Makin' It Monday-Play Shirt Trasnformation

This week is getting off to a much better start than last week!!  So, here is a little tutorial I put together of a play shirt I made my daughter.

I transformed a little bag that some t-shirt sheets came in into a sleeveless shirt.

First, I started by ripping the side seams out of the bottom of the bag to make arm holes.

Next, I ripped out some of the bottom seam of the bag to make a neck opening.

Now that I had the holes opened up, I tried it on Missy priss to see how it fit.  I wasn't really sure that this would work, but it fit pretty well.

Next, I turned the unfinished ends under and hemmed them.  This was hard to do b/c the jersey material wanted to roll up.

To finish off the shirt I tied two pieces of ribbons on the top of the sholder where I didn't rip the existing seam.  I heat sealed the ends so that the ribbon wouldn't fray.

And I was done!

You just never know where that next piece of clothing might come from...

Happy Transforming!
