So, I haven't been crafting as much as I would like lately. Or rather, the projects I'm working on are more long term. You will see them eventually but I can still only work in relativey small spurts. But whatever, at least I'm working :D
When I woke up this morning I was feeling a little grustrated by how long it had been since I had actually completely something. So, I decided to start a 5 minutes project. This is something I had been meaning to do for a long time but had been putting off because it was such a tiny project (how's that for self-sabotage?)
Anyway, it all started with this super cool shirt I have had since I was a kid and haven't been able to let go of. Takes me back to teenage motorcycle roadtrips!
While nostalgic it was certainly not stylish but it's all good. I have scissors!
I have been wanting to try this tshirt reconstruction I had found on Pinterest forever and had never gotten to it. This is my inspiration from www.oaknyc.com :
Easiest way to make a new pattern is to CHEAT CHEAT CHEAT and copy something else you own that looks about right.
Okay, here is a good chance to learn from my (perpetual) mistakes. Don't trace on the right (out) side of your shirt with the chalk. You want to turn the shirt inside out and trace on the other size...I'm such a space cadet...
|I brought the collar up so the logo wasn't cut out.|
|Back too (ps you'll want the back collar as well)...|
|Pop it on the form (floor works too if you're formless)|
And the finished product. After about 3 minutes of very hard work. Voila:
The Half and Half T-shirt
Pretty freakin' awesome I think :)
See you soon!
