Reconstructed T-shirt Tunics!

The majority of this day has been spent, cleaning up remnants of the 4th party! But in addition to that I started a new project that was inspired by THIS GIRL.
She makes some super cool clothes on both Ebay & Etsy in her store called HellHound Vintage. Notice how she has taken a Vintage dead shirt and reconstructed it to actually look kind of hot? ( those jeans are helping a lot too) but anyway I spent all night thinking of how I could do this and then remembered, my sewing machine is broken.

So I went to Target to buy another one, because the part to fix mine cost 1/4 of its actual value, and it is 10 years old. While in there I find this thing here: The Easy Stitcher $25.
What a fantastic little idea and so far I have to say its amazing. Very easy to use, can work on batteries or power, weighs like A pound, so, soooooo much smaller than my old machine, and much fewer buttons. I have not had to change any thread or bobbins yet so that will be the true test.


And here are a few of my creations. Not near as good as hers. I am sure hers are also done very professionally, while mine, could have been sewn by Ralphie, but I really like them. Below is a Vintage Pearl Jam shirt. Probably needs to be taken in a little on the sides but not bad!

Tie Dye much more my style!

Erik is freaking out about me digging in his 4 BAJILLION t-shirts so I shall probably, maybe stop now.
