Well, I did it. I had warned my husband.
Inspiration hit and I just went with it.
Take one unused, rejected by the hubby because "it just doesn't fit quite right" white t-shirt and start CUTTING IT UP.
I love this. I really really really love cutting up shirts.
I may have an obsession.
Trace around your favorite fitting v-neck shirt and start cutting the shape out:
Trim the finished edge off the sleeves and set them aside. Use all leftover fabric pieces to cut out 2 sizes of heart shapes. I used a cookie cutter for my guide:
And ended up with a nice pile of cut-out heart shapes.
Took the sleeve edges/hems, cut them in half, and stitched them on to the v-neck:
Basted, ruffled and reattached the sleeves, then tacked on those heart shapes creating a lovely embellishment:
Then wait a week. Finally realize the shoulders are too wide, trim more off of the shoulders, seam rip the sleeves off, then reattach them correctly.
When all is said and done, your previously owned by hubby undershirt has transformed into:
Not too shabby for an unused rejected undershirt:
