Lace T-Shirt Embroidered Hoop

If you can’t wear it… use it.

I had this wonderful cream t-shirt that I loved to wear… until a hole appeared. Dang it. It was super cute and comfy and it had this sweet lace accent. I knew I couldn’t give it away or sell it so I was about to throw it away…

Then my inner DIY-er pulled it out of the trash and an idea was born.

LaceTHoop1Because of it’s cream color and it’s pretty lace detail, I thought it would make a cute embroidery base.

I grabbed an embroidery hoop, a needle, some thread, wax paper and a pencil and started sketching some ideas.

Once I had my final drawing, I drew it on the wax paper and laid it onto top of the piece of t-shirt in the embroidery hoop.

And while you are taking pictures of it, this might happen to you too…
