Shrugalicious-- No Sewing Involved




ASPTL


Here’s another project for Do-It-Yourself Day at A Soft Place to Land.

Since I spent most of the summer recovering from being dragged by the dog, I had to wear long sleeves to keep my wounds out of the sun. Problem was, it was painful to pull long sleeved shirts over my head. Once again, my Do-It-Yourself project was really done by someone else, this time my fabulous sister.

She took a long sleeved Old Navy shirt of mine, sliced it right up the front hem to collar, then cut it short around the back leaving 2 long tabs in the front. She didn't even use my nice scissors. Instant shrug! It was much easier to take on and off than a regular shirt, and when I washed it, it didn’t fray. It just got a little curled around the edges, which I like.



My arm is much better, but I still like my little shrug. It makes me feel very Flash Dance-y or Fame-y or even a little Yoga-ish.

Be sure to check out the other projects at Kimba’s place!

Why does it not fray? I have a feeling that if I do this, it will fray. Tell me your non-fraying secret, oh wise one.
