Black T-shirt into Ferrari T-shirt

Old T-shirt got a embroidery. Great idea for covering a hole, for example. (In that case you would have to add some material to cover the hole first.)

Cashmere sweater into cozy winter suit

Cashmere Sweater from e-Bay, 8 Euro. Folklore decoration ribbon, 6 Euro.
Difficulty 5/10 (It got complicated when I did the buttons because I didn't plan ahead. Should have been a 3/10, it's very easy to make. I re-used the hole for the head and all the cuffs - the baby was exactly as long as the sweater from shoulder to ancle. ) No pattern, just improvisation.

Just look what these clever people make out of old clothes. Nice cuts, lots of attention to detail. If you have a chance, go visit their store in London.

Great blog as well, check it out!

T-shirt into jacket lining

The baby jacket was sewn from a 60's fabric that my mom had kept. The lining, however, used to be a T-shirt from a market in Thailand. I gave to my brother who hated it and gave it back. Now it's finally found it's true purpose in life. Difficulty 7/10, result 10/10.

Reblogged: T-shirt and fabric into dress

So cute.
I guess it's more or less a straight piece of fabric sewn onto the t-shirt. I've been planning to do this for a long time.  Moderniteter did it already in 2007.
