Made over Tee

I can't believe that once again it has been forever since I posted!! School for the kids has already been a little crazy. We're all still getting used to the fact that they are now in high school. Them because they have a whole new set of responsibilities and expectations. And me because, well....my babies are freaking in high school! How does that happen so fast?!

So far in the three weeks since school has started there have been three colds, two cases of chiggers,  and one sports injury. Hoping that the next three weeks are better!

Anyway, all of that to say that I'm staying busy, but having a hard time finding the time to blog. I have had a few orders to ship out so that's been a good thing.

I also made myself a new shirt. I started with a teal colored t-shirt. I cut out the neckline and cut the sleeves to be more flattering. Then I drew a flower near the neckline with chalk. I pinned a grey piece of jersey knit (I cut it off of a t-shirt that was destined for the rag pile) and stitched over my chalk lines by hand using a big straight stitch. Then I went back and cut away the top layer of fabric to form my petals.

I really like the way it turned out. I'll have to come up with some more designs and make others.
