Tee Shirt Recon

Not long ago my son came home with a big rip in his shirt - he said he caught it on someone's locker. I kept thinking about how to fix it but nothing came to mind. Last week an idea hit - I could make a project bag! A few swipes with my rotary cutter and a run through the sewing machine and I had this:

It's big enough to hold a good-sized knitting or crochet project. I made a second one out of my oldest and most favorite Marilyn tee but the cat wouldn't get out of the way long enough for me to take a picture. I'm always glad to have places to hold my projects. Speaking of the cat, he and I had a bit of an accident the other day. He was trying to go somewhere he shouldn't. I started to shoo him and wound up with a size 13 steel crochet hook through my finger. It really freaked me and Khloe out. Thankfully it didn't bleed! Kerry called Eric's mom to take me to the emergency room to get it removed. It's my pinkie, so I won't be working with yarn for a few days because I use that finger for tensioning. Right now, two days later, I have a hole in my finger and lots of bruising and swelling. Kerry told me that he thought I was crying because of the ice dancing on television until he looked down. I missed the last three performances, darn it. I learned my lesson, though - use the water sprayer to shoo the cat, not my hand! And no, I didn't take pictures. It was too icky. Yes, the cat felt bad. He's been rather nice to me, not doing his usual biting as affection. That's all for today! Have a wonderful Wednesday!

I think this is the best thing you could have done with that old tee! I'm so sorry about you pinkie, cats! Don't get me started!
