Secret Pocket T Shirts



I have debated for a long time about posting these shirts. I didn't want anyone to know the secret held against my breast. But now, I am throwing caution to the wind and saying "what the hell?"  I mean, I've never put anything other than a little cash in the secret pocket, so it's not like I'm giving away anything big.


This the first one I made. I had a problem with two of my favorite t-shirts. The grey shirt developed a hole in the front. My boyfriend bequeathed me the green Kurt Cobain one, but it was made out some horrible overheating, sweat inducing fabric. 


I did a messy cross-stitch around the edge, except for one corner where I just did the stitching on the Cobain fabric leaving a small opening for the pocket. I could've just left it with the hole in the back, but I didn't want it to get bigger and it would be pretty awkward getting anything out of it.



I love pockets so much, especially secret ones, so I made another one. This one I did with a fancy stitch on my sewing machine and started with the secret opening so I wouldn't have to struggle getting the fabric under the machine. I loved the color of the main shirt, but it had a graphic on it that I wasn't fond of. My Tank Girl shirt was always a little tight across the chest and as much as I loved to wear it, it just wasn't comfortable. You can see this shirt before I destroyed it here.
