Striped Pocket T Shirt

The other day I went to Hobby Lobby and found this super soft gray knit in the remnant bin.  I snatched it up with plans to make a t shirt.  stiped pocket t shirt

When I got home, I unrolled the fabric, only to find it was a little small.  There was no way I could make a t shirt out of this cut of fabric (unless it was for one of Sweet Pea’s dolls).  I couldn’t get my mind off of the gray t shirt I wanted, so I started to think about piecing together a shirt.  stiped pocket t shirt back

I used that small piece of gray knit to piece together the front of the t shirt and then found some blue and white striped knit in my stash to piece together the back!  stiped pocket t shirt hem line

I love how it turned out.  Sometimes accidents bring out the best finished product.  With the little bit of striped fabric left over, I cut out a tiny pocket to sew to the front!  stiped pocket t shirt close upWhen Josh was taking these photos, the wind was incredible!  He loved how my bangs would stand straight up…I just had to include a pic of my great hair day!stiped pocket t shirt wind blownstiped pocket t shirt funny
