Found it

Thanks for all your help in the t-shirt to shorts department.
I eventually found the link I was looking for on how to turn this, if you look closely on the right hand side of the shirt you can see where I have traced around a pair of shorts as a template


into these


Well, they are nearly finished as I'm having rethreading the spool problems again ! I've rethreaded 3 times making sure the thread is even and it's definately in the case anti clockwise but is still not sewing properly! I'm going to have another go tonight when I'm not so frustrated ! The t-shirt is actually orange and not a pinky colour too.

Before I go I found a new Blog yesterday Mama De Saga is on a sewing mission over the summer- I'm sure she'd appreciate you stopping by and saying hello.

Wow what a transformation. I am going to get the teens to try this at Rangers rather than trying myself as I am a totally disaster with a machine. Thanks for the link.

What a clever idea! I'm going to bookmark the link so thanks for that! Lucyx

Oh that's so clever! They look great, don't they?

I feel for you on the thread issue - sewing machine problems are one of the things which drives me maddest, quickest. Hope you get it sorted. x

That's amazing, they look wonderful. I hate sewing machine problems, they make me want to just walk away from my sewing.

I hate sewing machine 'issues'. Mine was recently on the fritz and my hubby 'fixed' it for me. When I got back to have a little sew it would only sew in reverse. Jen

That's a seriously nifty trick! As a person who's baffled by sewing machines at the best of times I think this is brilliant.

Hope you solve the thread problem.
