T-Shirt Transformations



WHAT YOU WILL LEARN:

Have some older T-shirts that just need to have a bit of a lift?  Then come join us as we take our new, old, and ill-fitting T-shirts and transform them into works of art using techniques such as darts, pin tucks, yo-yos, and new necklines, just to name a few.

  • Sewing machine in good working order (with accessories that came with the machine)*
  • Sewing Machine needles, size 80 or 90 jersey knit (ball point) or stretch*
  • Serger (OPTIONAL) in good working order with serger thread to match the t-shirt*
  • T-shirts to transform

  • Other sewing notions that you love to sew with (like glasses)
  • Fabrics (will depend on how you want to transform your shirt)
    • FOR EMBELLISHING WITH FLOWERS, YO-YOS, ETC.:  
      • Scraps of tulle, chiffon, organza, lace, etc. for flowers, petals, leaves and yo-yos to embellish your shirt

      • ½ yd or more fabric to make a scarf neckline, the amount depends on if you want it one layer or two, and how wide and drapy you would like the ‘scarf.*
