My DS1 has a ... nope, let me start again.
My DS1 HAD a favorite t-shirt which was so uuuused and tireddd, full of holes with fraying neckline ribbing. I told him I was trowing it out. He has many nice t-shirts in his closet. "Yes, but I like THIS one!" he said. Too bad!! Out to the trash goes the t-shirt.
I should have taken a picture of the t-shirt before hand but you all know what a worn out t-shirt looks like so ... against my best judgement I decided not to throw away the t-shirt but to give it a second life.
The playroom sports many pillows and, of course, a few are favorites and one of them was very ... loved and needed a new cover. You know where I am going with this, right? hehehe!
It did such a wonderful job. This is my FIRST time at machine applique and it was so much fun. I was expecting puckers and tucks but none occurred. I am so proud of myself. Maybe it is just beginner's luck but still ... I am so proud of myself! Yeah!
Ta-dAH!! New pillow with old t-shirt.
I have enjoyed this so much that when I was done with the pillow, I looked around the sewing room to see what else could I applique. :^D. Yes, you will see more things like this from me. It's FUN!!
Until next time ...
P.S. yes, the boys love it too!!
I am joining Sarah from Confessions of a Fabric Addict for "Can I Get a Whoop Whoop" kind of fun.
