jen blogs at Upcycled Education– a blog I recommend you peruse, especially if you’re an educator– formally or informally. She’s full of good ideas and fun finds and her enthusiasm is catchy. Second, it is soooo quick and easy that it takes less than half an hour. Third, it uses tees you probably already have a million of and don’t enjoy the fit of but have a hard time discarding.

Skirts. T-Shirt Dress - Martha Stewart Kids' Crafts. Empire Cut Blouse. Empire cut Blouse, T-Shirt reconstruction with Tutorial I’ve been fascinated with all the T shirt reconstruction I’ve seen around, so yesterday, I was bored and decided to make my own reconstruction..

Empire Cut Blouse

I had a big t shirt (it was my mom’s) I trace it and start cutting… This is how it looks like, I can’t wear tight T-shirts, very often I get stomach inflammation because thanks to digestive problems, and sometimes I look like I’m 4 months pregnant, so this blouse is perfect for those days. Of course I need to perfection it but it wasn’t that bad for my first attempt, what do you think? Well I thought I made a tutorial of how I made it.. please bear with me since English is not my first language, and if something needs corrections or do you need more explanation please let me know, this will also be my first tutorial.

Some of the patterns that I link to are charity patterns, and they ask that if you use them for personal use, that you make an extra and give it to a charity. I think that's a lovely thought, and encourage everyone to do so. Return to Another Family Spot Links about Judaism for kids Credits for graphics and webrings Like the page?
