I love this idea soo much! However, and I think I may just be far too sleep deprived, but I'm not 100% sure about steps 6 and 7. Is the tshirt sewn above the button strip? Is it folded over somewhere that I didn't notice? Please let me know, I want to make a couple of these for work tomorrow!;] lol
