When your brand new white cotton vest top develops black oil stains......
....and the jeans that still fit your daughter so well look like this at the bottom.....
.....there really is only one course of action.....
.....THE WARDROBE REVAMP!!
First the vest.
A favourite image is chosen from your favourite scrapbook paper.
Scanned into Photoshop.
Enlarged and printed.
Traced onto freezer paper and very carefully cut with a scalpel.
Then ironed onto the offending article....
....and stencilled with fabric paint.
To produce your very own designer t-shirt.
Now for the jeans.
Cut the grotty hems off as far as necessary to remove holey and frayed bits.
Give your daughter the choice of some of your favourite fabrics.
Replace said hems with new flowery ones.....
.....and for good measure add some groovy patches to cover grass-stained knees and pen-marked thighs!
Your daughter will, of course, have her own ideas so hearts may need to be appliqued to the second pair :)
Then you will need to get up at 6.30 on Sunday morning to blog about it!!!
Here are some more freezer paper stencilling links:
.....and now I need to go through both our wardrobes and do this to all our clothes!!!
I also quite fancy embellishing a bit with embroidery, sequins, seed beads and buttons....
....oh deary deary me....what have I started....
