Yesterday was my sister's 22nd Birthday (Happy B-day Meg!). I really wanted to make her something that she would use and enjoy (and something easy to mail).
One project I have been wanting to make for a while was a reverse applique t-shirt ( I first saw it here at Sweet Verbena). I knew Megan would love it , so I went to work. Following the instructions on the blog, I ended up with this version:
This was a fun and quick project. And I think it looks wonderful.
Here is the total cost of the project (don't look, Megan!):
- T-shirt from Forever 21: $5.60
- 1 yard of Fabric (from Hancock): $3.95
- Fusible Interfacing (from remnants pile): $1.00
TOTAL COST: $10.95
And I had so much Fabric left over, I decided to make a Part II gift. Megan just moved into an apartment and is now cooking for her self, and what does every cooking student need? An Apron. So I went to work using the rest of the fabric from this project and a little bit from a previous project. I ended up with a pretty chic reversible apron with a pocket!
And on top of this, this apron was free to make since I had everything I needed!
Two unique gifts for $10.95. Oh YEAH!
Here is the tutorial on how to make this apron. Hope you liked the gift Megan! :-)
