A Tale of Two Shirts

I've been sorting and organizing lots of places in my house lately.  When I sort the kids clothes and change them for the season, I start thinking of great things to make for them.  The other week, the girls and I made a "To-Do" bin, each outfit I am to make for them has the materials needed and a post-it note with a quick sketch or notes on what my daughter wants me to do.

So, to make my mind stop coming up with more and more projects, I had to do a quick one and feel like I got at least one thing done before I head back to cleaning and organizing.  This one was super quick, only took as long as the oven took to warm up!

I started with these two shirts, two different manufactures, two different sizes.  Dead match for colors.
Their courtship was quick and they were married and photographed before dinner was even on the table!
Like how she can't stop watching TV long enough for me to take her picture?!?!?!  She tells me she loves it, so we're all happy.  Gotta love a quick upcycle!

Don't forget my give-a-way going on, you've got a great chance, no one's entered as of yet!

Plus, the super awesome Groupon Deal for Cold Stone Creamer is still going on!!!
Peace be with you,

Love it!! I always turn my kids with their backs to the TV, but then they are usually frowning.
