This was a boys shirt that was too small for my brother. So I took it and turned it into this! The t-shirt fabric was too soft to pass up and the colors are great! The pocket is a square of jean fabric from an old pair of jeans. The neckline is a little big in comparison to the rest of the shirt, and I don’t know why…. hopefully he’ll grow into it. Excuse the faces; my nephew didn’t want his picture taken!:)

Here it is! Proof I have not disappeared!:) I do think I have lost my creativity mojo, though. I’ve kind of hit a dead spot, inspiration wise. I was so excited about my break from school, cuz then I would have time to sew. And now, I have nothing to show for it but a few projects. I have some ideas, but no desire to make them. Oh, well. Hopefully I’ll get some motivation soon.
This shirt is made from a men's Aeropostale button up shirt. I just used this pattern as a base, then added some details. The chest pocket on the original shirt became a pocket on this one. I thought the dog was really cute. However, it turned out a little smaller than I wanted, so I will probably end up selling it.

My sister recently acquired these pants. They are really cute, but reallly white. And white is never a good color for my sister… mainly because they don’t stay that way for long!:)
So, an obvious thing to do was to dye them! I was a little hesitant, because I haven’t dyed very many things. I really didn’t want to ruin them or have them turn out patchy. But, I am very pleased with how it turned out! If I do so say myself!:)
