A Not So Fast Makeover



I purchased the black t-shirt for $6.99.


 The striped t-shirt was $2.99 and it matched my black and white striped skirt perfectly.
So I made this...


 

...so what do you think?  I think I love it!  But, it took me as long to remake these t-shirts as it took to make my Easter dress...makeovers are not a quick and easy job.  And I can't do a tutorial, because it was all trial and error! :D

I have joined something that is new to me.  It's called Family In Faith Blog Hop.  It's done by Lady in the Skirt.  Check them out, you might like it!


Have a great day!!!

Hugs, Cindy

Hi Cindy,
You did it again, you always amaze me with your creativeness. You should be a clothing designer...
I love window boxes too and had then outside hanging on the fench around the porch at our last house. I brought the boxes with me, but still have not planted in them..I think maybe this weekend might be a good weekend to have Gary hang them under the windows for me...it being Mothers Day weekend and all...LOL.
Have a sweet day my friend and big hugs, Elizabeth
