I’ve been on a reconstructed clothing kick lately, and of course you know we here at DSC are always looking for new ways to use doilies.  Over at the Craft blog, Jessica Wilson shares how to use a doily as a shoulder accent to dress up an old shirt.  It’s got that flirty-in-a-grandma-kind-of-way thing going on that I’m so fond of lately and would look great with my awesome orthopedic-looking vintage shoes from Goodwill!  (Do I sound like a fashion disaster right now?  I swear I’m not!)  She also shows how to tint your doilies using Kool-aid packets, just in case white isn’t your thing.  [how to make a doily-sleeved t-shirt]

Project estimate:

  • T-shirt, on hand
  • Doilies, $1 and up
  • Sewing machine, on hand

Total:  $1 and up
