When the shirt doesn't fit no more

This week, it's the T-shirt's turn to go from blah to Tada!. It makes me think that this project is therapeutic for both t-shirt and the owner: the T-shirt has a new lease on life and the owner is saved from any guilty feelings ("I love you but I need to let you go"). Okay, tell me that I'm not the only one going through this kind of drama!

Blah...I don't fit into this shirt anymore and I want to put the blame on the washing machine ("It shrunk in the wash!"). Instead I'll blame it on the pizza and cheesecake ("They're too good to resist!").

I love the gray color and the cute print, complete with embroidery, beads & pailettes!

Tada! I saved the print and sewed it on this plain canvas bag.
It makes for a good weekend bag that's not available in any store!


  1. I love all your T-shirt ideas! I have some canvas bags that could use a good make over and what better way then an old tee that I love! It's nice being original!

  2. Oh my gosh I am SO glad that you commented on my blog! I really love yours! So many great tips...I'm going to be sitting here for a long time :P

  3. This is a great idea. You can have a bag that no one else has!

  4. Hi there Lisa, Lahmode & Crystal! Thanks for the visit & for leaving all these nice words =)

  5. Amazing. Why didn't I think of that before I threw out my fav shirt!

  6. Hi Beach Vintage! Thank you for dropping by =)
