one shirt, three ways

I recently saw a leather trimmed shirt and loved the idea of adding a little leather (or a fake, cheaper version called vinyl) to a simple tee.  So, after a trip to Joann Fabric (love that store), I came up with a little pocket, with red thread (I guess I like red accents? seeing a theme in my homemade creations).  

You can't really see the shirt in this picture, but I wore it out last night for a few drinks with good great friends! 


  With the extra t-shirt material, I ended up braiding a few strips around an old gold-turned-bronzed bangle.  

 And, due to a new found love of bleaching stuff to make it look cooler (thanks, Emily!), I turned one sleeve of this old grey shirt into a cool headband. 

**have a great weekend**


  1. LOVE the headband. I might have to jump on the bleaching wagon.

    1. Thanks! The bleaching bandwagon is an easy one to jump on! Have fun!
