Return of the Free T-shirts

 Hello Refashion Co-op. I used a couple freebie t-shirts to make a shirt recently. The free shirts had writing on them, like free shirts usually do. I didn't really like the writing though.





Here is a look at the shirts. I cut them in half and saved the back of the shirts. The back of the shirts was nice and plain, with no writing, slogans or advertising. 



I connected the shirts to make one complete shirt. Unfortunately the white shirt had writing on the sleeve too. Ugh! I didn't like that.


I cut a small pocket shape from the front of the red shirt. 


I attached it to the sleeve to cover the writing. It turned out really cute. There is no official front and back to this shirt since it's made from 2 backs. It could be worn either way.


Thanks for reading, for more pictures and details go to I Can Work With That.

Fantastic blog! Do you have any tips and hints for aspiring writers? I’m planning to start my own website soon but I’m a little lost on everything. Would you propose starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for a paid option? There are so many options out there that I’m completely overwhelmed .. Any suggestions? Many thanks! womens distressed sweatshirts
