no-sew tee-shirt craft. also, we had a baby.

I apologize for my extended absence, but I’ve been busy. Things have been a lot different with a newborn around. Changing diapers, pumping breastmilk, snuggling my baby…you know how it is with these things. I would rather have stared at my sleeping cherub’s face than craft. But things are changing. I miss doing the things that make me “me,” so I’m working on striking a balance.

I knew that I wanted to be a little creative today, but I didn’t want to make a big mess. I also had zero desire to lug the sewing machine out of its cobwebby hiding place. Did I mention I hate all my clothes these days? Enter today’s project: a no-sew tee-shirt refashioning (I hate the term “hack,” though I’m not sure why). I found the pattern here: http://wobisobi.blogspot.com/2012/07/no-sew-halter-3-diy.html.

Actually, the WobiSobi blog has tons of awesome tee ideas. Some are more complicated than others. You should definitely check it out.

Start with a tee. I wish I used one that was a bit bigger, as a little flow would have been nice.

Make cuts as recommended.  The instructions were very easy to follow.

Finished! I was done in about 10 minutes, start to finish.

Things that would make this better: if I’d used a larger shirt, if I didn’t need a bra, and if I’d used chalk to plan my cuts (I just eyeballed it). It was a fun, free (I already had the shirt), and quick project. I’d recommend doing something similar if you’ve got a big ol’ tee-shirt somewhere that’s dying to be worn again.

Oh, and because she’s just so sweet:

My two loves!

I’d love to see other tee-shirt change-ups that you’ve done!
