Have you noticed the trends in the stores lately? All the fabric-accessorized shirts and cardigans. I'm loving them, but not loving the prices. For example, at Ann Taylor Loft, just a plain-ol t-shirt that had a couple extra rosettes thrown on there was $35-50! I kept walking around the store snapping pictures with my camera phone (see below), thinking, "I could do that!!"
So I went home and grabbed a short-sleeved sweater that I hadn't worn in a long time - because I just didn't like it that much - and grabbed some white fabric remnants and started designing my own "trendy" shirt. Now this once-drab Old Navy sweater that I never wore, has become a new favorite. And whenever I wear it, I get several comments about where I bought it! This was just a test run, but now that I feel a bit more confident with the concept, I'm totally going to get a bunch of cheap t-shirts and spruce em up for spring with my own fun designs. Do I hear a craft night a-brewin? Who's with me??
