I purchased this skirt for $1 from my favorite thrift store. It was just too long and ruffled for my liking, so I removed the ruffle at the bottom. The edges of the skirt were already raw, making this refashion super fast and easy (under 10 minutes!) For the lining, I serged the hem and left about 1/4 in. peaking out . The black shirt in the "after" photo was purchased from the same thrift store for $1.
Total cost: $1
These shorts (3T) are made from a thrifted shirt using my own pattern. One sleeve was used as a side pocket for the shorts. I have several more of these in the works for this summer!
This is a shirt I just finished for my Hubby! I used the reverse applique technique from this book. The "recycle" image is first painted on using a stencil, and then a second piece of jersey fabric is pined to the back. Then it is hand stitched around the edge of the entire "recycle" image. When finished, the center is cut out, revealing the background fabric. (It is hard to see in this picture because the background fabric is black too. )
