Fit to be Tied












This an idea I've been thinking about. I've been wanting to do some t-shirt projects (instant gratification:):)) this one took about 20 minutes. I really like the lacing, kind of romantic looking. But this is just a rough first project. Not at all what I want the finished product to look like! I'll probably try to make another, as soon as my pile of unfinished projects gets smaller! I always want to start another project before I finish the one I'm working on! But hey, that's what closets and drawers are for, right?!? No? Oh!:):)
Saturday I went with my brother and sister-in-law to some (ok, 30) garage sales on the Route 127 yard sale. Most of them were wiped out, but I snagged a shoebox full of zippers . I know,like I need more zippers (I don't)!! But, for that price, I'm taking 'em! And another pattern!:)

  5. The lacing on the back is really cool. I could imagine going so many different directions with the choice of fabric, color, and t-shirt.
