From drab to fab!
Well, the photos are not very good, but you will be able to see the difference. My very old coat, which was very much loved and used, was at first a long one, then I cut it just above the knees and wore it for a couple more years. After that I decided that it was not fashionable anymore, and forgot about it.
But no, I don’t throw away things easily. I even kept the fabric that was cut off! And recently, I decided to play with it. I used Sizzix Tattered Florals Die to make the flowers, Tattered Leaves Die for the leaves (of course),and also several of my crocheted flowers, and beads. I attached them to the collar and the sleeves, and the coat looks very pretty now! Well, at least to me.
It took me many hours to do this, but it was worth it.
Because it is an old coat I could play with no fear of ruining it, but in the end it turned out great and I’m going to wear it again! That’s how I am – when I buy something I really like, I have no intentions on getting rid of it until it’s completely destroyed.
Another successful project. Me happy.
Have a great day/evening everyone!
