She presents The Tiny “T” Tutorial


Maybe your baby or child needs some new shirts for Spring? Mine did.


So good news! I’m going to teach you how to take this (an unflattering but cute shirt)


And turn it into this:


I have a really EASY tutorial and free pattern for a raglan sleeve t-shirt that can literally make dozens of different designs…all from old clothing and fabric you have crowding your closets. That basically means this pattern will enable you to be thrifty, crafty, environmentally conscious and awesome. Here are all shirts I made using the same 2-piece pattern! This can also be used to make boy’s clothes. Envision a baseball tee.






That multi-color one was an old skirt I used to use when I attended a lot of 80’s parties. Or any parties at all for that matter.

I made most of these in one night! You can get a whole shirt done in under an hour. Even if you can hardly sew and don’t have a serger! I SWEAR.

Here they are in action.



And my favorite:


That Lucky Feather Pillow and the pattern for it will soon be for sale in my shop! But first, check out the metallic thread action on that belly…


I can’t wait to see what you do with this pattern! I will be posting your creations on my blog! So please upload your designs to my flickr group! (of which I am currently the ONLY member…)

Happy crafting!
