Feature Friday - 101 T-shirts

For today's Feature Friday I tried a shirt from this book that was sent to me.



Cathy Filian is an Emmy nominated tv host, crafter, inventor, designer and book author. This is her newest book, 101 Tee's: Restyle, Refashion, Revamp.  It's full of ideas for transforming t-shirts.

I saw this shirt and thought the idea was fun.


So, I made this one.  (I would recommend making much smaller slits than indicated.  I sewed the shirt and scarf near the slits because the slits were too large.)


This shirt was my favorite in the book.


The book covers various techniques like iron on patches, sequins, bleaching, dying, embroidery, etc.  There are lots of pictures and ideas. 

Thanks for dropping in.

How funny. I had come up with that scarf idea for a shirt for my daughter and thought I was soooo clever and would probably be the first to think of it. Oh well. :) Glad to know it works!

Your t-shirt refashion is super cute! I think I'll have to add that book to my wishlist, right below a screen print machine and above the second season of Merlin. Thanks for sharing!

I love it. I just did it. Yours looks great and I get why you had to sew them. You cut yours horizontal rather than vertical. So you had to cut two slits - instead of one vertical one - for each exposed chunk of scarf, right? I could be wrong. That is just how it looks in the picture. Either way - super cute and fun!
