Not Too Shabby

I finished the owls which means...time for a totally new project!  

I don't know if you remember, but lately I've been playing with remaking tee-shirts so that they fit me.  It's really fun but I had trouble figuring out sizing.  To figure that out I went and bought a bunch of giant ugly tee shirts to experiment on.  I knew it was a new way of sewing and I would need a ton of practice so I bought quite a few.  But...surprise surprise...I figured it out by tee-shirt # 3.  Not too shabby.  However, now I have a buncha giant ugly tee shirts.  


Like this one.


So I cut them buggers up.


They look like this until you stretch them out.  Then they look like this:


Thanks for another great idea, Alabama Chanin.

Now there are many things I can make with them.  I choose....jewelry.
But, until then I just want to say that this shirt:


was awesome.


Unfortunately, a really large printed area on a tee shirt doesn't stretch the way I need it to so I had to throw that part away.  However, I still really enjoyed cutting up the word cancer.


I chopped it up real good.


On an unrelated note, I also fixed Mr. Floppy.  He appreciates it, his face was loose.  Now he can go home to my daughter; she has really missed him.
