Big to Small

As the title says, I took something huge and made it into something small and cute.

Before it was this rather large sized t-shirt I had gotten at a thrift store.  It came with several other items for a grand total of $1.  I liked the flower stitching on the front, but the stain at the shoulder was a problem and it was too big for anyone in my family.  That’s what scissors are for, right?

Here’s the updated list:
  • Bag
  • Cuffs
  • Bookshelves
  • Books
  • Magazines
  • Poncho
  • Table
  • Desk chair
  • Chair
  • End table
  • Lamps
  • Capelet
  • Headbands
  • Globe
  • Rug
  • Curtains
Four down, twelve to go.  I’m going to try to finish  rest of the list in the exact order now, but I can’t promise anything.
