Back in October, I went to a staff development day for work. It was one giant teacher conference, with a lot of classes to take, and of course a free goody bag! Unfortunately the bag had this on it:
Just in case you have trouble figuring out the writing, it says – Igniting your awesome! I think it’s an absolutely amazing inspirational quote, but not when it looks so sad and washed out :/
I took some nail polish remover (ACETONE is your best friend here!) to get rid of most of the writing.
Then I got some fabric for the new applique to go over the writing! This came off of an old T-shirt I freecycled a while back, and it’s just been sitting in my closet, waiting for it’s moment! And well, it finally came!
I was debating which piece to use for my refashion and whether to do both front and back, or just front, and finally decided on this:
The brown lace trim came off of the same shirt that I cut up last week for my wall art DIY 🙂
The next step was the longest and probably the most painful one, because I pricked my finger with a needle a few times! But I hand sewn it all together! And the result was just amazing!
Yes, it is Monopoly Star Wars edition sticking out of my newly refashioned bag!
I hope every single one of you had a blessed Thanksgiving! And a successful Black Friday!
