On the Brink of a Burnout

Hi! :D Long time crafty chick, relatively recent member of t_shirt_surgery, and today took some ideas from the comm and performed an (I think) successful surgery on an old favorite.

I haven't posted in a while, but I've certainly been making a bunch of stuff. Here's one I made for a graduation party with my fam. I used the  bottom half of a too-small tee and fabric from an adorable pillow case.

That is all.
