I was browsing blogs last week and ran across this fun tutorial on Trashn2Tees. She took a tee shirt and turned it into a fun spring shrug with a lettuce edge.
I just so happened to be going through my clothes later that week and nabbed a couple tees of my own for this fun little project. It turned out pretty good too. I added some lettuce edged strips to one side for a little pop & ruffle.
I opted for a shorter sleeve...same edging.
The biggest bump was the back neckline. The tee was too big to begin with and the new line behind and around the shoulders is a tad too wide to stay on well. Although a different top underneath may be all the difference it needs for a fix.
I am considering adding another strip or two around the neckline area but with some elastic thread to gather it in tighter so it will stay on better. We'll see. If nothing works - it's no loss since the tee was in the to be given away pile anyway.
