recycled tank tunic for valentine's day

Posted by Picasa
Here is something to wear with leggings, that works as well as a dress when it's toasty by the woodstove, but also works when you put on snowpants to go outside. Best part is that it's made from stuff in my clothing recycle bin! It helps to have a serger, to do that groovy stitching, but it could be stitched with a stretch stitch and left raw or turned inside for a cleaner look.

I'm working on a few more versions of this same concept, with other tops and recycled t-shirt scraps. Next, maybe I can teach a class and work up a tutorial. Wouldn't this be a cute little girls tunic too?

Love your site! Got into felting wool and sewing a couple years-still love the new creations that can happen with wool. Thanks for visiting my site. I'll be back!
