Well, it's September and...let's just say the closet is a work in progress. Some of the things that are taking up space in the closet are shirts that I never wear anymore. I realized I could repurpose them into something else! Here are some tutorials for recycling shirts:

Pretty Little Petals [Free Pattern] Strictly speaking, this post was intended to be the "Part Two" section of the Granny Oblong saga.
