Before my re-purpose I was something else, something that had lost its usefulness. But then my designer came along and she thought otherwise and she transformed me and gave me this new lovely purpose. I hope to inspire you to do the same ~ Lorraine Giannetto-Glach
St. Charles - A Step Back in Time!
St. Charles is such a quaint little town nestled in the back woods just 30 minutes west of downtown St. Louis. It was like taking a step back in time, walking along the brick streets, brick side walks and the horse and buggy.
There were many unique shops including an adorable quilt shop - The Quilt Cottage. And many unique clothing shops to enjoy! I would definitely love to visit again.
This is a fun and easy project for almost any age that can use scissors. All you need: Supply List One t-shirt Scissors Tape measure or ruler Lay t-shirt flat, cut off both sleeves. Optional: you can use the sleeves as pockets but you will need a sewing machine. Press the t-shirt flat so that the side seams are marked. Fold t-shirt so that the side seams meet and the front and back are folded on each other. The arm holes line up diagram 1. Now cut the center back at the fold line all the way up back but DO NOT CUT the ribbed neck piece diagram 2. Measure in from the back center and mark 3” in from center back that you just cut. Place the enclosed pattern piece down at the 3” marks and cut out as diagram 3 shows. To make your apron ties measure 3” refer to diagram 4 to see how you will graduate the ties into the arm hole, up around and to the back ribbing. Remember not to cut through the ribbed collar this will be the piece that goes around your head. And here you have it as easy as pie no pun …
