Issue: 65, 2015

Hello Petal by Joanne Scrace

Joanne Scrace gets us summer-ready with a fab upcycled garment.

Lazy Daisy Sun Top
Upcycle an oversized t-shirt to make this gorgeous sun top or dress.

Adding a crochet yoke to a t-shirt gives a modern twist and, as t-shirt fabric doesn’t fray once cut, this project needs minimal sewing
skills and preparation.
