So the other day I was going through my old clothes that I didn’t wear anymore and things that are just taking up space in my closet. Before I do anything with them I take them to my sister’s see what they want, we often trade clothes – although they are a size smaller than I am, I get ideas in how to wear them or use them.
I pretty much do the same with my boyfriends tees. Like his old baseball shirts that used to fit him in the high school days, I get to keep them and wear them around the house.
So here’s where I’m going with this story..
My sister’s actually wanted to give away clothes they didn’t want. Garage sales are too much work and going to Plato’s closet just isn’t worth it – just so they can take 3 shirts out of the 2 trash bags full of really good taken care of clothes and give you 7 bucks for it? Yeah, no.
So I got motivated and started going to places were they buy off clothes or places to donate them like goodwill and Texas Thrift.
But Being the shopping addict that I am, I got distracted and maybe carried away with looking through the clothes. I found several items that I fell in love with, especially in the men’s side. Seriously, one persons old clothes is someone else’s treasure.
Here’s a Thrifted Tee I cut up and Revamped:
– Fabric Scissors ,a Pencil and that old shirt
Set it up and here’s what you do:
1.Draw your outline
If you’re like me, don’t get carried away and start cutting everything. Set up your lines with a pencil.
2.Dont be afraid!
Here comes the scary part…
Now I pretty much got all my old clothes back and I wondered how am I gonna make this interesting enough to wear again? Even though I just bought more clothes!
It’s a never ending cycle everyone.
