DIY Color Block Top

I think color block tops are so adorable.
Since we don't get out much I decided I'd make one while the boy napped.
It was nice to get out my sewing machine and do a little project, it's been a while.

So I rummaged through my closet and found these 2 old American Apparel T's.
I haven't worn them in ages, they needed a little face lift.

This was an easy peasy project so if you are a beginner seamstress this is a perfect sewing project for you.
All you need is:
2 tops
sewing machine

And all you do is:

And there you have it. Easy right? It only took me about 30 minutes.

  4. NICE!! I'm so doing this tomorrow...maybe! I wish my child would sleep long enough for me to sew ANYTHING though. I bought supplies to sew a new blanket the other day but she doesn't give me any time to get my sew on. Super cute though Allyssa, you look great!
