re-purposed men’s shirt

This week has been a bit hectic with little time for creative things. It’s a garage sale weekend. I hate garage sales. The house feels like mass chaos as you’re going through everything and piling it up for pricing. I don’t function well in that kind of clutter. I guess the feeling of purging, though, makes up for it.

However, yesterday, in the midst of the chaos, I remembered several half finished projects and thought, “Surely I can finish just one.” I’ll tell you, even a minute of a creativity, is soothing to the soul. Stepping away for just a moment has a way of clearing the mind.

I saw this idea to re-purpose a men’s button down shirt in an issue of Sew It All. While I love the concept and the shirt in the photo, I’m still trying to decide if I like mine (and also if I should re-do the ric rac since I didn’t really follow those instructions too well). It just sort of fits like a men’s shirt. Nevertheless, it will be another good one to have for Africa.
