Trash to Treasure Thursday

My husband cleaned out his drawers a few months back and gave me some of his old t-shirts to experiment with.  I got a sewing machine for Christmas (for myself) and have been learning as I go.  I took a sewing class in High School but that was YEARS ago…so I’ve become friends of YouTube to re-teach me how to sew. 

This use to be a concert t-shirt that he probably wore only a few times.  Now it’s a cute toddler skirt.  I didn’t have a pattern to follow – but I did look closely at a skirt that she already has in her wardrobe as a reference.  I forgot to take pictures along the way but I promise to make it again and provide you with a tutorial. 

Have you made any Trash to Treasure projects this week?  I’d love to see them – leave a comment with a link to your pictures.
