I'm really excited to share this shirt. For once I've actually made something that I will wear! In public! Squee!
Okay, enough of that.
This shirt started out life as two white shirts. both of them I wore often and one just wasn't white enough anymore, so I banished it to the rag bag. The other I was wearing to work last week when I spilled coffee down the front of it. I don't want to talk anymore about that.
After seeing such cute flowery/ruffly tops repurposed from other shirts at Hope Studios and Tea Rose Home, I decided to give my tired white shirts a second chance.
I found the tutorial for the flowers at Tea Rose Home, but I just made circles instead of the heart shape.
Then I purchased an inexpensive fabric dye and dyed the "new" shirt in a pot on my stove.
I'm in love. Probably just because i'm ridiculously proud of myself, but that's cool too.
Total cost for my "new" shirt: $1.66 (for the dye). Not bad!
