Crafting week – Day 4 top!

Today was the day to do something with the second of the two t-shirts I’d been surgerying. (will add link to old one here).

I wanted to make a skirt, but unfortunately there wasnt enough material, then it was going to be a dress- but as you can see, not the most in the way of material!

I love working with t-shirt material, and this was no exception. It did take a bit of fighting to work out how to do it, and it could have
been a wee bit more flattering, but overall it seems like a pretty rrasonable job. I cut the back to show
mr sea chicken tattoo and also to destroy a logo (it’s a bootleg tee and I don’t really like logos anyhow, even if the pattern on the front is maybe a logo.) The picture doesn’t show it so well, but there is a ruffle on the bottom of the top in brown to match the ties on the straps.

Anyways onto the pictures 🙂

Lucky me does have internets. Unlucky me doesn’t have my adaptor for my camera though, so sadly you are dealing with iphone pictures.

I decided that for the week we’re working, every day will have one crafty thing I’ve made.  This one comes from an idea I used at christmas (well sinterklass) to make a dinosaur cozy and a kitty one.  But rather than a whole cozy, it’s just a hat/scarf thing so I can be warm in winter, and wierd!

I used – Fleece – in green, white and yellow, 4 buttons, and a silly amount of silliness.

If you want I can throw together a tutorial – just ask in the comments 😀
