CRAFT: Chevron Stamped Tee
I've gotten braver with making things for myself lately. It's kind of nice when I make something and get to keep it for myself (which really doesn't happen much), but I usually have the unfortunate tendency of being a clumsy crafter. Every project begins optimistically enough but by the time I'm getting close to being finished, I discover that I've managed to sew the thing inside out or I have a seam with holes in it, or it somehow has an extra sleeve or something. I haven't done that last one YET, but I'm anticipating the inevitable.
Take this shirt for example. Easy enough project, but I made the rookie mistake of forgetting to put cardboard inside my shirt so the paint wouldn't leak. As soon as I finished, I was really happy with the shirt....until I saw the blue paint splotches on the back. So of course, like any exhausted half-crazed crafter would do, I put straight bleach on the paint spots. Consequently, did you know straight bleach eats through clothing?
Me neither, until now that is.
In conclusion: make an awesome chevron stamped shirt with me, but please remember to put something inside of your shirt. And also don't put straight bleach on stuff. I hear it jacks clothing up ;)
Wasn't that so easy? Now wear and show off your awesomely awkward modeling poses. I'm working on that.
