Tackle It Tuesday

Remember the box of old clothes I got for free? And, the dresses I made from the some-new-some-used tossed out t-shirts? And, remember I was going to make some shorts for Pojke using this tutorial? Well, I did it!

Using four old free t-shirts, I created these: Yea, yea, yea...I know I used all white thread but I'm a rookie and it would have taken me FOR-EV-ER to thread and re-thread and do the bobbin loading and changing thing! LOL Plus, I could see what I was doing better!

And, my big challenge for this one? Learning how to make my 30+ year old machine change from the straight stitch to the t-shirt friendly zig-zag stitch! I'm so proud! *big smile*

Not bad for a notorious klutz who has a history of unfinished craft projects...if I do say so myself! LOL

Wow! Good job Beth! See, elastic wasn't so hard was it?

Paid off 16,000 in debt huh? Wish I could do that! My hat is off to you - that is great!

Wow- you did a great job. Contrasting stitching is quite popular now. Looks great. Keep up the good work!
