Someone save me from the armwarmer addiction!
Okay, first of all, there's this shirt:
Which, as you can see from the photo, is an awesome shirt. However, I've had it for forever and I'd lost it for a little while. When I found it again (it was beside the washer), it had some Bleach damage on it. And had a few holes in the back near the bottom. So, I held on to it...
Better view of the discoloration...
Well, I was reading about doing Bleach designs on shirts, and thought, "Hey! I could do that! And then it would make the discoloration around the design invisible! So I did, and then I hacked it up and made these:
Abstract diluted bleach splattering (it made the blue turn pink, which is kind of cute, but didn't harm the dragon!), plus black thread and sewing machine = Awesome armwarmers that are one of a kind!
The second one is a little different. Take this thermal shirt:
I LOVE the front of this shirt, and I love the thermal material. Love it. Would wear it ALL the time in the winter if I could. It's warm, it's snuggly, it's just tight enough to be unfrumpy. There's one problem though..
I've always hated the sleeves. For one thing, I'm not fond of the design. For another thing, long sleeves bug me (which is why I make armwarmers!)-- I always end up with my sleeves pushed up to my elbows if I wear long sleeves, and they still drive me absolutely bonkers! So, I said bye-bye to the sleeves on my lovely thermal shirt...
And made super-long thermal armwarmers! I still haven't decided what I'm going to do with the rest of the shirt. I've though about taking red sleeves out of something else and attaching them, and maybe a hood? Dunno yet. Any ideas?
