Cant wait to make this and just had another idea for the left over sleeve. Hem around the neck cut out and and cut 2 strips from back scrap. Take the first strap n attach to each end of the collar. You can add ribbon or raffia around the curve finish. An instant baby bib. Neat huh! Gonna post when i get it made.
Thanks for sharing your talent. Keep up the crafts!!

I did okay. It isn't pretty, but I am wearing it to a punk show, so it's perfect.

I tried it and it's probably not as good as yours but I like it

Brilliant! I got a bloody huge Finisher t-shirt at my half-marathon... Now I can actually wear it in public! I'm definitely hemming, though.

I was at your blog earlier as i was doing a mass online search of up cycled projects for shirts and i decided against doing one of these as i had done a few to no avail but having found some larger shirts and your post again i'm inspired to give it another go!
