Upcycle a T-shirt

I had a tshirt from Old Navy that had seen better days, BUT was super soft and comfy.  Try as I might I just couldn't toss it in the thrift store pile.  So it just hung in my closet waiting....  until I found a little girls dress with a nice pattern at the thrift store.


As you can see there were some stains on it :(  

I folded the shirt in half and decided where to make my cut

Then I chopped it off ABOVE the stains. 

Took the little girls dress and cut the bottom off of it.  This was a fuller sundress so it worked perfectly. 

Pinned the two together.

And sewed.  

Ta-DAH  Franken shirt LIVES!  

Here it is on, yes a crappy photo but you get the idea. 

Next time you have a shirt you just can get rid of, use your imagination and make it new again!  Good luck and have fun!
