Turning a shirt from boring to cute!

Saturday morning I woke up early and in such a productive mood (it might have had something to do with the 3 naps I took the day before). I looked at my schedule, and since I had almost no homework due this week, It left me no choice but to craft! (What a shame, eh?)

I found an old shirt laying next to some lace in my craft box and an idea started to form in my head.

I measured out three strips of lace and pinned them on the shirt.

Then I had to sew the ends of the lace in to the seam of the arm, and then straight across.  Sewing the lace in a straight line was probably the hardest part. I don't have a sewing machine, so I did it all by hand. Hiding the stitches was not that hard because I followed the line the lace had at the top of it. 

I'm in love with how it turned out!

Tell me what you think!
