Ten Minute T-Shirt Shrug

Ah, the pleasant air of spring…..makes me want to wear my summer dresses. But since it’s not quite warm enough for some of them, I transformed an old t-shirt to make a quick shrug that will ward off the chill until those hot days of summer arrive. It’s so easy, I want to make one in every color!

Happy Easter!


PS: You can find the tutorial for the dress here.

  5. Oh, this is so beautiful !

    • Thank you, Lucille! These are my favorite colors to wear!

      • They are very complimentary to you, soft green as well. I have a favourite (made of denim and white, if I recall correctly) but I can’t find it now.

        Your blog is very inspiring and just motivates me to clear out my “dumping ground”, setup my machines and start putting my sewing skills, so wonderfully taught to me by my patient Mom to good work on all my hand-me-downs.

        Thank you

        • I would really like to see your creations when you get started. It’s always so fun to me to see what other people dream up. 🙂 It’s funny you mention soft green. I was just ironing a long soft green thrift store dress that I picked up yesterday. I’m hoping to make a maxi skirt from it today.
          Happy Sewing!

    Wow, this is incredible!! It doesn’t look like a DIY and is such a practical idea on so many levels.

    I hope you’re having a great Easter!

    Ok, so as a beginner-I’m a little slow, like more than 10 minutes- but I got a request to make another for my sister quick as I was done! Thanks so much for the great ideas!

    • You are soooo welcome! I’m glad it worked for you! You’ll be faster on the next one and the next one and the next one…. because, if you’re anything like me, you’re gonna want one in every color. 🙂
      Happy sewing!!!

  9. so clever! Going to look for an old tee to do this with!!

  10. This is such a cute idea. Some of my sewing students brought in some t-shirts to refashion, and I think this would be a perfect project. Thanks for sharing!

    I like it with the long sleeves-a little more coverage for the spring days. I have a long sleeve grey one in my refashion pile-new idea!

  12. Marianne says:

    I want to try this! Thanks for your awesome ideas.
