One of the things I did was wait patiently for my Kid Rock First Kiss promo pre-sale pack to arrive, which it did - on time and in good shape...
Even though the tee-shirt fit, I'm just not crazy about how t-shirts look on me. I usually "flash dance" them. I cut the necks off so they won't choke me and I cut the bottoms off so they don't look like a dress and sometimes I even alter the sleeves.
I decided to remake my First Kiss tee. I wanted to use pink fabric for the remake, but I couldn't find any.
I was then going to use black fabric, but couldn't find any that matched either. Finally, I went to Michaels to get a pink tee and use it, but once again, nothing matched. I finally decided on a red shirt to match the fire on the hottie's cigarette.
Now, lets get started. I have one particular top that I wear all the time, so I decided to use it as my "go by". This is it...
And now, making this sound incredibly easy, I sewed the triangles pieces together, making new side seams. Then I sewed the straight edges of the triangles, to the straight edges of tee shirt (which I had opened at the side-seams). After I did that, I tried it on several times so I could decide about the length of the shirt and how far I wanted to scoop out the neck, and through the magic of modern technology (i.e. my super duper fantastic Bernina sewing machine) I ended up with this...
So in between staying in touch with all my new KR friends on facebook, hanging with my homies and whining about the snow, and of course, keeping up with my shows, this is what I did.
As I always have a project going, I think my next project is to re-learn how to use my embroidery module, on my machine, so I can monogram some baby blankets and other stuff for my friend's baby that will be delivered in April or May.
Hopefully, my best friend (aka my sister) will also be here this spring and I can post some pictures of the fun we have, and of the finished house that you've all been watching as it's been remodeled this last year.
Well, that's all from Planet Keene. Stay cool, (but stay warm) and don't do anything I wouldn't do.
