Buttons lace and soft grey knit fabric all make for happiness

In keeping with my year of no shopping pledge, a recycled singlet gets a new life with handmade details. An old singlet from Muji was looking tired around the neckline and sleeves so I cut off the old neckline and hand sewed on a crocheted one I had made ages ago and some new cotton lace sleeve edging. The buttons are from a button making kit I got at Daiso and covered with some striped cotton pillow case fabric I re-purposed.
