Remember this heart cut-out t-shirt refashion that I made for Valentine’s Day? And the heart shaped back cut out t-shirt?  That shirt is one of my favorites.  I wear it out and about a lot.  Like I said last week, tons of people have told me how much they love it, too.  So, we’re going to make more of these lovely upcycled and refashioned t-shirts.  My goal is to have an entire dresser drawer full of these lovelies by the end of the year!

Turn wrong-side out, and cut out the excess fabric.  This step isn’t necessary, but I don’t like the extra fabric.  Be careful of the accidentally cutting into the red lace.
