Quick Upcycled Tee

Oh, spring.  I have been waiting and waiting for you.  Thank you for finally showing up in the midwest.  It seems my 16-month-old is at a serious loss for short-sleeved T-shirts, though.  This seems silly to me, since he has an older brother.  Maybe I should check that growing pile of laundry in the basement??

But let’s be honest, who wants to do laundry when you can make a T-shirt in half the time? [I’m raising my hand, because that’s me!]

This tee was entirely upcycled, and took me less than an hour, [thank you, napping children!] including cutting apart the men’s T-shirt, cutting out all the pieces, serging it together, and the super simple applique.

Have I mentioned how much I love my serger?  I have?  Well, I just might have to mention it again.  I l.o.v.e. my serger.

If only my little man had been in the photo-taking mood to model it.

  1. I’m so glad to hear that you like your Brother serger! I bought one awhile back after seeing so many great reviews, but when I got it home and took it out to use it, it didn’t work! I had to take it back and never got another one. So sad. I think I’ll have to re-buy it this summer when I have some b-day money to spend. :)
    Thanks for linking up! You did a great job!

  2. Cute T-shirt! I don’t have a serger yet, but I’m amazed at all the things they can do. I can’t believe how quickly you were able to whip that up!
