making a skirt with your t-shirts

this is an example of how how i transformed a few shirts into a cool skirt.

my colorful friend, Astra, sent me a handful of her precious old bob marley tshirts.bob16

i decided to use some yellow dye to change the blue into a better reggae tone, and also brighten up a tired white shirt.  by cutting out and appliqueing another image to a red shirt, i could then incorporate the symbolic colors of the rasta.bob-shirts1
