Lelly is a crafty vegan!

Well kinda. I also speak in the third person apparently. Meh.

Anyhoo, I've got loads of t shirts that don't fit me or are just meh, and I've always fancied adapting them so I'll actually wear them, so I did. I took my old pink herbivore t shirt (the one less meat eater one) and, well, cut it up and put it back together with bits on.I made it into a halter top and added buttons. The buttons are partly for decorative purposes and partly to (kind of) cover the stitching where I sewed the straps on. It's all fairly shoddily made, but it was stitched by hand, cos I'm a poor student and we don't have the moneez for sewing machines, so considering that it's not too bad. It's also squinty in parts, but I'm going to blame that on my atrocious eye sight (uh huh). Just so you know quite how anal I am, the buttons were white, but I hand painted them pink. Indeed.

Here's another shot of it (I am aware that at this point, this mainly becomes me posting close ups of my boobs, but shh)

Love it, love it, LOVE IT!

I am of the crafty sort too, and my daughter has several shirts I know she'd love to have a little "help" redecorating...

I am just immensely impressed!

My mom told me I had to come here and see your shirt. It is the coolest thing I have ever seen someone make.

I am so totally going to do this. Maybe with my PE class uniform shirt. I wonder if they would notice.
