T shirt dress I made using Robert Kaufman Laguna Cotton Jersey Gradient Zig Zag Emerald. I sewed the skirt to the top half of a t shirt I didn't wear much anymore, and used the technique where you use well-fitting clothing as a pattern, trace, and sew on the lines! I got the idea for the contrast directional waistband from this other tutorial which I have pinned (and plan to make as well!) www.make-it-funky...

Bandana skirt dresses I made for my nieces using the skirt from this tutorial, and attaching it to a t shirt to make a dress instead of just adding a waistband. I also appliqued hearts instead of circles. Don't they look adorable! alphamom.com/...

Spring Ruffle Top with tutorial from made by rae on sew mama sew. I didn't have as much fabric as suggested, so pleats are 0.5" instead of 1". In the front they are 1" apart and in the back 1.5" apart. I wanted a more fitted look, so the smaller pleats worked out in my favor. I took in the sides much more than suggested by trying it on and pinning.

Panther's shirts. 1. I first tried printing with the cardstock method, which was great until I put it in water. 2. Then I found something that suggested Acrylic fabric medium, smeared. 3. Printed fabric underwater (during rinse) using 4. June Tailor colorfast fabric sheets from JoAnn. 5. Fabric is a little stiff, and you see holes from applique. They held up underwater per 3, but the packaging says no detergent, so I hope they wash ok! As long as they're better than 1, I think we're good!

Florida Gators swimming in water appliqué for brothers for their birthday. I do most of my appliqué by printing shapes off Google images and tracing onto fabric. These were no exception.

Repurposed ill-fitting t-shirt w cute design to new, better fitting t-shirt. What I learned: the screen print is rubbery and the machine does not glide well over the letters. Need to help it along.
