GEARING UP FOR AN EASY DIY PROJECT

 Last night a cold front moved through north Texas, and we awakened to glorious fall like weather!   Cooler weather always puts me in the mood for a craft project, so I’m busy dragging out my t-shirt collection to make something today.

This is a jacket Jane just blogged that I made of recycled t-shirts.  I love to work with old t-shirts–I don’t know why really.

I love bleaching them down a little, then matching up colors.  These soft purples are so pretty!

If Shelly is looking a little embarrassed, it’s because of her new hair cut.  She doesn’t like it.

Wearing my Giuseppe Zanotti sandals purchased in Paris.  Giuseppe is just about one of my favorite shoe designers.

 

T-shirt flowers.

If all goes well, I’ll share the results tomorrow!  Wish me luck….

    i’m always a fan of your DIYs so i look forward to seeing this one! the colors do look lovely, and i can see the appeal in working with old tees- they’re so soft and comforting.

    an off-topic question, but do you know what paint color is on your walls in these photos? i love it.

    could you please explain the ‘bleaching down’ process. Bleaching can get out of hand sometimes but that stack of Ts looks very nice and subtle.

    Hi there
    I like the way you can see things as “material” for something new…………..it’s a rare ability.
