Quick sewing project
I bought THIS tank top last week with the intentions of adding a ruffle or flowers of some sort. I've been itching to sew it ever since. So, last night we got home around 8 and I cut and hand sewed flowers while we watched a funny movie (Wild Hogs to be exact). I finished the flowers in two hours (which is an accomplishment for me) and sewed them on this morning before work. I actually made five flowers total, but when I pinned on all five they laid awkward down the front, so I applied my "less is more" theory and went with three. I'm pretty happy with how it turned out and I'm REALLY happy that I used a flannel shirt that we found at "The Rummage" back in February (a store went out of business and we grabbed all the nice stuff that had been put on the curb). So total cost for this shirt, $5. Compared to THIS one at $58 (rough comparison I agree, but similarly embellished).
