Re-using old T-Shirts to make a skirt

I am an avid follower of maya*made, a blog about crafting with sustainable and recycled materials. I purchased her pattern for the Reinvention Skirt on Etsy, and tried it out today with an old pink T-Shirt.

I created a "lettuce edging" on the hem using a ziz zag stitch, stretching as I went, and letting the stitch fall just off the edge of the fabric. Simple, and cute! Here is a close up:

I learned a lot this first time around, but all things considered, I think it turned out quite well! My daughter likes it, and even seems to like the matching headband I made from the T-Shirt's sleeve.

Thank you Maya!
