Sew News T-Shirt Makeovers!
I stopped into Old Navy the other day during my lunch break and was pleasantly surprised by a $5 T-shirt sale. I snatched up 10 shirts for $50 and started playing. I have completed three shirt makeovers so far.
Two shirts made into one with reverse applique:
marking & cutting both shirts
pinning shirts together at side seams
pinning along upper edge
stitching side seams, upper edges and lower edge (after trimming upper shirt shorter than under shirt) using a stretch stitch and ballpoint needle
adding raw edge applique with contrasting thread
That’s shirt number one. Check back next week for the other two!
