Enter my recent dilemma: I volunteered to help with the vacation Bible school program at our church and was assigned to teach the 4 and 5 year olds. There's a day by day curriculum, yeah! I was more than willing to jump in and help.
I almost backed out when I was given my "Crew Leader" tee shirt. A standard issue crew neck. Gah! I felt itchy and constricted just looking at the neckline. Then, I remembered my recent foray into knit repair and construction. I decided to brave giving the standard issue shirt a make over.
I googled and you-tubed many videos and blogs concerning tee shirt refashion and I stumbled onto this one. I watched it multiple times, then took a really deep breath and cut into an older, rarely worn shirt. I wanted to try this method out before destroying the shirt I needed to wear all week. It worked like a charm! Here's the VBS shirt...
Self portraiting is quite difficult!
Ahhh, so much more comfortable! And I even top stitched it!
