Here's a new tee shirt refashion I made, the same way as this one. It's amazing how a £1 tee from a charity shop can so easily and quickly be transformed into a snug and comfy top with just a few lines of strategic stitching. One of the best things about using second-hand clothes is that they're all extremely soft from having been repeatedly washed and you don't have to worry about any shrinking or color bleeding [although it goes without saying I always wash and tumble dry everything before use, so it smells like all my other clothes before I've even put it on.. I mean come on. I may love a good deal but I'm not a hobo]. I know some people just can't get into second-hand and while I do appreciate that fact, I personally adore the knowledge that you're getting something for so little money that gives you the opportunity to craft without using virgin materials. Win-win-win. AND the money you spent goes to charity. Win. AND your new design is entirely original. Win. That's 5 wins for those not keeping count.
And I also want to show off the gorgeous fabric basket I won from Kelly in the group giveaway we did last month. Thanks Kelly! :) :) :) I love it!
