Okay, so we started with a Goodwill sweater tank top scored for $3 in a size that deterred all temptation of dressing like Mariah Carey.
First, turn the sweater inside out, pin the bottom together and stitch it shut.
Clip all loose threads. If your machine does not have reverse, knot the ends. Yes. I have a fancy machine with reverse. Be impressed.
Turn it right side out. Here's the fun part. Since this was a knit sweater, I simply folded the top inside, squared it off, and pinned it. This would prevent the unravelling that might occur if you cut the knit.
I did try stitching through this with my machine, but I broke 2 needles within 6 inches, so I whip stitched it shut.
Leave a pocket open and stuff. Finish whipping that stitch.
Yeah, pure glamor. I love it. It's going on the pile on my bed once the bedroom redo is done.
Wait. The bedroom redo?
