New and Improved

Another project finished, Yay!  For this one, I went through my closet and found pieces I thought could use a little sparkle.  Then added a touch here and there with sparkly squeeze tube fabric paint.

Adding a special touch to clothes with glittery fabric paint.
The upper left is my Cubs t-shirt.  I’m not a baseball fan, I just think the shirt is cute.  Now it’s even cuter with ruby-red paint outlining the logo and all the letters. 

The upper right is a Garfield tank top I got from a dollar store years ago.  I outlined the heart and glasses with silver and added some diamond paint in a few spots.

The lower left is just some old shirt I got from who-knows-where.  That is my hand traced in silver.  I just love handprints.

The lower right is a pair of short I hardly ever wear, that will change now.  I made purple clovers with silver centers and ruby dots between them.  Who says 4 leaf clovers can’t be purple.

Flower pins made from old floppy disks. 
A wardrobe makeover wouldn’t be complete without accessories.  I made these pins using the round metal thing from old floppy disks. 

I remember seeing the idea before, but I can’t quite remember where.  I think it was on Craftster

A little paint, some fake flowers and a pin back and they are ready to wear.  After drying of course.

Here’s the updated list:

  • Altered jacket
  • doll house
  • sleeping bags
  • hat
  • Glittery makeover

    Three more to go.  I am almost finished with the house.  Look forward to it.

    Give it a try:
