$5.00 Workout Shirt (Tutorial)


I was in dire need of some new workout shirts. I have a bunch but… unfortunately they are too small. So I found a great deal on fabric at Joann’s this weekend and got to work. The fabric started at $5.99 and at 50% off It was $3.59 and I scored some matching thread for $1.31 (using my 40% off coupon) so all totaled up my shirt cost me $4.90!!!!!!!!! Seriously!! I couldn’t buy this shirt for less than $10 if it was name brand and at an outlet store on a major holiday. I am so excited about it I already made 2 shirts with 3 more in the near future. Hee hee! Alright enough of me chatting… On to the tutorial.

Feeling Tribal

I have had this fabric for about year now and could never decide what to make with it. Well my inspiration came when Andy got me a SERGER for my birthday!!! I am in heaven! I was trying to decide if I needed one or not for a long time. I read a lot of blogs that said “if you sew with knits get a serger.” Basically all I ever do is sew with knits. On occasion I will venture into the world of more slippery fabrics but the majority is knit. I just love my serger to death. I busted out two skirts last night with it. I will write a tutorial on how to make this skirt very soon. In the meantime just enjoy the fall colors and the sweater on my legs. 🙂
