I had a thrifted tank that I wanted to alter, and I decided to applique on it, but I didn't go about it all that well, and I ended up ruining part of the front.  It was only a small part, thankfully, but it was beyond saving, so I set aside the shirt to ponder what to do with it instead.

This morning, I had the lightbulb moment.  I'd stumbled across this tutorial recently and wanted to try it, but I hadn't thought to try it with clothing!

Thankfully, a few weeks ago I'd organized all my scraps by color and stashed them neatly, so it didn't take me long to decide what to use and get started.  Just under three hours later, I had my fab new top!  I love it, and I'm definitely going to do this again soon.

For reference, the original:

Very well done. Much better than the original.

I love this.  Now I know what I can do with the tank tops that have a stain.  You know we all have them, stained so we won't wear them, but we can't bear to throw them out either.
