There Once was a T-Shirt

     Almost one month into my no new clothes for a year thing, and I have to say I feel good about it. I feel good about re-using things, and making something that would have gone in a landfill into a part of my wardrobe.

I have way too many clothes anyway, and I am finding new ways to use things.

I have a crush on fellow friend, and bloggers:

Cassie Stephens  and
Jill the refashionista
They have been my motivation to start this blog and to try something new.

Thank you to Cassie who, without her asking me to do a DIY on a scarf  I made for my class lesson, I never would have done this. She gave me the bug...thanks for the cooties Cassie!
Check out my DIY on her awesomely amazing blog

And this T-Shirt re-fashion from Jill I decided to try it myself :

Old T-shirt I haven't worn in a loooong time
The next thing I did was turn the shirt inside out, and sew up the bottom of the shirt.
 There's no going back now!
Not a perfect job, but it will be inside, and no one will be the wiser...uh except you.
I then, cut off the collar, and sleeves. (My husband got me that cool pizza cutter tool for clothes thingy) It's awesome! Very sharp, so be careful! Turn the shirt right side out......
Are you thinking: "Where is she going with this?"

I have summer and farmers markets on the brain, and now I have a re-useable, and washable tote for the all the summer goodies.
This year will be our year...Go Cubs!
