So, for tonight, I attended a lovely catered dinner at our new church, just for the ladies. It was beautiful. Each table was sponsored and decorated by one or two women. Our table was 80s themed. Side ponytails, crimped hair, Pixy Stix and Smarties, and LOTS of awesome memorabilia. Well, I don't really have any truly 80s themed clothes (okay, maybe, but this allowed me to finish something, so go with it!). I was getting ready to finish working on my friend's maternity skirt, which I will hopefully publish tomorrow, when I remembered I had a t-shirt incompletely-refashioned from back in April that might work out for 80s.
I can't find the original pic of the shirt before I played with it, but it was a pill-y stretched out THIN shirt that I had grown tired of wearing because I always needed to wear a cami under it. An in the 100+ degree weather we've had the last few MONTHS, an extra layer of anything, even thin cami material is one too many! I dug through my fabric stash and found some prints I would probably never use any other way and cut hearts out of them. I suppose you could do different sizes, but I made mine all the same size. Ironed some double-sided interfacing on them, then ironed them onto the shirt. And there the shirt sat for months. I zig-zag stitched around each heart in a different color to coordinate with the patterns twice to make sure the colors stood out and to reinforce the stitching...et voila!!
