A shirt becomes a shirt. . .recycling


torn shirtMy younger daughter has given me this shirt to turn into a shirt for my granddaughter.  She did give me the shirt quite some time ago but I am only now contemplating making the new shirt.  I am a bit slow off the mark.  I will get it unpicked today and hopefully get it cut out this week and maybe even sewn together.  Who knows what is in store this week.

That was last week when I wrote that.  I did manage to get the shirt unpicked although I cut it rather than unpicking it, much quicker.

I was also able to get all the pieces cut out so I should get it sewn this week.  There was fabric left over which I have set aside for some future quilting.

An update: I can now say that the shirt is almost finished.  I just have to make the buttonholes and sew on the buttons.

The pattern I used was the same one I used when I made this shirt previously, also from a dad shirt.

Final update, the shirt is finished.
