T-shirt shrug

I made this last night using this tutorial. It took me less than an hour, and would probably be quicker for someone else. I am slow at sewing anyway and I was tired. Sorry about the poor quality picture, I used my webcam.
This is my new favorite tutorial! This t-shirt is one I've had for years, and it had a big stain on the front, right in the middle, which is now turned under for the casing. I really should have gotten rid of it years ago, but I hold onto random things, and now I'm glad that I did. Next time I would take the time to pin the casing down before I try to sew it, because it got a little bunched up going around the curve of the neckline. The nice thing is that you can't tell because it's all gathered up anyway.
I like this because it's cute and super feminine, but also very practical. It's made out of an old t-shirt so I can feel comfortable wearing it. This first one is a little rough, but I will be making more in different colors.
Seriously try this out! It will not take you very long, and it's super easy.

That is neat Jane!. It's nice to make something new out of something not very useful.
