(Day 18 of the blogging blitz. If you’ve just joined us, I’m on a mission to get that ol’ blogging mojo back by attempting to post daily for 30 days.)
Day 18 already. The end is somewhat in sight, yay!
A few days ago, Sam from Hungry Dog tagged me in a meme (which I will attempt soon, sorry it’s taking so long Sam). Part of the “rules” was to reveal more about yourself, and when I read the list posted on her blog, I realised I shared a similarity with her. We find it incredibly hard to get rid of something if it’s still usable.
Which goes some way to explaining why I have been hanging on to a couple of very sad tank tops. One had holes on the front, and the other had a little oil stain in a very obvious place (I’m a bit of a klutz). But I just couldn’t bear to throw them out because, well, they were comfy. I loved my comfy tops.
True confession time: I have actually worn the holey one out of the house (sad but true)
No matter how comfy they were though, it wasn’t much good if I couldn’t wear them.
Today I took a deep breath, and a pair of scissors, to them.
Chop, chop here and a chop, chop there
Ok, I admit I sew like I cook. I kinda don’t follow the rules, and usually just wing it. Sooo...the stitching is a bit wobbly, but hey, at least I can wear this out of the house (I think).
By the way, I didn’t realise just how many T-shirt DIYers and Upcyclers there were out there. Just google and you’ll see what I mean. The most jaw-droppingly awesome stuff I’ve seen so far though, has to be at Trash to couture. Go check it out!
