Well, I'll tell you what happened...visions of Africa danced in my head.
Here's the skirt that's been sitting in my closet for a year. I loved it at the time but due to the relaxed dress code of my job (which I love), I RARELY EVER wear skirts anymore so this baby has been taking up space:
And a few how-to conversations later with my AWAA/blog buddy Andrea, this unwanted skirt turned into the focal point of a very cool t-shirt design....so much more totally in-line with my life right now...comfortable and chic.
I'm not sure yet but I may go in the direction of using these as our fundraiser tees. The map colors and fabrics will all be different for each tee and I'll become more of a pro at sewing...I don't know, what do you think???
("CJ", our 10-year old, was my fashion photographer for this pic...at one point, he even said, "Open your eyes a little more." LOL. Hopefully you'll get the gist of it to see that the skirt became a replica of the continent of Africa...do you see?)
