Found a really cool tee on sale at Target, in my favorite purple color, and pink scripty writing. It was also, alas... to big.  Not anymore!

Embroidered it, chopped off the top, turned it into a cross wrap, and then trimmed down the bottom, and braided the extra fabric to make the halter ties! Here's a detail of the machine embroidery...

as you can see, I also sewed real bling onto the shirt I got off a funky earring I bought. Just to add that little extra.

In case you're wondering what the tee looked like before, here's small photo:

Me being sad because it's too big. It tugs at the heartstrings, doesn't it?

Rockin my new halter and soo ready for warm weather! We had our first March in Minnesota with no snow in 135 years. I'm beginning to believe that maybe winter is really over. Woot!

That is awesome! I love the added charms, I actually had to do a double-take to see what was on the shirt & what was added!

Okay so once again I am completely redoing my pictures. Got tired of photobucket, the only reason I used it was for here so I decided I will just use Craftster's photo uploader. So while I am switching over my photo links will be broken. Message me if there is a post you would like the pics for.
