… I knew immediately I would use it for a t-shirt…

… at the Belgian bloggers swap, Jo had a couple of old baby blankets she was offering to a new home, double layers of soft jersey, I took the green and turquoise one…

… back home, looking at t-shirt patterns, I printed out the Kirsten Kimono tee, it was going to be perfect…

… then, procrastinating one day and I stumbled on this gorgeous t-shirt

… yesterday afternoon I took out the tiny scraps left over from my pyjamas turned scout, and laid out the sleeves of the Dixie DIY hot cocoa sweater on them… I could get a pair of short sleeves from what I had left…

… they were cut out, then I cut a green front and a turquoise back from a combination of the hot cocoa and the scout, using the raglan sleeves and neckline from the former and the length and hemline from the latter. I sewed them up, added a green neck band, top stitched the neck down and sewed the hem with my fabulous double needle…

… if (when?) I make another one of these I will make the sleeves wider, this pair are a bit tight on my upper arms, but I still love it…

… so, thank you Jo for the fabric, and see, Margot, there was enough fabric to make a t-shirt!
