T-shirt Reconstruction- Easy Shrug

With spring here and summer coming I have been doing my usual change-of-season sorting of clothes for keeping, passing on and donation. I seem to have a lot of tank tops for the girls for summer, which is great, they don't mind, but sometimes in the evening or early morning you need a little something extra for warmth.

I ran across this tutorial for making an easy ruched cardigan from an old t-shirt and decided to give it a try since I had a couple of boxier old t-shirts for the girls. I think it turned out nicely and Cheyenne loves it. Now I think I know what to do with my maternity shirts once I have this baby.


  1. The shrug is so cute, as are the pillowcase skirts. Can you point me to the directions for the skirt? Thank you!

  2. I didn't really use directions for the skirt, but I'll see if I can write some.
