by This is Carrie on August 13, 2008

It’s so much fun to revamp old boxy T -shirts. If you don’t have a baby to spoil with a refashion, go ahead and make something for yourself.

your shirt looks great but if that is you modeling it after a 9 lb. baby I’m even more impressed! Maybe I should start biking

I think I want to do this…I seem to keep throwing out old boxy t-shirts that I love.

Yes that is my modeling the shirt, but the picture was taken long before i was pregnant with #3. My stomach is not quite so flat anymore (but I actually have some boobs now!)

I’ll personally never be able to look at that shirt without thinking of you and your huge roll of cash. It was the contrast between the shirt and the drug money… (okay, yard sale money, but whatever…)

Hello! I wanted to try and download your PDF for this tutorial but i’m getting the notification that the site you link to is harmful for the computer (malware, trojan virus etc…).

I did notice this was a tutorial from 2008. Do you have the file somewhere else that I can download?

Thank You!!

So sorry. I just found out the site that was hosting all my pdf’s is defunct. I am trying to move all of them over to a new hosting site now. This one has been moved and the link is updated. It’s not my best tutorial, but hopefully you’ll get the idea from my really rough sketches.
