This post is a day early so I don’t forget to grab a picture of myself tomorrow to share. We’re off to the amusement park for the holiday. I’d like to take a moment to thank all the men and women who have given their time and their lives protecting our great country.
I upcycled one of my hubby’s t-shirts that he didn’t wear anymore for my red, white and blue attire. The shirt already had the American Flag painted on it. I wish I’d thought of taking a picture of this earlier. I entered this contest at Skirt Fixation with three other projects and this one would’ve been perfect! I made it almost the same way I made the Witchblade upcycle that I shared yesterday. I made little bands to hold the top two ties together and I didn’t do a tie back. This t-shirt has little stretch and wasn’t big enough to do that. I left the bottom hem on and pulled the fabric towards the front and secured it with an American Flag pin I had lying around.
I hope you can also see my button earrings and necklace. I found these buttons in one of the huge button collections my Father-in-Law bought me earlier this Spring. I’m about to work on some possible shoes to wear with all of the red, white and blue.
Hope you all have a happy and safe Independence Day.
