I found this awesome cat t-shirt at the local Goodwill and knew I needed to put him to good use.  Since I rarely wear t-shirts, I decided to use the shirt to make a skirt applique.  Using an oversized t-shirt I was able to make the overall body of the skirt.

Step 1: Cut both shirts to size

First I carefully cut out the cat leaving approximately an inch of excess shirt.  I wanted this to add a pop to the skirt since I used contrasting colors.

Then I cut the larger shirt (mine was 4XL because I wanted it to be longer) underneath the sleeves. Doing this created a large cylinder which was consequently too large for my body.  To make this more appropriately sized, I removed six inches from the side and sewed the wrong sides together to create a smaller cylinder (sadly I do not have photos of this step).
This is very cute! Have a super day! <br />Sunshiine
Ahhh! It's so cute. :D
Thanks Jessy! I'm quite happy with how it turned out and I'm looking forward to making more clothing. Hope your shirt weaving is going well!
