really awesome tee for a dollar and change. i really liked the drawing, and the fact that it says "wildlife guardians" on it. but, alack it was a wee bit too big. i am so sad being so far away from my sewing machine. i'm up in chicago for college, while she sits unused in my bedroom in texas. i want to mod up my shirts, but i won't be back till june, and i'd miss all of spring! so i brush up on my no sew skills and do this with it:

love it! the only thing is that i can't wear a bra with it! so it's gonna end up a swimsuit cover shirt, or i'll wear a tank and bra under it for classes. so excited!

That is really cool!  How did you do the back?

Also, where in Texas are you from, if you don't mind me asking?

yeah. i saw it there. i've made shirts with the sides tied before (popular with the counselors out at camp with me,) but i thought since it was a halter, it would look best tied in the back. there's a tutorial at http://ohmystars.net/craft/index.htm under the slash back.

i'm from dallas.

and then my roommate wanted me to make her one, so i did.

and then the girl from down the hall wanted one, and i made it.

and then another girl, i don't know, wanted one, and i said i should start charging....

that got her to back off.

ah, the downside to being crafty and living in a dorm. i did teach my roommate how to knit, so she doesn't ask me to make her anything anymore.

I have ALWAYS hated that, people begging me to make them clothes and stuff like I'd made for myself.  I always suggest that if they wanted something, they learn to make it themselves, or pay me a ridiculous amount for it.  Isnt' it cooler to make something sweet and then when someone says "Where did you get that?", you say "I made it!"   I dunno, maybe I'm just a glory hog, or a jerk.  Or both.

I LOVE when that happens. Is that truly being a glory hog? If so...then I must be one.
