Camo Crop Top
I was given a camo colored button down men's shirt - great quality in good condition but it had a number of oil stains on it.
I was loathe to cut it up for patchwork so after thinking about it for a bit and remembering that I had a few camo colored to shirts I decided to create another crop top or 2.
The first thing that I did was to remove the chest pocket.
I unpicked the seams, removed the pocket and threads and rubbed the holes that were in the fabric from the stitching. The rubbing pushes the fibres of the fabric together and gets rid of the stitching marks.
I cut the pieces to shape and got to work
I created cuffs from the t shirt
My serger was already threaded with olive green thread so I used it to finish off the seams.
One of the shirts used parts of the original sleeves.
The first crop top with a reconstructed collar
And the second crop top with parts from a t shirt and parts of the men's button down shirt
Of course there were lots of remnants left over
Which together with the shirt pocket became another pocket amulet
