Upcycle: Shirt With Insert



Granddaughter Mia needed a black shirt for school, so I "shopped" in the "Give Away" pile in my closet! The end result is an "Upcycled", one-of-a-kind, shirt with insert that cost $0.00! Now, go shopping in your closet! Pictures and detailed instructions are included for this "Sew-Easy" project.
