Before we moved, Denise & I each had sizable giveaway stacks for the local thrift stores. I rummaged through hers, as is my wont, and rescued a couple of shirts I thought would be great for doing one of those t-shirt makeovers I'm always seeing on Pinterest. The orange and white stripey thing is one of hers that I stole.
The green skirt was a workout shirt Chadwick got late last year that he only used once or twice, at most. He gained weight after his surgery in November so he had to go up a size in workout clothes, but was only able to start working out again gradually, so I really don't know if he ever wore it. That being the case, it wasn't one I was interested in putting into his t-shirt quilt (which I still don't have, but I'll definitely share as soon as I do). Anyway, since it's wicking material it's nice and soft.
I haven't worn this in public yet. Not sure if I'm brave enough. Although I suppose if I'm not, it was a bit of a waste to assemble it.
I have a couple of other things I'm planning to make from old shirts, which I'll post as they're done. This one was fairly straightforward--cut, then sew--but the next one will take a bit more planning. And I'll try to remember to take before pictures.
Have you ever remade old things into new things? How did it turn out?
