Hector the Smoke Detector needed saving himself...

Queens, New York...






This is refashion of an old shirt my boyfriend loved but was going to throw away because it didn’t fit him anymore…

Instead of giving to the Salvo, I cut off the front of the shirt, bought a recycled cotton tee that fit and some embroidery floss in a nice contrasting color. I simply pressed the edges over with the iron, pinned it to the new shirt and whip-stitched around it! Tada! Brand new t-shirt!

It did this a while ago and finally got around to uploading it.

Material Notes
