Refashioned T-Shirt to Cute Shrug

First of all, Happy New Year everyone!

The holidays are over and now I can  get caught up on some posts that I have been so excited to share. Though the holidays were super busy, we were able to enjoy some much-needed family time and finally got some good pictures of the kids together!

I also got the sewing machine up and running, so I have been able to start on some projects I have been dying to do.

Number one on the list was to make a shrug that I had pinned on Pinterest a while back. We are fortunate enough to get a few hand me downs on occasion, and sometimes they have a few flaws, maybe a stain here or there? But I found this tutorial from Make It and Love It and was inspired to repurpose this t-shirt!

Yep, I had all of the necessary tools to get started! iPad with the tutorial handy, TV remote, seam ripper and other miscellaneous sewing supplies.

With a few modifications, I came up with this as a final result!

Not too shabby if I may say so myself! (Considering the fact that the last thing I made with a sewing machine was a pillow in 7th grade Home Ec.)

And while I had Skylar model the shrug, the other kids joined in on the photo shoot too…

Too cute 🙂

Moral of this story: Think twice before you donate or throw out clothes. Be creative and you can probably repurpose a clothing item too!

    Sweet & simple! I like it too! Been wanting to try out myself by errr hesitating on my sewing skills since I don’t owe any sewing machines… =(

    • It was suprisingly easy to make. I did start this project by hand before I had my sewing machine, but was able to finish it up with the machine. So you might be able to do it by hand if you have some serious patience!
