Remaking a Tee-Shirt

When I was at the wolf sanctuary, they gave me a teeshirt.

But I don't like collars up around my neck or the square shape so I was thinking I might make it into a grocery bag or remake it into a shirt I would want to wear.

This is how I did it:

I made a paper pattern to cut the neckline to a shape I wanted by taking an 8 and 1/2 X 11 inch piece of paper and cutting the pattern by simply drawing the shape on one side and folding the paper in half and cutting the shape to put on the neckline and cut the fabric.

Then I took in the sides a little and put elastic in the arms so they wouldn't hang like a square.

Now I might actually wear the shirt.

It was super simple.

Cute idea. I don't like crewneck shirts either. Looks great on you!
