The other day I was attempting to organize my closet and get rid of some clothing items that I don't wear anymore. Somehow, over the years, I'd collected one too many gray tank tops. Needless to say, at least one of those tops landed in the donation pile. Of course, my obsession with crafting, recycling, and reusing got the best of me and it didn't stay in the donation pile for long.
I decided to turn my extra tank top into a blog post and a much more interesting clothing item. After all, how much room does one tank top really take up in the closet?
My general wardrobe is pretty boring. I don't have any cool shirts with funny sayings or trendy prints. I tend to lean towards neutral and solid colors. But just because I don't own anything trendy or fun doesn't mean I don't admire those who do. My problem is that I can never find the cute stuff I see on Pinterest in stores. And by the time I do, it's pretty much out of style. Of course, that could be because I like to shop at places like Marshall's and T.J. Maxx that only get the good stuff after everyone else is done with it. But whatever, I like what I like.
I started doing some research and came up with a way that I could start my own trends. Fabric paint! Yup, that's right. If you can't find it, or don't want to pay for it... make it. Freezer paper is just a way of making the fabric painting process easier. Check it out.
