Oh Man! It's been a LONG time since I've posted anything on here. I really haven't done any crafting since Nov. 2010 because life kinda started rolling downhill for me for a bit. First I got sick, went to the ER, missed Thanksgiving, found out it was just too much acid in my system causing all my pain. But I have tons of digestive issues and took months to work through had to be on a bland diet for two months! Uck. Then in March I fell and separated my shoulder that took months to heal so finally I'm getting back into some normalcy and crafting
Yay! (also lately I've been working on redoing my blog/etsy/prints and website)
This project I'm about to share was completed before all this &*%$ hit the fan LOL!
I found this awesome shirt at Goodwill, didn't like the shirt but loved the pattern! I've done something similar to this before (http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=342528.msg3977471#msg3977471
) so when I saw it I knew exactly what I wanted to do with it!
Since there was only so much material the top turned out a little shorter than I wanted but it's great for layering
Another little side note, the necklace and pendants I'm wearing were also made by me. Great thing is the chain is actually a chain from an old beat up vintage purse I also found at Goodwill. It's a snake chain and all I did was change the ends to make it into a necklace. I like to wear it doubled up and sometimes I add pendants and sometimes I don't
Thanks for looking! Looking forward to getting back into the groove of things soon
