Another Challenge Done

37/100 complete

Today I finished Challenge 20– to take a plain T-shirt and up-cycle it into something more interesting. I did this as a birthday gift for a very special friend. I tried to stay true to colours she likes and the appropriate level of frou-frou-ness. (Generally less than mine!) It was difficult to really photograph it well but this is the closest I could get.

Before

I was pleased with the result and I think she was too. It’s a very long time since I ironed a T-Shirt, in fact it could be a first!

Finished Result

My next aim is to get some more hand sewing projects going so that when I don’t have the inclination to get the machine out I have something to work on. For now I think I’ll do some more Russian dolls to add to the ‘present box’.
