I know. I know. I just did a Dachshund refashion.
“Slow your roll, crazy dog lady!”, you’re probably saying.
What can I say? Inspiration strikes where and when it strikes!
I thrifted this sweatshirt years ago and have worn it a TON.
It’s super pilled up now, and I’m kind of over the whole cut-off neck/Flashdance vibe. I couldn’t bring myself to re-donate it though…because…Dachshunds. 🙂
Instead, I grabbed this boy’s T-shirt that I thrifted for the magical price of free!
Prepare yourself to be jealous, friends!
Is that not just buck wild? And this is the same thrift store that used to sell all of their clothing for 50 cents apiece (sadly, they have doubled their prices to $1)!
All of a sudden, a plan was born!
I carefully cut out my dachshund, leaving some of the purple around the edge.
Then, I pinned my doxie to the front of my T-shirt, overlapping the pocket a bit (because I think it looks cool that way).
I carefully stitched my appliqué down (You’ll want to turn down the speed on your machine for this, friends).
And just like that, I can now advertise my Dachshund fandom with pride!
I ended up wearing my new T-shirt to the vet (Benson needed a nail trim), and undoubtedly looked like a Crazy Dog Lady. 😉
