Before and After: Altered Men's Deer Shirt

Before and After: Altered Men'd Deer Shirt
I snagged this t-shirt for about 5 cents at a rummage sale to raise money for my friend's summer mission trip. It was a "stuff everything in a bag for a $1 sale". To create this slouchy summer tee I used another shirt as a pattern then cut and sewed this little guy in probably less than 15 minutes. I decided to give the back a little jazz by adding a seem right down the middle. I was very pleased with the way it turned out!

Here are some of the other goodies I snagged at the sale!
Anybody know exactly what that Tupperware thing is on the far right? Those I have asked about it think it's a large clip or bookmark but I think it's gotta be something else.

    And aren't rummage sales the greatest?? I love finding old books and nick-knacks. It looks like you find some keepers!
