"I'm Too Sexy"

(by Right Said Fred) I'm

I'm Too Sexy by Right Said Fred on Grooveshark



I didn't post today's song because I actually think that about myself ~ I picked it for this line:


"I'm too sexy for my shirt."

Because I have officially completed one of the items on my list: the t-shirt refashion!!

I know that refashioning a t-shirt isn't something most people would put on a list of things to do before they die, but it was part of my effort to do more crafty things! Also, I wanted to put something on the list that I could actually accomplish soon {so I could start crossing things off!} Plus, by putting it on there, I would actually do it!

Anyways Jana sent me the link to a t-shirt refashion tutorial MONTHS ago, & I finally got the nerve to try it! I bought the shirt like the week after I got the link, but I've been afraid that I would ruin it. So it stayed on the hanger in my closet all. summer. long.

I had my sewing machine out last week, working on a project that I plan to blog about later. Since I had it out, I also took in a shirt that was a little too blousy. After stalling for days {yet leaving the sewing machine out, because I really did want to do the shirt refashion}, I finally got the guts to do it! I mean, seriously, the shirt cost about $3! What would it hurt if I ruined it?! I didn't do it exactly like the tutorial, because I decided I didn't want quite as much texture.

So, without further ado...Here's the shirt:

& here I am wearing my newly refashioned shirt:

& here's a little close-up of the texture detail:


Yay for online tutorials! Have you taken advantage of any lately?

Great job! I have never tried it, but I would like to. No matter how many times my mom has shown me how to sew I always forget. Jeremy on the other hand has altered some of his clothes, go figure.
