t shirt, recycle, oversized t shirt, bolero, jacket
This is made by over-sized t-shirt. I just cut the shirt and stared at it, then this bolero idea came up on my mind. It is very comfortable and yes, we can wash it cuz it's t shirt! Try make one for yourself, and if you use your t shirt, you can make one for your daughter!

I know this is an old post but I just had to tell you how much I love this idea. The sleeves really make this version of a shrug so different.

Do you think this would work well with a oversized sweater or knit? Sewing a sweater or knit will most likely ruffle or make “lettuce” edging, but I think it may give a good texture. What ya think? Any pointers ;-)
