Sewalong Challenge #8 Complete

Whoohoo, finished one!
I've been so far behind this feels like a huge victory XD
It wasn't what I meant to do, and the whole thing took me maybe 20 minutes, but, it fulfills the challenge so I'll take it.

Some time ago some friends bought me this teeshirt:




It's a little hard to tell because of the lighting but... it's tan.

I appreciated the thought, 'cause as they well knew I love Magneto. But I don't care for brown. The only brown thing in my wardrobe is my jedi cloak, and that's only allowed because... jedi cloak.

So I folded it up and put it aside until I could decide what to do with it. My original thought was to make a red backpack with purple trim and cut out the picture and applique it to it. But when I got it out earlier this month along with a bunch of other teeshirts I'd set aside to refashion (funnily, I was actually looking for a different shirt from the same friends in particular) the print was much larger than I'd remembered. Aaaaand I decided I just didn't like it enough to go through all the effort of making a cute backpack.

Well!

I recently started following Matt from the Great British Sewing Bee at Sew What's New (if you haven't watched that show, you should, it's full of really lovely, nice, creative people. I'm particularly fond of the history bits, and Patrick), and he posted a tee shirt refashion just this month.</div>

I've seen these tee shirt bags before, but his tutorial is a nice clear one and I hadn't thought of zigzagging the edges to prevent overstretching.

Anyway, so I did that.


Challenge #8, Something Geek Inspired, done!
Also it's a refashion, so technically Challenge #6 done also 8D

And bonus, yesterday's harvest:

Thanks! But I'm not sure I would have thought of it myself, if I hadn't seen these teeshirt bags done before.
