collars & cats, with a side of crazy

Inspired by this genius, I went to one of our local thrift stores and took advantage of the 20 t-shirts for $2.00 deal. (No doubt you've already done the math in your head by now and figured that they cost 20 cents each.)

I picked 20 that I liked. Some are old. Some are tacky. Most have stains. But, with a pair of scissors, awesome inspiration, and kids who are asleep (because it is 2 in the morning... uh, how'd that happen?!?!) I had a blast making these:

This little tunic looks joyous because some dunce sewed the arms on wrong. Oh well, yay anyway!

Can't wait to see it on her. (I figure I'll tell folks that the shirt is saying "yay" because it only cost 20 cents!)


And then I swore that I would not sew arms on wrong again and started another project (who needs sleep anyway, right?)

The same dunce who sewed the sleeves on the blue tunic wrong also forgot to take before pictures of the shirts, so she took after pictures of the scraps. Note the stain on the orange t-shirt. Also, the black and white stripe shirt was from Ann Taylor. It was a little hard to take the scissors to that one. There wasn't a thing wrong with it.


Kitty says I need to go to bed, but she is glad I rescued her from the thrift store. She says thanks for not sparing the Ann Taylor tee and sewing her to such a quality shirt.

ps- 60 cents total cost
