I was looking at this wonderful website: Make it and Love it

And saw this adorable shrug:
 Click on the pic for the full tutorial

And I thought "Why don't I do that with one of my shirts?"

So I did.

Sorry for the spotty-mirror-messy-bath deal, but I thought it would...umm...add character. Right? ;)

Anyway, I took this shirt. Sorry, I don't have a pic of it before I cut it up.

Cut it up/made ruffles out of the bottom half/added to top...done.
Okay, there's a bit more than that, but click on the full tutorial above to really know how to do it. Ashley explains it so well, we'll just leave that up to her :) Thanks for the tutorial Ashley, I love my new shrug!
Have you ever wondered why we don't live in a purple world? Looks like fun, huh?


Also, did I mention that I got the COOLEST gift from the "Christmas in July, Gift Exchange" from over at Craftaholics Anonymous. It came from Jessica in Georgia! Check it out.

What cute fabric! I've been trying to find outfits to match it all week so that I can wear it everyday :) Thanks Jess! 
The gift exchange was so fun! I got to send a little gift to a lovely lady in St. Louis. I totally wanna do it again next year.


  1. Just peeking in through the gift exchange link up. Cute bracelet! And I love the shrug!! Off to check out the tutorial x

  2. Crystal,
    What a rockin bracelet! I love that you planned your wardrobe around that cute accessory! lol I do that too. haha. Thanks for linking up and showing off your gift! I love seeing what everyone made! The next Gift Exchange will be in November, I hope you sign up again :)
    happy crafting,

  3. I love these. I totally need to get up the nerve to make one of my own.

  4. I'm impressed. I will have to ask you when I get confused on my sewing patterns. Sometimes I feel like I can't read, but you have this sewing stuff down!

  5. You did a great job on the shrug. I'm a freelance clothing designer, so it's awesome to see others rockin' their stuff like this!
