Martianed Up-cycled Blouse

I had a blouse I bought at Target, then got lost in Pinterest. What’s Pinterest you ask? It’s my kryptonite. I get lost in there if I’m not searching for anything specific. Don’t get lost in there folks, it’s crazy sauce!

This was the idea I saw:

I decided to do something different. This is the shirt I had on hand and the yarn I wanted to use:

I decided I want to cut the back out of this shirt and go from there. BUT NOTE: If you are deciding whether you want to do this or not PLEASE crochet the piece first THEN do your cutting, to make sure the piece is the right size!!!

As noted, the crochet pieces were made first then tacked on to the shirt:

Then the sewing started. Not easy since you have to make sure the sewing doesn’t cause the shirt to bunch. I used my mannequin to accomplish this and doing so slowly which is very rewarding!

This is the finished work:
