All this free time on my hands lately has afforded me the luxury of being able to do something with them! I've been on this revamp/destroy-things-in-my-closet kick lately. It's fun!

I've had some failures, though. I tried this braided-neck tee DIY (on two tee shirts) and it failed (both times). Alas. I also attempted to straight-up create a shirt pattern, wasting two more shirts-worth of fabric. (Don't worry, it's not really wasted. I'll find something else to create with it.)
Even though they didn't turn out the way I wanted them to, the time spent was pleasant, therefore not wasted.

Now, for the successes.
I had this boring old tan scarf that I decided to spice up with some Sharpies.
I colored a splash of florals in the center, and some geometric coolness around the edges. I went ahead and wore it, but I knew it wasn't finished yet. See all that boring, empty, tan space? The other day I pulled it out and sat down to finish it, filling in the rest of the empty space. Tada!
I'm quite pleased.

This project isn't as exciting, but I fixed a shirt hem I wasn't pleased with.

 Now, the most recent project: I had this pink tank top embellished with little ruffle flowers around the neck. It looked funny on me. I cut off the flowers and decided it needed stripes. Hello, acrylic paint and painter's tape.
After a journey through the washer and dryer, the black was a little less striking and had aquired a fuzzy grey tone, which I actually like a lot. Success!

Cute, right?


  1. Whoa, cool! I can't believe that scarf was decorated with Sharpies. Nice work, crafty girl!


YAY! I'm so glad you're leaving a comment. ^.^
