April craftLAB Recap: T-Shirt Reconstruction!

Posted by Crystal Pepperdine, Founder and Executive Director of Flint Handmade

We had a great time at Buckham Gallery reconstructing t-shirts with Christa Irons of Ms. Christa's Rockin' Accessories!

Christa wore her reconstructed Flint Handmade shirt to crafLAB. 

She showed Theresa (l) and Nicole how to transform their regular t-shirts into scoop neck shirts with cap sleeves.

Mary cut and pinned her shirt and started sewing right away.

Mary finished quickly and modeled her shirt by a piece of art at Buckham Gallery.

Christa assisted Monica with sewing her shirt.

Toe used Christa's serger to sew her scoop neck without pinning.

Toe was all smiles in her modified shirt!

Christa helped Nicole with pinning her shirt and sewing on Flint Handmades' new-to-us sewing machine.

Theresa (l) and her daughter, Nicole, showed off their cute new shirts.

Special thanks to Buckham Gallery for hosting craftLAB.

In May 2012, we will be back at the The Lunch Studio for craftLAB to learn the coiled papercraft known as quilling

We hope to see you there!


  1. Another very fun lab! Next month's sounds interesting - I'm sad I'm going to miss it, but I'll be looking for the blog post! <3 Ali
