I wanted to add some leather to my wardrobe, but my budget has been very limited lately. When I saw this leather pocket t-shirt DIY at In Honor of Design, I knew it would be the perfect inexpensive way to try out the leather trend.
I went to Target and spent a whole six dollars on this t-shirt, and went no further than my couch for the leather. Before you start imagining pocket-shaped holes in my furniture, I’ll reassure you that it came from a scrap underneath a cushion.
This DIY was incredibly easy to do, and the only challenge I had was trying to sew straight stitches in the thick leather. If you look closely you’ll see that I didn’t quite succeed in that area. If you do this I’d recommend finding a thin piece of leather or faux leather.
Thanks Anna for another awesome DIY idea!

Since I got this t-shirt for such a bargain, I’m linking up to The Tiny Heart and The Penniless Socialite for “Look What I Got.”
