A story of a t-shirt!


I bought a t-shirt!!! 

Some people buy dresses but I'm not a dress sort of person!!! I prefer casual or even below casual!!!! 

I bought a couple of t-shirts recently in a cheap shop in town. I like them lots but they're very plain - just like me. Plain Jane!!!! 

So, what does a tatter do with a plain piece of clothing? Well, of course, they yank out some shuttles and attack it with thread. 

I've done a simple split ring braid which I've sewn slightly inwards of the edge. As the t-shirt was cheap I didn't want to spend too much time adding to it as it may well go skanky after a few washes. Mean is what I am!!!  

The true colour is shown in the third picture.  Well, roughly!

I like making that braid, it works well as a handbag project. Then I use it to decorate nighties etc. So this gets thumbs up from me!

I think it looks nice. Good job on that.

I'm a t-shirt girl, too. I've never dressed one up, though. Lovely work, Jane!

I have a couple t-shirts that need this treatment.

Beautiful job, and great embellishment! It appears that you sewed down every picot. Just the thought of that wears me out!

That's a good idea, Jane. Handbags.

Every picot but it doesn't take long.

LOVE this! I thoroughly enjoy embellishing LOTS of things with my tatting: sweaters, canvas grocery bags, quilting blocks, etc. And, I really don't mind sewing down the picots either - seems therapeutic to me.

Great way to jazz up a plain T-shirt. Looks very proper.
