quick fix

6.26.2010


Here's a quick fix that I just had to make.  I had gotten some plain tank tops from Old Navy earlier this summer with the intention of making something cool with them.  So grab some of your cutest scraps and make patches!  And if you think you don't have enough cute scraps, do what I did and order some.  I broke down and got some of the sought after Heather Ross munki munki prints from a shop on etsy (which is all out as of now), but you can still find some here and here


Now if I could only prevent ice cream and popsicles from spilling all over these puppies we'd be in business!

{I also added a smaller patch at the back of shirt, just for fun!}

I have one more tank top refashion coming up for next week, so I'll just keep you on your toes for that one. 


p.s. i love my hydrangeas, wish they would stay this way forever...

  5. Oh, absolute love! Especially the bicycle print one. I made a pillow for Hannah log cabin style centered around that same bike! :)

    I am SO doing this to some of my kids shirts!

  9. very, very cute Anna! your hydrangeas are beautiful! is it acidic soil that makes them more purpley? or do I have that backwards?
